Carnival Valor

December 2016 - Carnival Valor to Caribbean - Bahamas

Not the best but not the worst

This was my 4th time on Valor. GOOD: Lee the cruise director, the steakhouse, dinning room service, Juste-cabin steward, Dylan parkwest auctioneer, Karma watch specialist was awesome, Erik & Jose craps table dealers. BAD: interior cabins in need of serious decor upgrade, the shows are dated and lack attraction, dinning room menu staple items need a change, guest service diamond/Platinum service was awful, spa staff members were rude and Nassau/Freeport shouldn't be ports of call until they rebuild from last hurricane damage. Valor has gone through Carnivals 2.0 upgrade but it needs a lot from tlc.

Carnival Splendor

October 2016 - Carnival Splendor to Caribbean - Southern

Great Rest and Relaxition

This was my first time on the Splendor. The SPA people were great and included Charlene, Ricky, Terri and Fatima. The Dinning room serving staff was great and included Marcelo-Chile, Kenneth-Costa Rica, Jose-Honduras and Astini. The Cabin steward, Marc was awesome. The Casino staff was good especially Liza and Annamaria. Brendan the shopping expert was great and offered good advice. The art auction group of Jason, Eva & Kris were great to work with. The auctioneer was really not a people person, but he has a great team that offsets his lack of personality. Fun shops sales associate Elizabeth-Mexico was great to work with. The only thing about the cruise was that enough day light hours were not afforded the port of Curacao because we arrived in port at 130pm.

Carnival Sunshine

October 2015 - Carnival Sunshine to Caribbean - Eastern

First Time

First time with Jaime as cruise director-she is the best in the fleet. First time not being able to see my folio and dinning room menu on the TV in cabin-not good. First time using alternate dinning-JJ's was amazing. First time not being able to walk right up to the "your time" dinning room-Very annoying. First time with wifi that didn't cost an arm and a leg. First time seeing shows with performers singing and dancing-Awesome. Best shows in the fleet-up to date and relative. First time without mailboxes outside each cabin-not good. First time on expanded serenity deck-Awesome. First time in non traditional seating arrangements in lounge-got you up close and personal with cast

Carnival Valor

August 2014 - Carnival Valor to Caribbean - Southern

Second time and still a good cruise

This was our second time going on this cruise. It was flawless just as it was the first time we went on this cruise. The wait staff was great. The ports were great. Great value with only one day at sea. First time going to the steakhouse on board and it was amazing. Casino staff remembered me from last time and they were good. The Carnival shows are very dated and need to be given a face-lift

ncolon60's Tips

Nassau, Bahamas - Stay on the ship and enjoy the amenities. This place is a dump.
Miami, Florida - Its pretty basic like any other mega city in the US
Carnival Fantasy Carnival Fantasy - Go to the shows early because they fill up quickly. Take a stroll through the art gallery on the way to your cabin
San Juan, Puerto Rico - The amount of time is too short to really enjoy the island. Go to Blue diamond for the best watch deals
Carnival Sunshine Carnival Sunshine - Get on line early (5pm.) if your dont want to wait for "your time" dinning
Philipsburg, St. Maarten - Skip the cruise line excursions, because the beach is great right at the port. If you missed shopping in St. Thomas, St. Maarten is a great plan "B". The Rhino runner speed boats is a great excursion and cheaper online then through Carnival.
Castries, St. Lucia - Set up a private taxi tour of the island and dont miss the sulfur baths at the volcano
Bridgetown, Barbados - Set up a private taxi tour of the island. Mount Gay rum is a great buy right at the factory
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas - Little Switzerland if you need a watch and are on a budget. Take the ferry to St. Johns and snorkel. St. john's has great beaches
San Juan, Puerto Rico - Skip the shopping in San Juan. Fly into San Juan the morning of departure. Get a cab from the airport to the ship. Don't the baggage handlers at the port, just take your bags right to a Carnival agent
Carnival Valor Carnival Valor - If you are into soft drinks get the unlimited soft drink card. Do the steakhouse, allow it cost extra $35/person its worth every penny.
