Nice get away

Sail Date: February 01, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

This was our first cruise, it was wonderful to have people wait on us. Most of the staff was exceptional. The entertainment was really good except the magic show in the main theater. This magician is not kid friendly (he treated the kids poorly). The rest of the trip was wonderful and would definitely do it again.

Pros: Exceptional wait staff, very clean, rooms larger than expected, entertainment was great

Cons: pool was smaller then we anticipated, workers in camp (9-11) was rude, conflict with diner and entertainment

Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!

Children's Programs
Our oldest daughter went to camp O2. She enjoyed the camp and made new friends. Our youngest 9, never had a chance to attend camp as the workers seemed rude and the camp was always closed or in a different location.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
The food was amazing and so was our head waiter "IGST NGURAH RIA DINATA". There was always food available (literally all the time).
Cabin / Stateroom
The rooms were nice and very clean. They were up to date and very nice. They were larger than we had expected. Use the safe!
Service and Staff
The room stewards (housekeepers) were very friendly. Everytime you passed one in the hall, they would say hi, or speak with you. They went out of there way to be friendly. This was very nice.
The entertainment was really good. Don't miss the shows.
