A very nice cruise!

Sail Date: October 14, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

The ship was very large and was full for our sailing. You never felt crowded except when you were eating at any of the dining places except for the 2 two main dining rooms where you have assigned tables. Ship was very clean. Embarkation was very quick. If you get a suite it gives you VIP status. We arrived at the terminal early that morning and dropped off our luggage and returned around 11:30 in the morning and walked right on the ship with no hassle. Getting off the ship and getting through customs takes about 1 hour and moved pretty quick also.

Pros: great ports of call, great staff, suite was great

Cons: Carnival is always taking a picture even when you are trying to get of ship at each port which slows the process

Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!

Ship Quality
Large ship, Ship was very clean. You did notice some spots on the floors but there was always a crew member cleaning the halls to keep them in the best shape possible.
Food and Dining
Great variety of food. Food was always excellent in the main dining room. Food in Rosies was acceptable with many varieties.
Cabin / Stateroom
Suite number 7269 was great and with plenty of room. Also keep in mind if you book a suite you get VIP status for getting on and off of the ship which is great. We were on the ship in less than 10 minutes. Bed was very comfortable.
Service and Staff
Staff was excellent. They treat you like kings. We found no staff member that was not willing to answer any question you had.
Good variety of shows. We did not attend all shows but did talk with other people on the ship who stated the shows were great.
George Town, Grand Cayman
We took the escursion that took us to swim with stingrays and then took us to a beach for lunch. Nice time but was probally my least favorite place if there was one.
Belize City, Belize
CAVE TUBING, What a great time. You hike about 45 minutes through the rainforest stopping along the way for a swim and a chance to jump off of a small cliff into the water. You tube for about an hour through the caves. We had a blast. You will not be left with much time for shopping but it is worth taking. We had about 1 hour to shop when we returned.
Cozumel, Mexico
The best time. We took the jeep and snorkel tour. The best time. You will not see or swim in any prettier water. A must do in Cozumel.
Don't Miss: Tour the island it is beautiful.
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Very poor country but all of the people were extremely nice. I never felt uncomfortable. DId the pirates, birds and monkeys vist at the park. We hd a nice time and then we were able to relax on the beach and swim. Beautiful place great pictures.
