I had a fantastic time!!!

I would highly recommend taking this cruise. At first I thought that 7 days would be too long, but all  of the fun things that you can do on the ship was simply put, Aaamazing....They have the comedy shows, movie night outside, the live shows, which by the way excellent. It is like you are watching a Broadway Show. Then you can eat, eat, eat, and eat some more!!! The crew were very pleasant and helpful with any little need that may arise. I had went on my very first cruise on the Carnival Valor and I was not disappointed in the least. I would definitely do it again on the Valor. The hospitality was just phenomenal.  My family and I had went during the last week of August and the weather was just about perfect. I have nothing bad to say about this cruise because we ALL had a great time. To Felipe, you were fantastic!!! Missing my cruise already.... Now I am looking forward to going on another one.....

AWFUL

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date: Aug 10, 2014

FOODS NASTY AND DESERTS TASTE LIKE CHINES DESERTS ALMOST NO SUGAR ON THEM. AND THE THING ABOUT HAVING 4000 PEOPLE STANDING ON THE DECK FOR OVER A HALF HOUR HAS NO ACTUAL WORD TO DESCRIBE IT. ALL  I CAN SAY THAT WAS REALLY HORRIBLE AND BEYOND REPROACH. THE SHOWS WERE NOT TOO GOOD EITHER. THE ONLY THINGS I ENJOYED IN THIS WHOLE DEBACLE WAS THE GYMN AND THE LIVE BAND ON PROMENADE DECK AND THE COMEDY SHOWS WERE PRETTY GOOD I MUST SAY THAT GUY AL ROMERO WAS HILARIOUS  . SO AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED I WILL NEVER CRUISE WITH CARNIVAL VALOR AGAIN. CARNIVAL PARADISE WAS MUCH, MUCH BETTER. MAYBE YOU GUYS SHOULD LEARN SOMETHING FROM THEM. THEY WERE BETTER ORGANIZED , MORE METICULOUS AND THE FOODS WERE MUCH BETTER.

THANK YOU

Second time and still a good cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date: Aug 31, 2014

This was our second time going on this cruise. It was flawless just as it was the first time we went on this cruise. The wait staff was great. The ports were great. Great value with only one day at sea. First time going to the steakhouse on board and it was amazing. Casino staff remembered me from last time and they were good. The Carnival shows are very dated and need to be given a face-lift

Eastern Caribbean aboard the Carnival Valor

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date: Sep 07, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed the ports of call of this ship. The ship was decorated according to it's name, but the décor did not really appeal to me. The biggest complaint I have with this ship was the food service on the Lido deck. The pizza was never ready. You ALWAYS had to wait. The buffet bar always seem to close just after we came back on the ship from our excursions making the choice of food slim until the dining areas opened....we had late dining 8:15.....We are not hard to please people. This was our 6th cruise and have been more impressed with other ships.....

You may wish to try anytime dining. I like to watch the sunset, and it would allow me to do that. Also take the time to explore the ship and all it has to offer.

If you are into soft drinks get the unlimited soft drink card. Do the steakhouse, allow it cost extra $35/person its worth every penny.
