Great Job Carnival Valor: Carnival Valor Cruise Review by Dave from Barrie
Overall Member Rating
Great Job Carnival Valor
Destination: Western Caribbean
The ports of call were varied from the Cayman's to Roatan,Belize and Cozumel.We decided to use independent tour operators after reading comments from other members on this site.In Rotan we used Victor Boden Tours and took a tour around the island with a very knowledgeable guide.Great guide and great service.Rot an is a very poor island that has tremendous potential and hopefully things will improve for the people living there because of the cruise ships stopping there.We visited Belize 4 years ago on the Glory and we found that Belize City has actually improved.It still has a long way to go but it has improved.
The cruise director Big Tex does and outstanding job with keeping people informed and entertaining people on the ship.My wife and I finally met him personally on day 6 and I thanked him for the wonderful time we had.We appreciated the conversation we had with him .He is a down to earth man that does an excellent job.This man along with the rest of the crew work 12 or more hours a day and you very seldom see a frown from any of the crew.On a previous post near mine a poster made a negative comment about Big Tex's hat and his performance.I say to that get a life and remember you are on vacation.Enjoy yourself. The only complaint I have is with the deck chair huggers who place a towel or a book on a deck chair and leave for 2 or 3 hours depriving a person who needs that chair.The Carnival people could do a better job of watching for that type of abuse.
Other than those nasty deck chair huggers this was an excellent cruise and thank you Carnival.We will be back next year. Less
