I had a fantastic time!!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date: Aug 24, 2014

I would highly recommend taking this cruise. At first I thought that 7 days would be too long, but all  of the fun things that you can do on the ship was simply put, Aaamazing....They have the comedy shows, movie night outside, the live shows, which by the way excellent. It is like you are watching a Broadway Show. Then you can eat, eat, eat, and eat some more!!! The crew were very pleasant and helpful with any little need that may arise. I had went on my very first cruise on the Carnival Valor and I was not disappointed in the least. I would definitely do it again on the Valor. The hospitality was just phenomenal.  My family and I had went during the last week of August and the weather was just about perfect. I have nothing bad to say about this cruise because we ALL had a great time. To Felipe, you were fantastic!!! Missing my cruise already.... Now I am looking forward to going on another one.....

Had the best experience on the Valor

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date: Jul 13, 2014

I've cruised with several other cruise lines and I still say Carnival is the best. The entertainment was great, The staff was great. They work exceptionally hard to make your cruise experience a great one. The ports were fabulous. The adult comedy shows were hilarious (full house every night).. The people we met were so much fun. There was so much to do, we were exhausted by the end of each night. Carnival is definitely the "Fun Ship". There was something for all ages. The food was good, a liked the variety & the fact that it was available 24hours a day. For those that wanted a more relaxed atmosphere, they had the Serenity Area (for adults only)& an adult only pool area to lay out & relax. Great music throughout the ship, fun games for all. Im already looking into my cruise for next year. Im a Gold Member. If you're looking to have a great vacation experience, upbeat & live, Carnival is the place for you.

Canrival Valor 7 Days in the South Eastern Caribbean

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date: Jul 06, 2014

Hands down the best vacation I have ever experienced, and I have been a lot of places. I have been to 30 countries, took a full year off from work to travel and scuba dive around the globe and this was definitely the best trip I have ever taken. First, if you are wake there is fun to be had, parties, music, dance, dinner, shows, comedy, moonlight, sunlight, jucuzzi, pool, walk about, jog about, steam room, exrecise room, dry sauna, spa, and on, and on, and on. The crew is amazingly attentive. From day one they learn your name and treat you as though you have been there for years. There is adventure at every port. Land-based adventures, water-based adventures, in-town adventures, shopping adventures. You can kayak, zipline, snorkel, lay on the beach, hike, scuba dive, sail, and on, and on, and on.

 

One could take this same cruise 10 times and make it a different cruise each time.

Second time and still a good cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date: Aug 31, 2014

This was our second time going on this cruise. It was flawless just as it was the first time we went on this cruise. The wait staff was great. The ports were great. Great value with only one day at sea. First time going to the steakhouse on board and it was amazing. Casino staff remembered me from last time and they were good. The Carnival shows are very dated and need to be given a face-lift

Family cuise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date: Jul 20, 2014

I picked this cruise because my nephew who has severe sickle cell wanted to cruise from Puerto Rico. I was with a group of ten family members.  I feel the ship should get a little update.  I sailed on the Dream last year. I like the staff and crew much better than on the Dream.  They are much more accommodating on the Valor and more friendly.  I enjoyed the ports as did the entire group. We did not all get seated at the same table for dinner but our table mates were fine.  My two family members not seated with the eight of us were likewise ok after meeting their dinning companions.  My nephew enjoyed the cruise and did not have any issues until Sat. night when he went into a sickle cell crises but we managed it until we got home. I will continue to cruise Carnival.

Third Mate

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.

If you are into soft drinks get the unlimited soft drink card. Do the steakhouse, allow it cost extra $35/person its worth every penny.
