Valor was NOT impressive

Sail Date: March 24, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

I read many reviews prior to booking this cruise. I was not under any illusion that this was going to be a glamorous boat with amazing food. We wanted the islands that this boat had to offer. The food was actually worse than it was on the Dream a year ago and the setup of the bars on this boat was terrible. Everything was very disconnected. The best bar was at the Casino- they had a great band there every night and Corrina makes the BEST Martinis on the boat. BUT you have to deal with the cigarette smoke while you are there. The piano guy was no fun on this ship and the club didn't open until 11pm. We were two singles in our 20's and 30's.. there were very few younger people on this ship. Last year on the dream there were a lot of single groups of people not on this ship. And because there was very little going on between 4 and 10pm.. we were bored. There were couples there celebrating anniversaries that were a bit older than us who also thought it was a boring cruise.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
they got rid of the sushi bar! boo!!!
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
I have to give Carnival 5 stars on the service. We have had great customer service each time we've traveled with them
Children's Programs
Onboard Activities
we payed $30 to play bingo and they didn't tell us it was for ONE game! what a ripoff
Destinations and Excursions
there was a 6 hour excursion in Barbados to go snorkeling/swimming with the sea turtles. Biggest waste of money.
Castries, St. Lucia
the people of St. Lucia were the nicest to us. Great food and really beautiful island


don't do early dinner b/c the boat leaves at 5 almost every day. Don't expect great food anyway.
