Carnival Valor - Eastern Caribbean
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Food selection was great at Rosie's - as well as the oriental station, deli (reuben sandwiches, fresh rolls) and pizza bar. Our dining room was the Lincoln- although decorated in PINK, a little tacky, the food was great, the wait staff was excellent (LAWEE) and the dining staff performed every night just before dessert. The entertainment was the best we've seen on a ship too. The Friday night show was by far the best- a tribute to the 80's "Far from Over"- 2 comedians- Jim Brick was good, the other wasn't though.

Lots of bars- not tucked away from the rest of the world though, so you could enjoy music and people watching. Staterooms were decent size, we were on Riviera- not by choice. Some nights it was a bit rough, both kids were sick from the motion. Cabin stewards were very attentive and I miss them already! Who else would pick up after you and your kids (and husband) twice a day & still smile?!?!
Nassau was rushed- stingray tour wasn't that great (Grand Cayman was better)- you just stand in shallow water where they are penned. St. Thomas is beautiful- Maegan's Bay a good choice, and how about Paradise Point- you can shop, eat, drink and enjoy the best view in the Caribbean- St. Maarten was a pleasant surprise. We took the Golden Eagle Catamaran to snorkel... the guys on this ship must have asked everyone at least 20 times each way if they needed anything- (Beer, rum punch & drinks for the kids included in the excursion price- and sandwiches on the way back). Snorkeling wasn't that great- but the trip on the catamaran made up for it. Overall, this ship was a 9.5 out of 10. Less
