Good Cruise: Carnival Valor Cruise Review by nward

Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Overall, the cruise was a lot of fun. We had a blast and enjoyed ourselves. The food was good. Your typical cruise ship food. I did not think it was bad. It was just typical. We always found something that we liked to eat. The Fish and Chips stand was good. I like the Mongolian Wok.
We also tried the Steakhouse. It was pretty good. I had the surf and turf. It was good. My boyfriend had the NY strip. He thought it was just OK. I'm glad we tried it.
I liked the Valor. I thought it was a nice ship. The decor was your typical Carnival decor. But, I thought the ship's layout was More nice. On the Victory I kept hitting my leg on those seahorses on the stairs. None of that on this cruise. :-)
The itinerary was fine. I was excited about visiting Grand Cayman. But as I mentioned before, we did not get to visit given Hurricane Sandy. I enjoyed Key West. I thought Costa Maya was just OK. I did not go on any of the excursions. I wasn't impressed with Costa Maya. But, there were quite a few people who enjoyed Costa Maya. So, it's completely subjective. I thought Cozumel was fun. It reminded me of Cancun. But, not as nice. Again, it's subjective.
Overall, I enjoyed the Valor. I would recommend it. Less
