7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 12, 2016
Ship: Carnival Valor
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 6452
Traveled As: Large Group

Booked this for my parents 50th anniversary with my siblings and our kids. There were lots of activities to enjoy together and individually. Personally I would have like more time in Grand Turk and St. Thomas and could have skipped over Puerto Rico. Bahamas would have been another good addition.


Overall it was a nice ship and the service was very good.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was good. Surprised how good the quality was in the dining room. Be prepared for long food lines as you return from excursions. Carnival could have done a better job opening more restaurants during these times.

Onboard Activities

The restaurant and housekeeping staff were beyond friendly. They really offer a personal experience.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The Valor is an older ship. Inside it is clean and in very good shape. Outside is very rusty and in need to paint.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Loved the oversized balcony and views.

Ship Tip

Don't miss the Comedy Club. Both the family and adult versions are great! Carnival offered excursions are very good. Grab a space on deck early on days at sea.

Went to Kennedy Space Center after the cruise which was nice. Beyond that the town is nothing spectacular.

Beautiful beaches and nice town to explore.

Very historic city. Hard for it to compete with Grand Turk and St. Thomas.

Island is an absolute paradise! Enjoyed the Bajari Beach Club excursion. Not overcrowded like the beach at the port.
