6 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 18, 2011
Ship: Carnival Valor
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago
Terrible. Ugly, cheap, mismatched decor usually having little or no relevance to the "hero" theme. Our half of the ship constantly smelled like rotten food/fish. The shows were generally terrible with a few exceptions. The food was anywhere from disgusting to just OK. The crew members were rude and all were foreign with very poor english. Constantly trying to sell you jewelry or anything else they could make a dime off of. Things we were told would be included were usually NOT and were very expensive. Other "entertainment" during dinner for example was tacky. WAAAAY too many unsupervised children. Organization of getting on and off of the ship was a huge headache... I could go on for hours...
