Great, great trip

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date:

This cruise to the Western Caribbean was actually our second time aboard the Carnival Valor. We did the Southern Caribbean on the Valor a year ago. The same superb service reigned again this summer. I am so impressed at how friendly and helpful the crew is on this ship. There was always plenty of fun activities to take part in or one could do nothing but laze in the sun if they so chose to do so.  I highly recommend this ship and this cruise. My wife and I are particularly interested in the Mayan civilization so our shore excursions were directed pretty much at visiting Mayan ruins. All in all, the cruise was certainly worth it and I would recommend it to anyone. And kudos to the staff of the Carnival Valor!!!!!!

Ship is ok has character. Employees are friendly. Food was horrible.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date:

This was our first Carnival cruise and we were so looking forward to it. Many friends recommended the company due to their outstanding kitchen.

What a disappointment!!! Not a single day was the food the way it should be. Breakfast: cold pancakes, only toast no normal bread, waffles-cold.

scrambled eggs scrambled like  mashed potatoes.

Menu restaurant- choices limited taste bland over or under cooked food, bread was burned every single day. Breaded escargots..really? lava cake- we were eating raw dough. One day the dessert menu was so bad I didn't even pick anything and settled for a cup of coffee. Overall  a 0 for your kitchen

Fair Experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date:

If you love to be hassled by photographers and eat mediocre food this trip is for you! The dining room chef has selected perfectly tasteless beef and manages to take all flavor out of the lamb. The baked chicken was perfectly dried out at the early dinning!

There was not very many hand sanitizers

The food in Rosie's was good. It was better to eat in the cafeteria than the main dining room.

Cruise 2015

Nice Trip, Vacation and Getaway!! The staff was great. Went with a friend and we enjoyed time away from home. We were so relaxed with the pool, Jacuzzi, waterslides, food was tasty (always there was something to eat) and naps in between were an added bonus.

Overall the cruise was nice. However, on our last excursion, Casta Maya, Marie had a fall on the Segway and broke her wrist. We had two more days to go and as you can imagine this spoiled the trip.. But Carnival's crew was all very very nice..

Family Fun in the Sun

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date:

The Carnival Valor was a very clean and nice ship. I was celebrating my 50th Birthday on this cruise and the fun memories made with family was priceless. The staff was very pleasant as well. The entertainment on the cruise was not as good as I have experienced on other Carnival cruises. The entertainment was mostly the same everyday. The biggest problem I had was the people in the room beside of us sneaking marijuana on the ship and smoking it day and night on the balcony. I had my 8yr old granddaughter with us and we couldn't get on the balcony and enjoy it for the illegal drugs being utilized. I did report it but the people ignored their warning which was NO SMOKING in the rooms or on the balconies. I was furious about the people next door not obeying rules and having respect for those that are minor and allergic to smoke period.

We were lucky and had great weather. The dining service and staff were exceptional. We would like to especially acknowledge Zolton, Luis and Jarett for their service.

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.

The comedy shows were a lot of fun, only wish they could sit more guests. We missed a comedian I really wanted to see due to lack of available seating.
