Carnival Valor

January 2015 - Carnival Valor to Caribbean - Southern

Second Time even better

We were on this same cruise last year.  We did different activities on each island which made each stop a new adventure.   The excursions were fun and as described.  They left on time and returned as promised.

As usual, the crew was friendly and helpful.  One mattress needed replaced badly. The attendant made a very good attempt to rectify the problem though it was not replaced.  

The food was 9 stars rather than 10.  The Lincoln Room service was great the first 4-nights.  The last two were mediocre.  Find a great waiter and insist on him/her.

We would consider doing this cruise a third time except we want to experience additional islands.

Carnival Valor

January 2014 - Carnival Valor to Caribbean - Southern

Ready to go again

First cruise in 20 years left us wanting more.  So, we decided we are going to repeat this same cruise again with different activities.  Would have preferred longer times in port to allow for more than one excursion.

Our cabin attendent Johnny, 10 forward, port side, was excellent and always greeted us with a smile.

The food was ok to very good, depending on when and where you ate.  Never tried the Fish and Chips because they were only open when we were ashore.

The Activities Director was tireless.  I don't think he slept the entire cruise.  The activities were almost non-stop.  Great shows, comedy, music and much more than we could possibly partake.

Tedgh's Tips

Philipsburg, St. Maarten - Shop, eat, shop drink, shop. Visit Marigot on the French side too. The beaches are beautiful.
Castries, St. Lucia - Beautiful Island. Take an Island tour or water activities. Shopping is limited depending on where the ship ties up. Marigot Bay and the Pitons are a must see.
Basseterre, St. Kitts - Water sports or schedule a "Kittian Taxi" tour. The island is very interesting. Visit the fort, batik factory and beaches.
Bridgetown, Barbados - A water activity would be best. Shopping was mediocre and beware of the taxis
San Juan, Puerto Rico - Add a day to your trip and visit Old San Juan, such a jewel. Visit Barrachina's for an Original Pina Coloda
Carnival Valor Carnival Valor - Enjoy as much of the ship as possible. We had a great time.
Castries, St. Lucia - Took a tour of the area by taxi. Not disappointed, beautiful area. Taking boat to Pitons next time.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten - Not nearly enough time here. Took a taxi tour to Marigot and Orient Beach. Not enough time in Phillipsburg. MUST go back
Carnival Valor Carnival Valor - Where ever your stateroom may be everything on this ship is conveniently located.
