Ship Facts: Carnival Valor Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Valor Deck Plans
Carnival Valor, Exotic Western Itinerary
We booked a cruise to celebrate my roommate's college graduation. Sailed on the Valor, from Miami, on September 18. Seven-day Exotic Western itinerary, with ports of call in Grand Cayman, Isla Roatan, Belize City and Cozumel.

We had a balcony cabin on deck 8 (#8263). Perfect location, near the forward elevators, with no traffic noise. Met an amazing group of young professionals at our dinner table: Sean, Josh, Maria, Heather, Brad and Allen. Had a great time with them all week long. Definitely upped the fun factor!

All of the entertainment was top-notch. The singers (Nick and Bree) and the dancers were some of the best I've seen and the two production shows were far superior to some of the other Carnival options.

Our room steward was apparently a ninja....he could turn our room over while we were at breakfast. Even though we barely saw him, he always seemed to know right when to come by.

The dining room staff was also friendly and attentive. Couldn't have asked for much more. There was a guest at the next table who was "difficult" to say the least, so watching the staff deal with her each night was quite entertaining.

The only "negative" comment for the entire experience is that only truly HOT meal we had in the Washington Dining Room was the Bacon Mac 'n' Cheese on the final evening (which was incredible). Otherwise the food was just above room temperature.

We had a terrific cruise and would definitely sail on the Valor again. Carnival definitely exceeded Greg's expectations on his first cruise and met mine for my sixth. Thumbs up!!
