Carnival Valor

October 2015 - Carnival Valor to Caribbean - Eastern

Carnival has really changed and cruising is not as special anymore.

I have taken many cruises most of them on Carnival ( I am now Premier) and am very disappointed in the the changes they have made and the many downgrades  that have been made. Small gifts in the bathroom, chocolates on the turned down bed, small bottles of water on the dresser,( a bottle of water now cost $3.75).  Now all gone.  We did get one small bar of soap.  At one time when people cruised  they were made to feel pampered and special for the  few days that were able to get away.  It is so bare bones and you spend much of your time trying to dodge all the waiters carrying high price drink " specials".  Non drinkers who would just like to sit in the lounge or out front  and listen to music for a while are made to feel uncomfortable when the waiter comes again and again to  ask if you would like a drink.  A

soft drink is very expensive and most people only can drink one.  We have limited our visits to the clubs for this reason and it seems so for many other people.  

Yes, I know prices have gone up for Carnival,  but so has their cruises.  For a couple more dollars per person they could restore some of the small pampering and good will.   Some people have saved and sacrificed for a long time for their trip.  Make it special again.....
