I just want to start off saying WE HAD AN AWESOME TIME on VALOR.
Embarkation: We got to the Port of Miami at around 10:45 took about 20 minutes to park. We walked over with our luggage gave it to a porter and began the embarkation process. it took a total of about 15 minutes until we were on Lido deck eating lunch.
Food: The food in the buffet was very good with a different twist every day. The food in the Lincoln dining room was exceptional every night. We had late seating so we were usually quite hungry by dinner time. WE never made it to Scarletts but heared from other guests that it was worth the extra money. Maybe we'll try it next time. The pizza was great and I couldn't get enough ice cream.
Entertainment: Chris Jefferson our cruise director and his staff were terrific. They all went out of there way to make us feel at home. This was Chris's final cruise on Valor he will be going to conquest next. The shows were pretty good. We had 2 comedians on this cruise who were extremely funny and kept us laughing the whole time. Later in the week we had a hypnotist who had everyone in the crowd in stitches.
The Ship: The Valor is a beautiful and well maintained ship. Every day the crew could be seen doing some sort of cleaning or maintenance on the ship. As far as decor it definately is an American theme but its not to over bearing. As far as Im concerned it really brings out the spirit and pride of being an American. From the pictures and statues of our founding fathers to the mural in Rosies it really makes you proud to be an American. Our cabin was a category 4A inside which was really quite roomy and very comfortable.
The Valor is a Beautiful Ship and would sail her again. We were extremely happy with our choice of the Valor and would recommend her to anyone.
