Reviewed: 8 years ago

Nice ship, service in the Washington Late seating was very good, room stewards were very nice, had to call for a/c servicing 3 times. Children misbehaving was an issue, there was one table of children with only one adult and they really spoiled it for thoes arrould them by throwing food item at each other, spitting sodas, running around in the formal dining rooms when we mentioned to the Maitre'd nothing was done. Also quite time was not enforced children running and playing in the halls at midnight and later.

5 out of 5
Scuba was great but was not impressed with this port, if really need to have a planned ships activity for this port

Pros: Chose this ship for the ports of call, advanced scuba diving excursions were very good

Cons: food needs to be improved and the rules for children need to be enforced

Recommends Carnival Valor? No.
