August 2014 - Carnival Valor to Caribbean - Southern
We boarded in puerto Rico around 5pm, the lines were long but it moved quickly.
got to our cabin 2405 on deck 2 ocean view room was clean.
St thomas: We stayed on board we decided to explore the ship. there's a walking track, mini golf course, camp for the kids, water slides.
Day at sea: we relaxed there was a $10 sale which started at 10am this is also the formal night
Barbados: it rained on and off all day. We still got off the ship hubby and i bought rain coats for $6....3 bucks each. Barbados is expensive $20US per person for cabs. We did a tour wasn't too impressed with it. we were bk on board by 1pm.
St Lucia: Simply beautiful, we arranged our tour ourselves. we saw a guy with a snake too a picture fun. the local food was delicious, people friendly. we scurried bk n board for 4:30 b4 the 5pm sail.
St Kitts: Really really hot that day, we didn't venture too far we stayed right at the dock walked around there's a guy with monkeys you can take a pic for 5 bucks alcohol is pretty cheap
St Maarten: i loved, good food, 99cent beers shopping is expensive though they use Euro. There's a MAC store(makeup)bought some stuff, crocs store, cabs are more affordable than Barbados
Food: was good, hubby had some stomach issues 1st 2 days after that he was fine. great variety worker are constantly cleaning.
The pool is saltwater, we played bingo, went to a few shows fun, would love to have had an extra day at sea b4 we went bk to puerto rico, all the ports bk to bk made me tired
I would def cruise again a different itinerary. The ship was clean it does need remodeling the lido deck does seem "old diner" but overall we had fun.
