7 Night Exotic Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 01, 2011
Ship: Carnival Valor
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

There were to many people on board, it was extremely crowded and hard to sit down and eat. Also one of our shore excursions was messed up by a local Hondurian working for carnival. Ive done 4 cruises and am dissapointed to say that the food was terrible on this particular cruise. If you got french fries they were an hour old, if you ordered fish at dinner, it was dry.

Food and Dining

Very loud in dining room. The food was only good about 3 out of 7 days.

To find seats at comedy shows you had to show up very early, along with all other activities. Shore excursion instructions were not very good. People should always meet in the theatre befor excursions

Children's Programs

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Everybody that works for carnival is amazing, except for the outsourced local companies in other countries that handle the shore excursions. The only hard thing with the staff on the ship is its hard to comunicate with some due to language and accent differences

The outsourced company working for carnival doing the shore excursions told us the wrong time to meet at location. we were told to come back on Honduran time.... Then missed the excursion

Pros: Comedians

Cons: to many people on board, poor food quality, also shore excursions were screwed up

Recommends Carnival Valor? No.
