November 2013 - Carnival Valor to Caribbean - Southern
OK, good to get away, and a good value for the money. Food was OK, but not outstanding. Entertainment not quite as superb as on other cruise lines. Vessel was clean and well-cared for. I appreciated that the water/waitresses didn't hound us mercilessly to buy drinks, as they have on some other cruises. Had a balcony room, that was worth the extra cost. Formal dining room was good, but the every-evening dancing and singing by the waiters in the formal dining room was unnecessary and cheesy.
