I have just gotten back from my second cruise and I have to say that this was the cruise to be on. I didn't want to leave!
Service was great on this ship. All of the attendants were very kind and courteous and was happy to fulfill all of my husband and my two teenaged girls needs. Our dinner table waiter and waitress were the best I have ever had. Always there for anything we wanted and came with a smile on their face.
The ship was very beautiful. A patriotic theme was presented throughout the whole ship. My family and I had the early dinner seating in the Washington dinning room. The dinning room was done with pink lighting throughout the whole room. It was fun but also elegant.
Night life on the Valor was just as exciting as the ports themselves. My two teenaged girls went to "club 02" every night which is a teen dance club then was ran by the teen cruise director. They had a great time and met very nice kids. My husband and I spent our nights everywhere. we listened to the "one man band" outside of the casino a few times. And everyone in my family enjoyed the shows that were put on. Especially Valor Idol which was performed on the last night. It showed lots of talent on the ship.
The ports were very nice except for our first day in Nassau was a little rushed because we only had until 2pm. But it was beautiful none-the-less. We never had any trouble finding a taxi, they were always willing to take us where we wanted to go. St. Thomas was also a good island with many opportunities to shop. St. Martin was a interesting beach island... they were nude beaches!
Overall I had a wonderful time on the Valor and if I take another cruise I would happily sail with Carnival.
