Great affordable Family Vacation

Sail Date: March 29, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

What a great vacation with the family. So much to do on board who needs ports.

Pros: If I have to pick one, I would say the kids camp was fun for our 5 & 7 year old boys

Cons: Having to pay for soda and seeing empty beer bottles in stairways

Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!

Ship Quality
Like new and its amazing how staff continues to clean
Food and Dining
Buffet, dining and steak house were all fantastic. Armondo made dining fun.
Cabin / Stateroom
How do they do it? Does Umporn ever sleep? How does he remember everyones names. Now thats incredible. Bathroom was a bit tiny but you have to remember your on a ship.
Service and Staff
Although most of the crew were a bit too formal, Armondo and Umporn helped to make the trip. Hats Off !!

They spend 6 or more months on the ship with no family, they need to let their guard down a bit.
Again who needs the ports when there is so much to do on board.
Children's Programs
Our 2 boys loved the activities and my wife and I felt comfortable leaving them with your staff.
Cozumel, Mexico
George Town, Grand Cayman
Belize City, Belize
The butterfly area was a bit weak but time spent by the pool area made the butterfly trip worth it. What a beautiful pool area in the middle of no where.
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
