A Sad Reflexion of a cruise

Sail Date: October 19, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

I did not like the ship, the lack of large enough swimming pools for guests made the areas feel very crowded and we did not swim in them or wish to sit around them.
I also felt there were areas that need improvement on cleanlines.
I was also very un-happy that public areas were not smoke free, also that guests did smoke in their cabins although we understood this was not acceptable.

Pros: Meeting a couple of nice people

Cons: The lack of guest care

Recommends Carnival Valor? No.

Service and Staff
In general the staff were sullen and not openly willing to assist. There were one or two who were pleasant but no one who stood out.
Cabin / Stateroom
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
The dining rooms seriously needs some improvement both in standard of food and quality of staff.

The Island is not one we would want to return to from choice. The swimming was enjoyable, but the actual island is very poorly maintained and does not encourage returning.

We did visit Magens Bay to swim and thoroughly enjoyed this, it was not built up and felt very relaxing. However, the shopping was not good, mostly jewelery shops.
