Great vacation on the Valor 08/12/2012
Destination: Western Caribbean
We had a great time on the Valor! We had two rooms with balconies, which were wonderful! Balconies are a must for future trips. We took advantage of some fun excursions and enjoyed each of the ports. We rented a 6 seater electric car in Key West which allowed us to explore more than we could on foot. We snorkeled in Grand Caymen, and climbed a waterfall and swam with dolphins in Jamaica. We had an amazing experience at each port! I think everyone on the ship would agree that the stops at each port were too short. We didn't get a full day in at any of the ports and that was disappointing.
Our dining team was exceptionally attentive, we had the late dining in the Washington Dining Room. Our wait staff greeted us by name each night,treated us like great friends, and made wonderful recommendations. We were sad that our trip was ending and we hugged them goodbye on our last night! The food was fine, I didn't have to cook or clean up, so what could be so bad?
My only More complaint about the entire trip had nothing to do with the ship or crew, but rather with our fellow travelers. Young kids running and screaming down the halls, slamming doors, swimming in the hot tub, and smearing food in the elevators was too common. We will book our next trip when school is in session. Less
