Carnival Valor May 2010 cruise

Sail Date: May 09, 2010

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Ship was great. Staff wonderful. Food great. My son (4 yrs) fell ill the first day; sick at Camp Carnival. They sent us to the Medical Center. Nurse checked him out; quarantined us for 24-hours. Steward sanitized our room and my husband and I ate separately a lot due to our son sleeping most of the trip. No fault of the ship; he's a four-year old. However, staff handled very well. Medical Center released him after 24-hours. Ship is large and grand and clean. We'll go on her again as we missed the shows and other entertainment. Food on Lido was just as good as the dining room. Ship was at 100% capacity but the lines moved quickly. Don't miss a movie at the Seaside Theatre. We like the idea that we could just get off the ship and some shopping, etc. was right at port. Had an o/v stateroom with a sofa-bed instaed of pull down bed. Much larger than the Fun Ship cabins.

Pros: Staff and Space of ship and cabin

Our son was only able to enjoy two days at Camp Carnival, but had a blast! I would highly recommend to anyone traveling with kids.
