Review Summary

As we are now in our mid 50's, why did we wait until now to go on a cruise. We had a wonderful trip and 7 days was just not long enough to enjoy all that we would have liked to do. We went on the Carnival Valor to the Western Carribean in March, during a Spring break week. Great weather, Fun ports, and fun sailing. We had an Oceanview room and it provided for all our needs and comfort. Lots of people, but not a problem. Older than us, our age, younger than us, college students on Spring Break, Families with Children, etc., but we were fine with it. We had no bad experiences.

Ports Of Call

Belize City, Belize

The tender trip into port is a little crowded and takes about 15 minutes. But you must take into consideration when doing shore excursions. Good shopping here.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

We enjoyed this port and didn't have to ride tenders into port. Was nice to be dockside and could go in and out as desired.
Don't Miss: Shopping

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

Cons: Debarkation..Long lines and hurry to get off.
