7 Night Exotic Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 25, 2007
Ship: Carnival Valor
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple

This was our first time on a cruise, but it certainly will not be the last time. We really enjoyed the relaxed and casual atmosphere on the ship, and the freedom to do or not do the activities. The service of the staff was fantastic, with the exception of the gym staff. We paid extra for yoga classes, but the instructors were less than enthusiastic about teaching them. Advertised aerobics classes were either taught reluctantly or even cancelled. So do not count on group exercise on this ship. We did however get plenty of exercise walking up and down the stairs, as evidenced by the lack of the dreaded 10 pound weight gain reported for cruise ship passengers.

Cave tubing was fantastic, except that too many people were allowed on at the same time.

Beach was not more rocky than expected.
