Carnival Valor
7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 16, 2006
Ship: Carnival Valor
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 11 years ago
The ship was big and clean. The staff was polite but were not wery helpful. Several times we asked staff questions and they did not know the answer. Ship security was poor. They let kids get out of control. REMEMBER, the teenagers don't pay for the cruise, the adults do. I saw elderly couples afraid at times. The ship was easy to get around and had something for everyone.

We just loved the old island atmosphere. People were friendly and everything was cheap for first quality products.

Excellent island and had a lot to do. I bought a beautiful diamond ring for my wife as we were celebrating our 32 wedding anniversary.

Pros: The ship was new and first class. The entertainment was great.

Cons: Too many kids, teenagers. lack of security as we witnessed teen fights twice. They were alowed to roam the ship and were rude. They had no curfew and they were up at all hours of the night. Anyone under 18 should not be allowed in the adult area after 11 PM.
