This was our second Carnival cruise. It was flawless. Our head waiter, Sam,  was attentive, personable, and expertly guided us through dinners.

 

Our one recommendation is to spend more time in San Juan. The time in port was too short.

My favorite part of this cruise were the island in which we visited. St Thomas and the Grand Turks were the beat. I really like San Juan not so much St Kitts..i thought we could have had more time on some of the islands. As we left St Kitts we seems to have traveled up and made a loop to get to San Juan. It was a shop stop in San Juan and more time would have been nice. Also more time at the Grand Turks. Our ship was supposed to dock at 8 in florida and docked at 7. The services on board ship have been cut in the last 2 yrs since we traveled. I was not as impresses with the valor as some of the other ships I have been on. The services in the medical center need to be revamped. Over all we had a great time.  We had a balcony this time and I hope I never have to go back down again this was awesome.

Cruise was amazing. The food and free drinks could have been much better but overall it was great and we enjoyed it. Nassau was pretty rough. A lot of demanding going on through out the streets. Free port was my favorite. Very nice and kind ppl on that island. Half moon cat was great just wished there were more straw market options.

Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date:

Overall a great experience, but sadly the fact we were celebrating our honeymoon was swept under the rug by guest services. We were told we would have a special gesture one day/night, and when I brought this up to guest services on the last day I was ignored and shooed away to allow other guests to be helped. We watched a handful of people celebrating anything from a birthday to an anniversary receive recognition as well as special treatment. This was not the case for us, and made us feel like we weren't valued guests.

Cruising is a mindset

Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date:

The breeze and salt air are luscious and free!  The fun and good times are in your attitude. The ship was well maintained and safe.  The staff, in spite of the language barriers ( sometimes), was helpful and friendly. Our room steward was awesome. Things we needed and wanted just appeared. He learned our routine and worked around us. The room itself, an inside cabin on deck 10, was larger than expected. The only real objection I had with the food was that I felt leftovers are best served in the home kitchen.  The pool movies were great when they didn't make changes at the last minute. The headliner, Jim Gaffigan, was horrible. However , Jackson Rayne, an illusionist and escape artist, was fantastic.  I would gladly have given the $30.00 I paid to Jim Gaffigan to him.  Other entertainment was good and ports of call were enjoyable. Embarkation and disembarkation were remarkably easy. 

All in all, I would sail with this cruise line and ship again.

This was about my 10th cruise, second on Carnival.  Honestly my expectations were not high but we could not have been happier!  The staff, the ship, the stops were all amazing.  The food was way beyond what I expected.  I do wish there were more 24 hour food options though.  We had a balcony room which was spacious and beautiful.  We will definitely sail on the Valor again!

The excursions were such fun and weather was perfect.

Great service, but Bacardi tour a little dull. didn't see anything happening there.

People great, bus drivers super on all tours.

Embarking and debarkation process smoothest we had in a long time.

Ship was clean and neat and crew happy to help out in anyway they can.

Even medical crew was  quick and helpful for my head cold.

You may wish to try anytime dining. I like to watch the sunset, and it would allow me to do that. Also take the time to explore the ship and all it has to offer.
