7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)

Ship: Carnival Valor
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 2277
Traveled As: Couple

The reason why I titled this review for "first timers" as all but one morning you wake up on a new island as well as the captain did not take the ship over 15 knotts; most of the time between 10 to 12 knotts.  So, even though this was our 10th cruise, and I'm a guy that gets "motion sickness", no movement of the ship at all!  The food, service, and entertainment were excellent; everyone knew our names after the first day from the cabin stewart to our waiters.  Since we flew into San Juan, I was concerned about the transfers to and from the dock; nothing to be concerned about, Carnival took care of it all!  Great cruise!

Ship Tip

This was a great cruise for "anytime dining" as our on shore time was really uncertain due to the varied islands!
