Carnival Valor Cruise Review by spiritweevil: Great time, even without the ports we booked
Overall Member Rating
Great time, even without the ports we booked
Destination: Western Caribbean
My husband and I had a great time on the Valor. We were supposed to have 4 ports of call: Grand Cayman, Belize, Cozumel and Roatan; however there was this little thing called hurricane Paula that changed our plans. We made it to Grand Cayman but were rerouted after that. Ended up in Ocho Rios and Nassau instead.
We really enjoyed our time on the ship. The food was awesome. A lot of people said it was not comparable to the food on Royal Caribbean, but we found it to be the opposite. We had some really stand out meals in the dining room and at the buffet. There was always something going on somewhere. Saw some really funny things while lounging at the pool and saw some great shows in the theatre. The entertainment staff was great. The comedians were hilarious.
The ship was a little hard to navigate, like others have said, but after a couple days we had it down. Also this was an older ship than what we went on last time and it was showing some age, may need some More refurbishment.
Over all we loved it and have no complaints. Still want to go to the ports we missed. Will just have to go again, but maybe not during hurricane season. Less

Cabin review: 4J7344 Interior with Picture Window (obstructed views)
Our cabin was fine. We heard people in the hall every once in awhile, but other than that it was quiet. Had a lot of closet space. Bed was comfortable.Read All Interior with Picture Window (obstructed views) (4J) Reviews >>
