I like Valor because the dining staff is great at night where they dance and perform each night.  The pizza was great, all the other things were similar to all the other carnival cruises.  I like this cruise because it takes off from port canaveral which is a shorter drive than Miami.  Nothing wrong with this ship but didn't like Carnival changed the perks, especially the week of my cruise they changed the past guest party to diamond and platinum only.  Carnival is slowly taking away the perks so will look at other cruise lines now.

Entertainment Didn't see any shows

Onboard Activities Didn't use
Destinations and Excursions
Costa Maya was the best
Port Canaveral, Florida
Shorter drive than Miami
Cozumel, Mexico
Belize City, Belize
Didn't like the debarkation process, the officials came one hour late. The ship docks at sea so have to take a boat out which backs up the lines. The people in Belize are definitely not customer service oriented and one of the officials told me the wrong ship time and almost missed the boat.
Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Mahogany Bay is good very easy and accessible but go out and enjoy the city because people are going to the beach for free the local tours are offering amazing discounts.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Best time on cruise was on Costa Maya. Took cab to downtown and went to the beach and they have great customer service, massage on the beach and anything you want they will get for you.
