This was mine and my fiance's first cruise and I absolutely loved it. The food was great everywhere we ate on the ship, the shows were pretty good, our interior bottom of the line stateroom was bigger and nicer than expected and Carnival just did a good job overall.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The dining room meals were always excellent. The servers were fantastic. We did my time dining and that worked well but it did get a little boring to just eat the two of us every night. The buffet food was good (deli was great!) but the lines did get very long at times.


5 out of 5
The comedy shows were our favorite, we tried to see every comedian at least once. The game shows were good too but we werent a fan of the broadway type shows.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
There were a few waiters that we would see over and over and they would always stop to chat and smile. Room steward was great. Did not meet one unpleasant worker.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Easy layout, clean, decor was a little odd (american theme with orange) but it was still very cute.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Interior stateroom - just did the guarantee price and we were pleasantly surprised. Room was nice, bed was pretty comfy, nice closet space, small shower though.

Pros: Food was excellent, comedy shows were hilarious!

Cons: Crowded at times

Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!
