Very good trip

Sail Date: March 01, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

The shows were excellent. Grand Turk was the only port I had not visited before and found it disappointing. I understand the Caicos are much nicer - maybe that could become a stop?
Excursions should have been organized better. In Grand Turk we were led from one place to another w/ much unnecessary walking.
The tour in La Romana (catamaran sail & snorkel) got cancelled but we were not notified. Even at the "meeting place" there was no guide and no info; again, much unnecessary walking and no opportunity to choose a substitution for our excursion.

Pros: sea days at each end for relaxing

Cons: very windy, rough seas (beyond any cruise line's control)

Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!

Ship Quality
Bathrooms in common areas could have been cleaner.
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
The entertainment itself was excellent, but one night there was NO show, and on 2 nights there was only one, at 10:30 (rather late for me, but I went anyhow).
