Awesome Family Vacation on the Valor
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation- This was our fourth cruise and the second with Carnival. I will say embarkation was the worst ever we processed thru the first line, and security,(Be sure to get a number) and more long lines got our sail and sign cards. Just to be told to wait for our number to be called to board the ship, an hour later we boarded the ship.
Ship- The Valor is a Beautiful ship, Very patriotic in theme. Very clean crew were cleaning all the time. Enjoyed the pool deck and the curly slide. Nice Casino & Promenade, Theater,Stores & Public area very pretty.
Cabin#2356- Our cabin was very nice, spacious with plenty of storage. Our steward did a great job he kept our room very clean, ice bucket filled and beds turned down with towel animals and chocolate every night. The down side to this room is we must have been close to large water pipes. All night long we could hear lots of water draining so not much sleep on this trip.
Buffet- We enjoyed early breakfast More in the buffet on Island days when we had to get an early start. The food was very tasty and warm, and a nice variety to. Loved the fresh omelette. During the week we ate a few lunches Salads, fruit, burgers, fries, nachos, chicken tenders, pizza and a dinner at Rosie's buffet. always plenty to choose from and very good food. And the cheesecake YUMMMM!
Main Dining-Table #333- Our food was amazing all week long plenty of choices. My hubby really ate all kinds of seafood all week, and liked it all. I enjoyed fruit soups, salads, steak, chicken, pasta and the warm chocolate melting cake w/ice cream is devine! Even our teenage daughter tried new things and liked them. Our waiters (Kittipong & Iputu) were the best, by the second day they new our favorite breads and beverages. Kept our glasses full and always happy to get anything else we needed or second helpings if requested.
Entertainment- Way to go Carnival, we really LOVED the new family friendly comedy in the Eagles lounge/Punchliner comedy club. The comedians were hilarious, especially Percy Crews loved him. Show time in the Ivanhoe theater was always entertaining. Loved the MUTS, caught a couple good movies out on the pool deck.
Disembarkation- Was pretty easy we waited in the Theater until they called our number and we were off the ship by 9:15. Less

Cabin review: 6C2356 Ocean View
Cabin # 2356- Very nice stateroom plenty of storage, and space even for three people. Didn't like the fact we could hear large amounts of water gushing/ running all night long and some times in the day time. Just outside the wall very hard to sleep in this cabin.Read All Ocean View (6C) Reviews >>
