I have been on a few carnival cruises, by far this ship was the worst.  Food in the buffet line needs some radical improvements.  Food was often very tough and chewable.  One day they had veal parm which was the toughest I have ever had.  No more chocolate mints on your pillow, no ice delivered to the rooms.  The food served in the dining room was excellent but the buffet was something else.  I thought all Carnival ships had "guy's burgers" not on the Valor.  The burgers and hot dogs were terrible.  The pizza and deli counter was very good.  The fish n chips area here again, I have had this on other carnival ships which was excellent - terrible here on the Valor.  Awaken at 3 am for a "bravo alert" apparently a crew member push the wrong button - announcement went to every cabin on the ship.  Embarkation and debarkation were excellent - on and off the ship very quickly and smoothly.

Cabin is very quiet - the back of the ship is the very quiet.

buffet dining needs to be updated and better prepared dishes.
Port Canaveral, Florida
Cozumel, Mexico
Belize City, Belize
Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
This was just a souvenir stop - a port carved out of a jungle. Not worth stopping here.
