A great time!

Sail Date: June 19, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was very clean, and had everything you could ask for. The ship was decorated nicely according to the theme. It was a little difficult getting from one part of the ship to another dining room or main steps to the lobby were blocked off at times.

Pros: Service from the housekeeping staff-always prompt and courteous!

Cons: Difficulty getting soymilk as needed for my lactose intolerance.

Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!

Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Adrian our steward took care of everything! The rooms are quite nice and had plenty of room on 2 Main with a window.
Service and Staff
Everyone was very friendly and helpful and tried to meet our needs although my husband had a not so nice experience with a dealer in the casino.
Food and Dining
We really enjoyed the dine at your own time. Most foods were very good. The diet desserts had much to be desired. Once again difficult to get soy milk at times.
There were things to do all the time for anyone.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Enjoyed a tour with another driver not associated with the cruiseline.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Loved the water. A little disappointed in the two island snorkeling. Thought we'd see more fish, but saw a greater variety of sea creatures than usual. Only saw 3 turtles. The staff was terrific.
Don't Miss: Take a scenic tour of the island with one of the friendly drivers after getting off the ship.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
We really enjoyed the beach-clear water, soft sand etc. My family was disappointed that we were unable to rent jet skiis as there were not many available for such a large group.
Don't Miss: The beach.
Grand Turk Island
The beach itself was beautiful, but my family was not happy that the ocean was rocky, uneven and had seaweed. Enjoyed Margaritaville-different than ones we have visited before.
