Fantastic Cruise

Sail Date: March 27, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was awesome, lots of things to do and very nicely kept. The room steward was wonderful. I still miss his, "good morning". The ship was very clean.

One suggestion, it would be great if they offered a review of the ports for safety - suggested places to visit. As a new cruiser and having not visited the ports before, we were reluctant to venture to far from the port due to safety.

Pros: The different ports visited

Cons: The bingo was definately a waste of time and payoff was terrible

Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!

Food and Dining
The deli was very good. The buffet lines were long at times. The food quality - average - they could do a better job of making sure there is salad dressings are available and full.
Ship Quality
Big and beautiful - most of the staff very friendly and safe.

Cozumel, Mexico
Great Shopping - but they are trying to make a deal so much, they don't let you look.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Stingray City and snorkeling - EXCELLENT!!!!!!
Don't Miss: Stingray City and Snorkeling
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Snorkeling and the park- (forgot the name of the park) Roatan is BEAUTIFUL
Belize City, Belize
We didn't venture too far from port - due to not knowing how safe it was.
