Ship Facts: Carnival Valor Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Valor Deck Plans
Another great Carnival cruise!

This was my 7th cruise on Carnival.

Embarkation: We arrived to the port around 3:45 and were on board and eating by 4:30. We did not purchase the FTTF option. As happy as I was about getting on board swiftly, our luggage did not arrive to our room until 6:30, which was the latest I have ever received my luggage. Muster drill at 9:30 (the smoothness of this is in direct proportion to how many drunk people are in attendance).

We were in 1445, Aft cabin. When we pulled into port, the side thrusters made A LOT of noise. It didn't bother any of us as it served as a nice wake up call, but I am sure there are people out there that would complain. The size of the room was on par with many of Carnival's OV rooms. Plenty of storage.

Sea Day: Behind the Fun Tour. ( It cost $95pp and as soon as we boarded the ship we went to the shore excursions desk to book this). It was about 3 hours long. We saw the Bridge, engine control room, galley, some of the crew quarters and the bow of the ship. We received 2 complimentary photos, one with the captain at the bridge and another of our group on the bow of the ship. We also received a backpack with a hat, a rubber bracelet and a lanyard. Overall it was a really neat experience.

Disembarkation: We had a 3:45pm flight. We were assigned the last zone to get off the ship and were allowed to get off at 11:30am. By that time there were very few bags left so it was a breeze finding our bags and getting through Customs.
