Review summary

Was a wonderful cruise. This was our 1st cruise and now plan on many more. Only bad part is that the Valor is moving to NOLA. So next summer we can't book for this ship anymore. As we live in Texas and like going out of Galveston. Already booked Freedom which from what I see is similar to the Valor, hope the crew is as nice!

Smooth as we had FTTF for this cruise. We didn't relies our room was ready when we got on board until we stopped a crew member and she told us our room has been ready!
