April 2015 - Carnival Valor to Caribbean - Southern
We liked the ports on this cruise but wished there would have been one more stop for the price and length of the cruise. It was a smelly ship for some reason. Our balcony staterooms would smell like cigarette or cigar smoke intermittenly, the pool area had wafts of sewage smell and our dining room smelled like sour milk at the entry. When the main pool started shooting brown stuff out of the jets and they had to evacuate I did not want my family back in it the rest of the cruise.
This was our least favorite out of 5 cruises our family has taken. We were not able to get the flexible dining time so our 8:15 dinner cut into the entertainiment time. The food in the dining room was not as good as our last Carnival cruise and they cut out being able to order espresso with breakfast in the dining room (you have to pay extra now).
