A great cruise.

Sail Date: March 01, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was very clean, and kept that way. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was super easy getting off the ship when at ports. The layout was great. It had a very nice 'over 21 only' area with it's own cabanas, hammocks, and hot tubs, and on two levels. An awesome selection of entertainment, bars and night clubs, and our 10 year old grandson had a wonderful time with the camp carnival people and activities.

Pros: The layout of the ship made it easy to locate different areas.

Cons: The safety drill at embarkation was very crowded and hot.

Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
I had ordered a birthday cake for dessert for our grandson, and the cake was awesome as was the presentation and singing of happy birthday during one of our formal dining meals.
Cabin / Stateroom
I had chosen a ocean view on the main level (2). It was also close to the atrium elevators which made it easy to get to different levels. The room was very quiet at night, and virtually no ship movement could be felt.
