Carnival Valor Cruise Review by Bookwizerd

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2016
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Junior Suite

This cruise was so much fun. We chose this cruise because we were taking friends who were cruise virgins. Our rooms were upgraded to Junior Suites and we had the balconies connected for more space.

The only downside was our snorkeling excursions and swim with dolphins were cancelled due to water conditions. We still got to interact with the Dolphins, but not like we had hoped. In Beloze we decided to "rough it" and picked termites off the trees and ate them. Why not? YOLO!

This ship crew were super friendly and very accommodating to my food allergies. We danced with the dinner crew, laughed with the poor piano guy that was sicker than a dog, and enjoyed the comedy shows.

The ship is going into dry dock soon, and definitely needs the updating. I'm looking forward to seeing it's facelift.

Our friends liked cruising so much that we are going on the Vista May 2017

Swimming with Dolphins

Interacted with the Dolphins but the actual snorkel part with them was cancelled. Not sure why. The Dolphins were very active during this excursion and we loved it!

The guys took this excursion and claimed to have a great time. It was wavy but they were in the water and didn't have any issues. Saw fish, shells and even money. Lol
