Best cruise you can go on

Sail Date: July 2014
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
Personally I have been on the valor 2x and am returning for my third in Aug 17 2014. I think the staff, ship and cruise director is amazing. Those who are with children I highly recommend this route. There is only one sea day and if you are from Boston like me, flights are about $250-400. I flew down a day before and stayed at the Courtyard Marriott Isla Verde. The Valor is a Panama registered ship and is about 1k feet long. it holds close to 5k passengers and 3k crew. The best part of the cruise is Felipe Couto. He runs this paradise ship with fun.

Heres the itinerary:

Day 1. San Juan-depart 10 pm

Day 2:St.Thomas USVI-8 am-5 pm-Magens Bay

Day 3:Sea day=See day-give yourselves the chance to enjoy the ship for a full 24 hours

Day 4:Barbados a 8 am-5 pm-Boatyard is the best beach with anyting you need at one beach....

Day 5:St.Lucia a 8am-5 pm-my least fav port possibly stay on the ship and enjoy the short lines.

Day More 6:St.Kitts a 8am-5 pm-Go to the Marriot!!!!!!

Day 7:St.Martin-a 8am-5 pm-go to Maho Beach right at the foot of princess julianna international airport

Day 8:San Juan-Eat around 7 am-disembark at around 11 the latest this was the best ship activity wise. Those include basketball, volleyball, 3 large pools, 6 large hot tubs, waterslide, mini golf, fitness center, eating, drinking, dancing, shopping, relaxing and king boulevard which is a promenade.

Onboard this ship the staff and crew work very hard to make your cruise onboard the best. The rooms are very clean. The public spaces are amazing and the shows are excellent. I paid about $559 for an aft balcony which is cheap. The room was spotless. The food is probably the best cruiseline food.

Carnival has a amazing kids club called camp carnival. They make sure that the kids have nothing but fun!!!

-once you arrive at Luiz Martin Airport I recommend you get your own taxi.

-Carnival will treat you once you arrive

-wear decient clothes for all dinners and pack a set of formal clothes.

-take lots of pictures

ENJOY!!!! Less
