Loved the Comedy Club!
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
The one thing that I felt needs to be addressed by Carnival is we booked an excursion in Roatan and the vehicle they put us in was not safe. The van was packed to the max and over crowded. Initially the van was three seats across with a small aisle. We were the first in and sat in the back because my husband is 6 feet 6 inches tall. They kept adding people and once every built in seat was taken they added more adults putting jump seats down in the aisle area so we were trapped in the back. It was hard to breathe and we were packed like sardines.The jump seat they put down in front of him hit his knees and they were bruised because at each bump his knees knocked the seat although he tried to turn sideways. I kept thinking there is no way out if we have an accident. Our other excursions we booked privately and we were in vehicles that were safe with seat belts for each person. On the Carnival website they ask you to rate your excursion and they print the reviews. When I mentioned I was concerned about the safety they sent me an email stating they would not print my review which I thought was not fair of the company as safety is a valid concern.
The Entertainment on the ship was exceptional. They had three comedy shows on most evenings - one was for families with kids and the jokes were clean, the other two were 18 and over shows. All of the comedians were a high caliber and as good or better than what we see at Zannies Comedy Club in Chicago.
I have booked another Carnival cruise on Valor for August. I did this because there is one sea day so I won't have to deal with the over crowding but that one day. I am going for the ports which if I had to fly to these islands I would pay much more. I know I won't have to cook and clean and coming from Chicago I can enjoy the snorkeling and diving the locations have to offer. I really hope the food will be a little better but again for what we are paying I can have two Carnival vacations for two people for what I would have paid for one person if I went to an all inclusive or went on a more expensive cruise line. My husband and I love Oceania, Windstar, Regent and Seabourn but they are not in the Caribbean during the summer months. So we know we are at a lower price point and accept the shortcomings of the food and the lines and celebrate the fun we have at the comedy club and on the water slide.At Christmas/New Year when there are more choices in the Caribbean we will likely pay more and relax with more comfort, better food and no lines on more of a luxury vessel.

Cabin review: 6175
This cabin has an adjoining door to the cabin next door. The door is locked but noise transfers easily between the room where the adjoining door is. There were 3 ladies in the cabin next to us and they talked non stop. Because the adjoining door is thin I can tell you every word that was said. The noise kept us up and they were not trying to be noisy it is just the adjoining door is not as good as having a solid wall. On the other side of us was a room with two adults and two children. We never heard a sound from there room because the wall was solid. I would avoid the adjoining doors if possible unless you are parents cruising with children in the room next to you and you want to keep a close eye on them.
Rough seas but great family ho...
