Carnival has a lot to learn!
Carnival Valor Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Ship: Carnival Valor
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple

Review SummaryIn addition to standing in many lines during embarkation and disembarkation, the process to get off the ship in St. Thomas was yet another frustration. The daily paper stated that saving deck chairs was not allowed; however, hundreds of them remained empty all day with a "saving" towel or book. This was our 9th cruise, but our first with Carnival. They have a lot to learn from other lines.

Pros: Our cabin steward and wait staff were excellent.
Cons: The embarkation and the disembarkation process was unacceptable. We waited hours in line to get on the ship and then waited again to get off. I kept having thoughts of Ellis Island as we proceeded slowly in a terrible, poorly ventilated, overcrowded building.
