Our waiters Enrico and Danny were wonderful and entertaining! Food was good to very good. Sooooo much food in the buffet, a teenage boys' dream!

The room was small for 4 people getting ready, but very functional. Loved the ceiling drop beds. The beds were very comfortable.

We came on a different day so our scheduled tour had to be rescheduled. We were frustrated with our dolphin excursion due to how we were treated, but that wasn't Carnival's fault.

Don't Miss: Stingraysailing was a fantastic tour.

Schedule a tour in advance. Many options available. Look at We choose Christopher Tours and had an incredible experience zip lining and snorkeling. There are 5 zip lines and they aren't all created equally!

Pros: Our teenage kids had a blast in Club O2. The entertainment was fantastic expecially the dancers. Comedians were great too! Our room was comfortable and very functional for our family of 4.

Cons: They needed more movie variety. Repeating the same movie 3 times was overkill.

Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!
