Carnival Valor

June 2015 - Carnival Valor to Caribbean - Eastern

Amazing 50th Anniversary Cruise

From the time we arrived at Port Canaveral to departure we were treated like royalty. Crew members, starting at embarkation to debarkation, were extremely helpful and courteous. Many went out of their way each day to great us with huge smiles and big hugs. Dinner was an amazing experience. Since we were a party of 11 we did not expect to be seated together. We chose open dining and only on two evenings did we have any amount of time to wait before being cheerfully seated (together) and served. We've been on several cruises and I  would have to rate the food among the best we've ever been served on a ship. The entertainment and the ports of call are what each individual makes of them. If you want to enjoy yourself...you will. My prayer is that each and every one of you reading this review will experience the amazing time we had.

galpacker's Tips

Basseterre, St. Kitts - Took the Top 10 excursion and truly enjoyed it. Again the views were incredible.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten - Least favorite of the cruise. Part of that was the excursion we booked through Carnival. We chose the Butterfly Farm. All of us that booked this tour had great difficulty getting connected with the tour guide as their was no usual signage telling us where it was nor did anyone we ask know what to tell us. The tour coordinator on the pier finally located someone from the tour that came and got us. Still no signage. We walked to shore with him and had no bus to take us. We left 35 minutes late but returned on the schedule time of return. Did we miss something?
San Juan, Puerto Rico - There is so much to see. Take the time to walk the streets and experience the locals and culture. It's safe.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas - Great if your into shopping and have never been here before. We've toured it on 5 previous visits so we didn't spend much time on shore.
Bridgetown, Barbados - What a beautiful island. We walked off the ship and got a taxi. It was a nice day but hind sight we should have booked through Carnival. He showed us incredible views of the island but the restroom breaks were the pits! Literally!!!
Castries, St. Lucia - Personal favorite this cruise. First impression was the beautiful port. The scenic overviews took our breath away. We took the Land and Sea excursion and even though it rained we had a wonderful time. Many enjoyed the rum punch on the catamaran but not my favorite as it was spiced.
Carnival Liberty Carnival Liberty - Go early to buffets as they rarely had all lines open which caused more chaos than was necessary. Lines were longer than usual. Eat at the pool side Mexican station or Guys burgers if you don't want to spend valuable time on board standing in line. Visit the ports of call they are worth your time.
Grand Turk Island - The swimmers in our group loved how close the beach was to the ship.
Nassau, Bahamas - Just love being there each time. People are very friendly.
