August 2016 - Carnival Valor to Caribbean - Southern
My husband and I had not cruised in 10 years and We had a great time. The ship is older (or at least seems that way) but it's kept very clean and all things are functional. They do a great job at keeping entertainment going for all ages and all types of fun from bars, clubs, to movies, and lounging with music.
The only thing that left something to be desired was the food. At some points we felt we were eating hospital food with 0 seasoning or taste. Or on the other spectrum, one evening the accompanying mushrooms with my meal were so salty even my husband, who likes salty things, couldn't swallow it. We don't expect a 5 star rated restaurant BUT in all honesty, chicken fingers in a fast food restaurant have more taste.
