Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!

Ship Quality
Our cabin was on deck 8 and had no direct access from cabin to the Washington dining room. Had to go down to deck 5/Promenade to access back end of ship
Service and Staff
Dining room waiter & busboy were very friendly. The Maitre D' had difficulty to accomodate our group of 6 in the same table but finally did.
Food and Dining
Liked very much the Sushi Bar, Pizza and Grill bars
Cabin / Stateroom
The shows in the Ivanhoe Theater were all professional quality that can be found in major venues of Las Vegas, New Yorn & LA. The Latin group "Chilango" was excellent and spent a lot of time listening & dancing to them.
George Town, Grand Cayman
The beach in Grand Cayman was excellent. Stayed at Marriott Grand Cayman and for $10/person/day can enjoy the venue including towels, chairs, umbrellas and pool. Can recommend to anyone.
Cozumel, Mexico
Spent a great excellent day in Club Cozumel and would recommend this venue to anyone. The snacks we ate there are very good and the beers also!
Belize City, Belize
My wife & I stayed within port gates, did some shopping & snacked at Hemingway's. Based on our friend's experiences would not recommend going outside of the gates into Belize City.
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Maya Key is a nice beach location but the beach has rocks & boulders making bathing difficult.
