7 Night Exotic Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 11, 2006
Ship: Carnival Valor
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 11 years ago
This cruise was out of Miami and little did we know that there would be 100 Quinceaneras (latin girl's 15th birthday celebration) and their families celebrating on this cruise. This left us feeling like outsiders intruding on other people's vacations. We wish we would have known this before we booked. The daily activites were also lacking which left us bored on Monday when we couldn't even lay out on the Lido deck because it was raining.

Kohunlich Mayan ruins was awesome. This is on eof the last ruin sites where you still get to walk up to the top of the temples and everything. Don't miss this one!!

We went on the Monkey park excursion which was wonderful. Just a little advice though, there are sand fleas on the beach so bring some repellant.
Don't Miss: Monkey Park

We went on the Cave Tubing excursion. It was nice because it was in a river which was about 76 degrees and felt WONDERFUL since it was so hot outside

Pros: formal entertainment, food

Cons: lack of entertainment during the day, unfriendly staff
