We recently enjoyed a cruise on the Carnival Valor ship to the Caribbean Islands. The room was fantastic. And I would highly recommend the balcony room. We enjoyed standing on the balcony as we arrived and departed from the many different ports. The food was fantastic and plentiful. We enjoyed the meals in the dinning room so much that we attended them every night. The other restaurants throughout the ship provided a great dinning experience. I especially liked the Sushi Bar. The variety of food was so great that we did not have enough time to try all the options.
The pools and sun decks were wonderful with great service. Any time we wanted a drink it there was an attendant close by to provide one. The adults only pool area was a great option. It provided a quiet place to relax and enjoy our time. This was especially great during the one cooler day on board. The adult pool area had a retractable ceiling. On the cooler day they kept it closed and we had a nice area with natural light to relax.
The shows in the Ivanhoe Theater were great overall. The only down point was that we were on a ship with a group playing Bingo and their bingo time ran over into the show time occasionally. The rest of the entertainment on board was excellent as well. We attended several of the comedy shows in the Eagles lounge. The only suggesting I have for those on the cruise would be to get there early to make sure you get a good seat. And only sit in the front if you want the comedian to call on you.
Overall this was the best vacation I have ever had. I am looking forward to planning our next cruise.
