August 2014 - Carnival Valor to Caribbean - Southern
Although I really love Carnival cruise line the Valor is not one of my favorite ships. The reason being its outdated and could use a lot of touching up in many areas. I only agreed to give it a 2nd try because it was about 10 of us going this time. I will admit that we had one of the most beautiful views in our scenic ocean view cabin 9199 and the cruise director Felipe was remarkable. Also the washington lower dining room staff were wonderful as well as the food. This was the 1st time that my group and I ate in the main dining room every evening on any ship. The housekeeping service wasn't good at all which was somewhat due to staffing issues. Barbados and St. Maarten were my favorite of the ports we visited.
