I absolutely loved it

Sail Date: May 25, 2014

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

I absolutely loved my cruise. The itinerary was perfect, the staff very quick and always addressed me by name. My only complaint is the accessability o smoking areas. Often time i noticed that the acceptable areas changed daily and once was told that you could only smoke in the casino if i was actually playing.


I loved the comedy show and the whiskey and stogie tasting. I think the bingo games were a little short but Stephanie was great and kept every energized.

Ship Quality Loved it but i do think the valor is showing a little age
Food and Dining
Love the washington dining room but our table was on the backside so we often missed the show but loved our tablemates too much to change
Service and Staff
Our room steward was awesome (too bad i cant remember his name) but he was always nice. We often visited the poolside bar on lido deck and it was always quick service.
Loved the 80s music show
Onboard Activities
There was always so much to do that i never got bored
Destinations and Excursions
Did the Boss underwater scooter and my only complaint was that i was told the life vest would allow me to float and as a non swimmer i quickly sank. I would suggest that they reword there safety instruction to not imply that would float if not holding onto the boat.
Cabin / Stateroom
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Very walkable with cvs nearby
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

Bridgetown, Barbados
Would be nice to have assistance for those looking to self tour island
Castries, St. Lucia
Basseterre, St. Kitts
Philipsburg, St. Maarten


We mainly had breakfast on Lido. We went to the seaday brunch but werent heavily impressed. I would like to suggest that they inform of the way the eggs are prepared on the menu or ask how you'd like them. I also think that there should be more sign &sail kiosks onboard.
