Our voyage on the VALOR
This was our first cruise in several years and our very first cruise with Carnival. We really enjoyed our trip! Here are a few specifics:
Ship- The ship was clean, beautifully decorated and easy to navigate. We were in a room with a balcony and were suprised by the amount of room. We'll never cruise without a balcony. Breakfast there in the morning and sunsets in the evening were spectacular.
Food- Dinner was fantastic with excellent choices. We purchased the least expensive wine package and were suprised by the quality. We only had two days sea but weren't terribly impressed by the breakfast or lunch buffet, but really enjoyed the sushi and fish and chips options.
Entertainment- The comedians were pretty good, the other entertainment was marginal. The last couple of nights we decided to sit on the deck and listen to music which we enjoyed far more than the shows.
Service- The service was excellent. The entertainment staff was great, the cruise More director was approachable and informative and the entire staff went out of their way. I've heard less than favorable reviews of the Carnival staff, but if our experience was nothing but positive. Less

Cabin review: Carnival Valor Balcony Upper 6267
Great location right in the middle of the ship. No balconies below us which was nice. Very spacious.
Port and Shore Excursions
We are both pretty athletic and thought there would be quite a hike but the hike was only about 10-15 minutes and was very easy. Our only complaint was that there wasn't more ziplines or repels. This was a great excursion and the guides and tour company were fabulous!
Good but could have been bette...
