7 Night Exotic Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 02, 2010
Ship: Carnival Valor
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ship was extremely clean and well taken care of. The temperature was always right around the boat and adjustable in our balcony stateroom. The dining room food was great. The buffet food was okay and you can't go wrong with icecream 24 hours a day!
The ship and staff was 4 star at all times. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Careful with the sign and sail card. Your bank account does not reflect the true balance of what you're spending until the end of the trip.

Food and Dining

Dining room food was awesome. Buffet food was okay. Food was always available and there's something for every type of diet.

Service and Staff

4 star service at all times. At one point I did have an issue with our neighbor being too loud but the staff handled it and I received a very nice apologetic letter the very next morning.

This port was okay. We just walked to the Mahongony Beach for free and laid out on some beach chairs. We didn't have to pay for an excursion.

Turtle Farm, Hell, and Stingrays is a must.

Favorite. We did the horsebackriding at Bacab Eco-Park. Ate some good food at the Wet Lizard.

Pros: The service of the staff was impeccable

Cons: Too easy to spend money with the sign and sail card.
