Review SummaryThe Carnival Valor is a beautiful, spotless and shiny ship. This is our first cruise and we had heard many comments about how small the bathrooms and staterooms are on ships. We had an awesome stateroom that accomodated the four of us and still plenty of room to walk around. The rooms are quiet; the other areas of the ship are easy to get to. The cruise director and staff are very entertaining and funny. We got to meet the captian and he is a very friendly. We enjoyed dining every night, but our first,in the Washington Dining room. We felt we were at a fancy restaurant every night. The buffets at Rosie's Restaurant are clean and well-stocked. There are several pools and hot tubs to soak in, and even a waterslide. The kids played shuffleboard on deck as we walked around on the track. A basketball and volleyball court are on deck, also. Spa Carnival is very state-of-the-art. The locker rooms are very clean. The Ivanhoe theater felt like a real theater. A good view of the stage from almost any seat. Rosie's Restaurant has several buffets set up and many, many foods to choose from. Our younger child enjoyed the endless icecream, too. The Carnival Valor exceeded our expectations!
