Ship: Carnival Valor
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The ship was clean, fun, and well maintained. The cruise overall was quite good. The entertainment was great. My favorite was Laurie in the Lindy Hop piano bar. She was very funny and a great performer.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was excellently prepared and there was a great selection of specials each night along with their "standard" fare. I don't like assigned seating, and I think Carnival should not charge extra for "anytime dining."

Great shopping and food, but didn't do any excursions.

We went on the Allura stingray swim, which was excellent. However, for the amount of money we spent per person, and considering the time of day and length of time we were gone, the catamaran should have provided sandwiches or snacks in addition to juice.

Had a great time seeing the monkeys and birds at the Gumbalimba park!

I really enjoyed the excursion to see the Mayan Ruins at Xunantunich! The guides were very informative, and lunch was provided. It was great food, too!

Pros: Food, piano bar, excursions

Cons: Too many kids. :) Will have to plan better next time.

Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!
