Birthday Celebration Cruise

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

Best for me was the attention of the Washington Dinning Room ( Suwedarma, Andi and Muarif. House keeping (Mr. Pisit) and the waiters all over the ship. My husband and I was granted with (2) $50.00 Spa gift cards but because we were at Curacao that day we did not notice until the next day it had expired on the 20th. They could not honor me with another date. 😕😥

Valor

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

We love to cruise however we were a little disappointed in this ship. Our fridge was broken and took 2 days to get replaced. Our speaker in our room wasn't working correctly. The women's steam room was broken 7 of the 8 days. The mini golf course needs repairs. The entertainment was good but only 2 shows on an 8 day cruise. Overall it was a good cruise but everything should be in good working condition before each sailing.

Perfect get away

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

the ports were all beautiful. The entertainment and staff was amazing! We loved our trip! We didn't book any excursions through the cruise line because the reviews weren't that great. Once we got to a port there were a bunch of locals offering snorkeling, beach trips, zip lines ect at much better prices. Other than that carnival was awesome to cruise with!

Great Trip!

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

We always enjoy our cruises on Carnival and this one was no exception. However, the Valor, being an older ship could use a little more detailed cleaning. I noticed the stainless steel sheet metal (used extensively) needs to be cleaned using more than just a wipe down. scouring pads or heavier. the Glass windows surrounding the dining and pool areas need a heavy cleaning. The window framing in same area needs some degreaser used, as well as some of the tables. When the light hits it just right you can see the buildup and rings from cups. The staff as always was great! our room steward, Wayan, was super! The food was very good especially in the dining rooms. Our wait staff, Nengah, I Made, and Arial were terrific! We enjoyed the ports of call and the on ship entertainment was very good too!  Overall we had another very memorable trip on a Carnival Fun Ship!Happy

Excellent trip

Thoroughly enjoyed Curacao and Aruba for the first time.  City and beach tours in each location offered great experiences. Dining room wait staff Dipendra, Ida Ketut and Marielle provided excellent service.

It was my kids first cruise and Mr T and Oana made this an experience of a lifetime for them. We did wish the taco or burger area was open longer. Overall the ship was very clean and i was impressed.

Not what it used to be

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

My cruise overall was good because we made it that way. If you can't enjoy a cruise something is wrong. I was disappointed in Carnival many times though. I have been with Carnival many times before and it was fine. I'll give some examples of the shortcomings. My security was in question a few times on this cruise and it  NEVER had been before. We had 2 Medical Emergencies which is fine but there was something suspicious about that too. Buffet food was never hot.....Warm? Not really. Up charges in the dining rooms. Not much food available if you didn't eat in the dining rooms in the evenings. Lousy cruise directors. Now some positives..... Good ports of call. Good breakfasts. Good stateroom and service. Guys Burgers is wonderful. Good embarkation and debarkation. I guess the biggest concern for me was our safety

OK But

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

The ship's staff were very attentive, especially the stateroom and dining room staff. Food was OK, I've had better aboard other ships. Ports were OK, but Western Caribbean is probably better. Entertainment was marginal.

The Bahamas

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

Overall, the trip was fun.  My family enjoyed themselves during the sea days and ports of call.  We had first time cruisers in our party and they enjoyed the many things to do during the trip.  My immediate family has cruised before and if I had anything to comment on negatively, it would be the lack of announcements onboard.  Previous cruises the cruise staff did not leave you questioning or in doubt about anything.  This announcer didn't even let you know that we had arrived at our destinations,  things going on within the ship and just overall general information that we had become accustomed to on the ship.

Third Mate

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.
