Large ship with many amenities. Very clean. Few areas of wear and tear. Some popular areas were crowded (i.e main deck pool area and slide).

A lot more dining options including vegetarian than the last Carnival trip I took.

Comedy club was pretty good. There was a good variety for all tastes.

Service and Staff

We did a two tank dive through the ship excusions. The company was well run, efficient, friendly and professional. didn't do much site seeing or shopping. Did eat at "The Breeze" which was over a shop on the main street which had very good food.
Don't Miss: Stingray city (did this before)
5 out of 5
Awesome diving. The best of the trip
Don't Miss: The coral--either diving or snorkeling
5 out of 5
Diving was good. Day was overcast so the coral was not as colorful. It was hot and muggy. Did not make the mainland since the tour operators pick you up directly from the ship.
5 out of 5
This is some of the best diving in the world, by far. It is drift diving, so it takes a little skill to "relax" and let the current take you along the reef.
Don't Miss: The wildlife marine park at the southern end of the island. Great diving and snorkeling

Pros: The excursions

Cons: The crowds

Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!
