Hi. My dh & I are going on Valor for our 3rd total time (him 2x, me 3x). I love Valor, obviously. Its a great ship, has great staff & has never failed to be an enjoyable cruise ship all the way round.
I am truly excited to take my dh to Roatan this time around & take the Victor Bodden tour (google). He will love the zipline experience as much as I did the first time. Are you all first time cruisers? If so, def read the forums about what to pack & what NOT to pack. We travel w/out our children so I can only tell you that many folks have enjoyed the kids programs for their own. I always take a single power strip b/c there are only TWO outlets in the whole cabin. This allows me to charge batteries, groom hair, & plug in a nightlight (a necessity imho). Take a small, collapsible cooler w/ you in your packed luggage & order sandwiches from room service the night before an excursion day. They are free, and you know you won't get any traveller's woes ashore. Ziploc baggies are great for this too. A day pack is helpful to cart all your goodies around in as well. We have a bag we bought 5 years ago on our first cruise that we still use. It's great for outfit changes during the day, water supplies, cameras, & purchases to be carried back onto the ship.
What else can I help you with knowing? I, for one, do take quite a few dresses b/c I choose to dress for dinner every night. I figure, "No kids, just me & him, dinner prepared for us, WHY not?"
