Carnival Valor

July 2016 - Carnival Valor to Caribbean - Eastern

Carnival cutbacks!

We have sailed on many Carnival cruises, including 2 European 12 days.  We just returned from the Valor. Our dining room waitstaff were very attentive to our needs.  The food was excellent both in the Washington Dining Room and at the Buffet.  A nice touch was the Brunch menu for our At Sea Days. Drink offerings were either lemonade or iced tea, hot tea, only black tea, or coffee. What was lacking on the ship were activities such as scrap booking, guest speakers, watercolor classes etc.  The dancers and singers at the 3 evening performances were excellent as well as their costumes.  However, the sets were very lacking as compared to what we experience on RCCL and Disney.  The Casinos slots were very, very, very, tight.  Usually they loosen up the last two evenings.  We did not see too many happy slot players. This will probably be our last Carnival cruise as we prefer sailing with Royal Caribbean and of course Disney with our Grandkids.

Oasis of the Seas

September 2013 - Oasis of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

A wonderful experience

We were repeat guests on the Oasis. We could not find anything to complain about. Every meal was presented beautifully and tasted scrumptious. Largest variety of breads onboard. With over 6100 guests that week, we never had to wait in line for a show, check-in, lunch or dinner.....a seamless experience. Every venue is beutiful. We enjoy having a balcony overlooking Central Park, our friends enjoy overlooking the Boardwalk. All the entertainment shows and costumes were top notch. The Staff was very friendly and always their to help. Would highly recommend and looking forward to try the Allure. We have a RCCL TransAtlantic planned next April already.

Pixieduster's Tips

Grand Turk Island - A lovely end to the trip. Very scenic island for relaxing on the beach. There is also a pool off the beach. Umbrellas and chairs were free.
San Juan, Puerto Rico - A very nice city to visit. It is safe if you stay in the area around the ship docking.
Carnival Valor Carnival Valor - Carnival offers a pack of water bottles for $3.99 if ordered precruising. It is a very casual ship as far as dressing. I would not bring a lot of dress up clothing. One outfit would be enough.
Oasis of the Seas Oasis of the Seas - Make your dining and show reservations on line before you board
