Sail Date: Nov 2021
Cabin: Porthole

My wife and I planned this about a month ago after getting a deal for $100 per person (port hole window cabin) w/ $100 per person OBC. Our only expenses were the drink package, some specialty food, and a couples massage. Such a good deal we couldn't pass it up.

This was the Valors 2nd or 3rd cruise since coming back after covid, but the ship was running flawlessly. We didn't have a single bad meal (most of which were in the main dining room,) but we did avoid the buffet more than usual. Drinks were excellent and the service was great. The ship was around 65% capacity which meant little wait for anything. Yourtime dining, which is done on the app now, never had more than a 3 minute wait. The menus, sign up, and basically everything on the app is much better than the prior system of paper or manual signups to eat.

The only complaint I have was our room, 2221, was very noisy. There was mechanical clunks around 10pm to 1am sounding from the front of the ship, but other than that it was a fine room. We usually have balconies, but w/ the deal we were happy with the room.
