7 Night Exotic Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 10, 2011
Ship: Carnival Valor
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Lack of food at odd hours. Food in general felt and tasted like cafeteria food. Room concierge kept just walking in at odd privacy. Hurry up n wait in line was the motto of the cruise and heard other passengers complain about all the waiting. Entertainment was ok...not enough going on so seating was impossible unless u went an hour early. Casino has tight slots. No one was ever in the clubs or bars. Activities on the boat were fun. Port shops are all the same and was disappointing for shopping. Staff was not overly friendly. Room was good...get a balcony.

People ran after us wanting to braid our hair, it was rather annoying. Got swindled and bought something that was restricted off the ship.
Don't Miss: Nothing ship tenders 20 mins...stay on the boat
