Carnival Valor - Western Caribbean
Destination: Western Caribbean
PORTS: We missed Grand Cayman since it was too rough to tender. Carnival credits your sign and sail card $25, which is very nice since they cant control the weather. There was however nothing to do on the ship that day since the weather was nasty and you couldn't lay by the pool. Roatan was our favorite port. Once we got out of the gate we hired a driver (Jose) for the day ($100) and he took us all over. He took us to the best little shops and restaurants. The island is so beautiful and untouched. We loved this port and had the best time shopping, drinking and eating even though it rained all day and was cold. Costa Maya: We book Tequila Beach day for $25 (all you can eat and drink). We met some people from our ship that live local and had a great time talking to them. It was a beautiful place but it got very busy and was very hard to get a drink or food. You had to stalk the waiter and beg him not to forget you. It was kind of a hassle. We walked to the shops (less then 2 blocks) and did some shopping. We got massages on the beach for $20 for 45 min and that was the best. WE really enjoyed this port and the people were very nice. It costs $3 per person for a cab to and from Tequila beach. Belize: We did the cave tubing booked through Carnival-DONT DO IT. It was so unorganized and such a mess. Our guide left us in the cave and we wound up having lunch at some little place in the middle of nowhere, not at Cheers like they tell you. You do need to have something planned to do here. The city is not very safe and you don't want to be there without a plan.
Debarkation: This was a breeze. We signed up for room service the night before and had it in our room by 6:30 am so we could eat before we left. We took our own luggage and with a small wait walked off the ship at 7:30 ish. There was a line in the lobby but it went fast. I recommend getting off the ship as soon as you can to avoid the lines. Don’t wait till they start calling tag colors or you will be there all morning. Customs was a joke we walked right through with a 2 second stop.
