Carnival Valor

July 2016 - Carnival Valor to Caribbean - Eastern

49th Anniversary - no Valor for 50th!

Cruising is something that if you do it once you will always want more, but not in this case.  We arrived on our actual anniversary and had to remind staff at the Scarlett about the occasion.  Service was great there and on the ship as a whole.  Best thing about the cruise actually.  The Valor is in need of some updating.  The Ocean View we had was in the corner on the main deck at the end of the ship. We got our exercise and were rocked to sleep each night. Thank God for motion sickness meds.  Chose this itinerary to see eastern Caribbean ports. Looked forward to dress up nights but it was basically come as you are.  Pools small and overcrowded, enjoyed Serenity Deck for adults only.  The food was O.K. not what I expected on a cruise line.  Guy's Burger Joint and the Pizza was the best thing on the Lido Deck. Ports were pretty good, but would be concerned about venturing out alone without a tour guide for safety sake. Second cruise on Carnival ready to try another cruise line or newer ship.

vodurr's Tips

Grand Turk Island - Great beach, shops, pools, food at port owned by Carnival. Toured into city - nothing else going on.
Basseterre, St. Kitts - Booked excursion on island. Had a great tour guide. Once away from port, very poor surroundings. Would not feel safe without a guide or group.
Port Canaveral, Florida - allow 45 min or more for shuttle service from Orlando airport. We used Cortran - great service and reasonably priced ($80 rd trip for two).
Carnival Valor Carnival Valor - Serenity Deck (adults only) nice touch. Pools small - go early - hot tubs not hot!
