Overall, the Valor is a beautiful ship and very easy to navigate around. The entertainment was excellent, from the stage shows to the lounge bands. Especially loved having the steel drum band back! A lot of ships we've been on have discontinued the steel drums. We value them as part of the cruising/island experience. The staff was very friendly and dedicated. The food didn't seem as good as on other cruises, but not bad. I would go on the Carnival Valor again in a heartbeat!
