Had a fun time

Sail Date: December 01, 2007

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Our room was on the 8th floor. It was directly below the deck that had all the restaurants (mid ship). You could easily hear people walking around when in the room and at night when we went to bed. It would also be nice if they put some signs up to be considerate with noise level when walking down the halls. It might be a nice reminder that you don't realize how loud you are when leaving and returning to your room. The balcony was great. Showers and bath area was very good. Our steward did a great job. The double beds pushed together makes things a little difficult.

Pros: Easy to find food and entertainment

Cons: Having to wait in line at the pursors office for simplistic issues. Tough to find a chair on the deck.

Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!

Food and Dining
At dinner, the red meat meals seemed tough. The presentations were always impressive. The desserts were great.
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
The double beds pushed together was a little uncomfortable. The bath was well maintained and in very good condition.
Service and Staff
Our server was just OK, but pretty much everyone else was great. Except for the casino guy that I thought was from Ireland and turned out to be from England. Wow...that raised his eyebrow! My fault on that one.
Entertainment
Mixed reviews. Some entertainment was great and some just so-so
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Magans Bay was nice. Pretty crowded though.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Rented a jeep. Be sure what you are getting before you rent. Some of them will try to push you into a substandard vehicle. Plus, there were 4 different rental car places right next to each other. And they are definitely in competition with each other. You can bargain if you're smart. Also, get there quick when the boat parks because they run out of good vehicles pretty fast. The roads can be tricky, so be careful.
Don't Miss: Orient beach was very nice. There are a couple entry points to getting in. Part of the beach is nude. I was OK with that, as a guy....I went topless.
Nassau, Bahamas
The casino was nice because it had shops connected.
