Verified Review
8 Night Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 18, 2012
Ship: Carnival Valor
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

The ship was well maintained and presented a friendly environment for relaxation. Since we had previously been on 2 sister ships, the layout was very familiar.
One of the changes that we did not care for was the late dining also having a late show-time. We choose the later dining time based on past cruise experiences because of the main show preceeding dinner.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We did not choose free-style dining but realize now that 6:15 is too early and 8:15 a little too late, so next time we will choose the any-time dining.


5 out of 5
We only attended the main shows and found them to be innovative, engaging, and fun.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our room stewards and table waiters were always accomodating, friendly, and professional.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Even though we choose an inside cabin and not the luxury aspect of a stateroom, we found the room to meet our needs.

Pros: *Itinerary *Ambiance *Chocolate Buffet at noon rather than midnight *Staff *Entertainment *Ease of Boarding and Departure

Cons: *Too short of times at ports *Saved chairs at the pool with towels for many, many hours was not monitored, Too many pictures -- keep cost of purchasing photos down by not having as many photos taken *The programs available - ex. pilates and yoga incurring an additional charge seemed unnecessary

Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!
