Buffet, dining and steak house were all fantastic. Armondo made dining fun.

Again who needs the ports when there is so much to do on board.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
Our 2 boys loved the activities and my wife and I felt comfortable leaving them with your staff.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Although most of the crew were a bit too formal, Armondo and Umporn helped to make the trip. Hats Off !! They spend 6 or more months on the ship with no family, they need to let their guard down a bit.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Like new and its amazing how staff continues to clean

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
How do they do it? Does Umporn ever sleep? How does he remember everyones names. Now thats incredible. Bathroom was a bit tiny but you have to remember your on a ship.
5 out of 5
5 out of 5
The butterfly area was a bit weak but time spent by the pool area made the butterfly trip worth it. What a beautiful pool area in the middle of no where.

Pros: If I have to pick one, I would say the kids camp was fun for our 5 & 7 year old boys

Cons: Having to pay for soda and seeing empty beer bottles in stairways

Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!
