Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!

Lots to do and plenty of fun was had by all!
Ship Quality
Impressive vessel with all of the comforts of home* or a 4-star hotel! *Except ironing boards in the room, which could be a pain around dinner time when an entire floor needed to use the 1 iron and tiny ironing board available in the shared laundry room.
Food and Dining
Food was very good, and there were plenty of options. The "supper club" is amazing... you can enjoy a 5-star ($200 +) dinner for 2, for only $60, and it's worth every dime!
Cabin / Stateroom
Rooms were very typical for a ship. Nice bedding and pillows were provided. Again, only common complaint was lack of ironing facilities in the rooms.
Service and Staff
Staff were overall excellent! Wait-staff are 100% committed to our happiness, and that a fun time is had by all while dining. Entertainment staff are so bubbly that you must have fun, even if you are only observing (not actively participating in) a specific event. Housekeeping were always friendly and the rooms were cleaned twice every day and no details were unmissed at any time.
