Valor still good, but sliding
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation was great, we were on board within an hour of getting to the port. Staff at the port were all knowledgable and friendly.
The cruise director-Big Sexy-was not annoying. He did the morning announcement and the afternoon one. It was nice that he was not on the PA system all day telling us about this sale and that sale.
The food in the MDR was yummy! I had something different every night and I was never More disappointed. My nehpew-age 26- was disappointed one night with his flat iron steak. And of course the chocolate melting cake was top notch. We had a birthday-a 12 yo-on our trip. The MDR staff were great helping us with table decorations, delivering the cake, singing to her, and they brought her some funny shades and made ears with a napkin. They made her birthday dinner!
The rooms we had, 2 balconies and one oceanview, were all very nice. The stewards did an excellent job taking care of us, remembering all our names, leaving extra chocolates, ice constantly, and we asked to have extra sheets left so we could make up the couch for the bday girl to spend the night with us, and we came back and they had made it up for us.
the comedians were hit or miss, one night was riot and the next night they had changed out comedians and it was pretty lame. did not see many live bands, only on Lido and in the Turquiose bar and the lounge in the hall by the casino. The rest were DJs, or the piano bar.
Wherever we went, we saw staff cleaning everything from railings, to drapes, to elevators, they really want a clean ship! which is nice.
I did book a private party for CC Roll Call and they did a great job with that!
Debarking was smooth. I was not aware they had changed it so that if you had anything larger than an airline carry on, you could not do self assist debarkation.
We booked our shuttle with SAS and he was great. Within 5 minutes of calling him after customs, he was at the curb waiting for us. Less
Cabin review: 8A6288 Balcony
6288-I was concerned having a bar below us. Those concerns were not realized, we never heard a thing. We had people in our group next door in 6292 and we asked Oscar, the steward to open the balcony up so we could share a big one, and he did it that first day. It was great. The rooms were clean and comfy.Read All Balcony (8A) Reviews >>
