Good time with Friends

Sail Date: September 19, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was clean and run efficiently. We had great weather and the ports were interesting. Poor entertainment, slow service, and unwillingness to correct problems.

Pros: Ports of Call

Cons: Onboard entertainment

Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!

Scheduling with late seating was a problem AND the quality of the performances was very low. There were two exceptions; the Variety Show and ODETA both were very good.
Cabin / Stateroom
Air conditioning did not work for 4 days. Staff was relunctant to bring in a fan for circulation.
Ship Quality
Clean and efficiently run.
Food and Dining
Slow service, not much variety in taste -- all sauces tasted the same, but plenty of it and nicely presented. Late seating has conflict with other onboard activities.
Service and Staff
Stewards were very attentive.Wait and bar staffs were a little slow and the purser and maintenance staff would not listen or try to correct the problem.
Belize City, Belize
The Sites and Sound tour was very interesting. Locals tried to show us everything they are proud of. However, the port area was so "seedy" that you did not feel safe.
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Mahogany Bay was simply beautiful. Pristine water, wonderful activities and a comfortable "manmade" down town.
Don't Miss: Mahogany Bay area was a tourist's dream. Great shopping, eating, drinking
George Town, Grand Cayman
Bus tour took you all around -- nice variety of things. Turtle center was very interesting. Seven Mile beach was beautiful.
Cozumel, Mexico
Can't say because I took the tour over to Tulum, which was wonderful.
Don't Miss: Mayan ruins in Tulum
