Almost an Excellent Cruise
Carnival Valor Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
Sail Date: June 22, 2008
Ship: Carnival Valor
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago
Review SummaryA recent addition to the Carnival fleet, Valor's operations and facilities were excellent. The staff was excellent, with only a few exceptions. The decor was unusual (Heroes) but flowed well, in typical Carnival fashion. The Megatron TV at the pool was incredible (everybody should have one of these). The variety of bars, clubs and discos was good, and had a flavor for everybody's mood, all the time.
Ports of Call
Don't Miss: Scuba, Learn to Scuba, and snorkelling are the best you're going to get in the Carribean.
Don't Miss: Don't bother with the ruins. We didn't go but consistently heard "Not worth the money or time".
Don't Miss: Scuba diving and learn to scuba are the must-do's if you can.
Don't Miss: If you're scuba diving, go off-ship, and see Seasportbelize.com. $40 cheaper, and the best staff for diving of the three ports where we scuba'd.
Pros: The food on Carnival ships continues to beat other cruise lines
Cons: The kids programs for 9-11 year olds is AWFUL
