January 2016 - Carnival Valor to Caribbean - Western
Great itinerary. Good value. Time for ship refurbishment. Food could show some improvement. It is a complex operation and language differences make it difficult to ensure high quality service 24 hrs. per day. Embarkation process is great until you board the ship. Dramatic improvements could be made to avoid the chaos by directing and taking passengers to wait in theater or dining room areas where announcements will follow as to room availability say either by room category or deck number.
