A fun cruise on the Carnival Valor

Sail Date: June 06, 2010

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

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.

Pros: Food, piano bar, excursions

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

Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!

Food and Dining
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."
Service and Staff
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Our cabin was always well maintained and the steward was friendly and prompt.
Especially the piano bar! Loads of fun.
Cozumel, Mexico
Great shopping and food, but didn't do any excursions.
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Had a great time seeing the monkeys and birds at the Gumbalimba park!
Belize City, Belize
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!
George Town, Grand Cayman
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.
