everyone and everything on this ship was awesome. Begin with the room attendant, dinning room staff, entertainment staff. Love that we has a latin band onboard the ship.

We had a relaxing time

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date: May 08, 2015

We enjoyed the cruise but not as much as we would have liked due to health issues. Due to being on a gluten free, dairy free, yeast free diet the food, although they tried, was unpalatable. We were told that Carnival was used to many people being gluten intolerant and that the dining room could accomadate. But I was expecting to have a choice of great gluten/dairy/yeast free desserts that they were already accustomed to making. This wasn't the case. I had sorbet every night until they came up with a dairy free creme brulee' then I had that the rest of the nights except when they forgot to make it. 

We would have liked more daytime entertainment, as the nighttime shows were usually pretty late. My husband spent most the time at the pool, which he enjoys, and I spent a lot of time in the cabin, unfortunately.

Carnival cruises are very nice, all the staff are exceptionally friendly and everything is exceptionally clean.

I mostly enjoyed getting to know our table companions and the formal nights.

GOOD OVERALL BUT NEEDS IMPROVEMENT

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date: May 03, 2015

The Cruise was good, overall. The entertainment wasn't great, The staff was very courteous. The food overall was bad. We went to a nice dinner every night except the first night, because we didn't know about it. On the last day we realized the restaurant was open for breakfast and lunch for sit down dining, instead of the not so good buffet food, but the cruise was over, so we were not able to take advantage of that. That is the biggest complaint I have--- there was no information anywhere regarding this.

If it was not for the rain

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date: May 03, 2015

Yes it rained and the one spot even the captain said it was bad , but you could go to shore if you wanted but warned that the sea was rough . But eh ship was real nice and the food so good. The show was wonderful and I had a good time but with the weather and all could not enjoy a movie on the deck. To bad for I was looking forward to doing so . Kind of a cool breeze but it was a great trip with only a few things going wrong but when they did not do the spots in order they said it would go you know the weather did not go as you would have liked , But McGyver that helped me set the cruise up was a doll, and thank you again .

clean, fun---RECOMMEND THIS CRUISE!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date: May 03, 2015

Big SmileThe cruise was awesome! Weather was the only thing I wish was better but you can't change that. Ship was clean, and run in a tight, orderly fashion. Food was great, the steak in the main dinning room wasn't anything fantastic but everything else was great. Comedy shows were awesome, better get there early though as they were packed every night. wish they would do them in ivanhoe theatre so more people can go. This was our first cruise and we loved it! would book again.

carnival Valor

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date: Apr 25, 2015

Although we love to cruise, our recent Carnival Valor cruise was not one of our favorites.   The best part of this cruise was we were with our kids and grandkids.  The dining room service left something to be desired.  Very slow, and each night someone at are table did not get something they had ordered.  The meals were nothing to brag about.  Entertainment was either too much at once, or nothing at all.  The highlight for food on this cruise was the grill Iin The back of the ship.  Roadies restaurant.  Best hamburgers at sea.   Our room steward was always very attentive to us.  Made our cruise enjoyable.  I will not recommend this ship to anyone looking for a Carnival cruise.  We are Platinum level with Carnival, so this was not our first Carnival cruise.  We have cruised NCL as well as RCCL.  Carnival has really gone down hill in the recent years.

Disappointing........................

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date: Apr 25, 2015

The first 3 days we had no air.  They were saying it was at 71 to 74 degrees,  Not a chance was it working.  The first day realized that there was mold in the shower wall.  All they did was clean it with Bleach.  Which it made it hard to breath.   They said it was re calked it wasn't. Because there were still spots.  Really not sure if I will  book again.   I want too.  but not sure..

A nice cruise at a reasonable price.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date: Apr 17, 2015

 

All cruise lines are cutting back on some of the niceties, but the food was good and the staff friendly and helpful. We chose this sail just for the itinerary, and the islands en route did not disappoint. What a delightful change after the cold, miserable winter in the Northeast. Aruba was fun, but Bonaire (especially the glass bottom boat tour) was excellent, and Grand Turk had phenomenal beaches. Having a few days sail before Aruba and a one day sail before leaving the ship is very relaxing as well. Our only suggestions is not to over air condition the public spaces and reduce the volume on all the shows and presentations. We know you have a great audio system, but turn down the amp. Leaving an event with ears ringing detracts from the fantastic shows you present.

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.

Be sure to book shore excursions early or you won't get them.
