Loved this ship
Carnival Valor Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
Review SummaryThe ship was huge and very clean. The staff was kind and the photographic staff are top notch. We loved our little interior cabin and found it perfect for us. The shows were great and we loved the comedy acts! The people that we were chosen to dine with were a great fit... we were similiar in age and from a variety of backgrounds ~ we really enjoyed going to dinner (not to mention the dining room food was incredible. ) The folks at the excursion desk are very helpful too. I would have liked to have seen better areas for shopping. There really isn't a good area to pick up a swimsuit or dressier clothing. There is a place for really casual t-shirts & shorts, kids gifts etc. ...so it's really not a big loss ~ it just would've been convenient. I did find great deals on makeup and perfume :) . ~ By the way, we actually sailed in November 2006 ~ not Sept. 07... this site wouldn't accept our correct cruising date for this posting ~ sorry about any confusion there.

Pros: The dinners were great and the Honduras port was a dream ~ loved the monkeys!
Cons: Long tenders and we weren't fans of Belize. The tour guide at the Ruins took FOREVER talking and left little time for us to walk around and take pictures ~ that shipped booked excursion needs work.
