Here’s three tips to make the most of your time on the Carnival Valor:
1. Have a drink at the steakhouse bar. Eating at the steakhouse incurs an extra charge because it's a specialty restaurant. However, the bar is available to all guests. This is an especially good deal if you have the drinks package because the steakhouse bar has wines that are not available at any other bar. I especially enjoyed a delicious $19 glass of 19 rose champagne each night before dinner.
2. Take advantage of the lounge chairs on the Deck 4 deck. The pool can get pretty crowded on Sea Day. So if you're looking for a quiet ocean view chaise lounger, head down the deck 4.
3. Blue Iguana Cantina for breakfast. This is my favorite breakfast on any cruise ship I've ever been on. The huevos rancheros or breakfast burritos are delicious. Be sure to try the watermelon and jicama salsa. Trust me.
