6 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 15, 2012
Ship: Carnival Valor
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago

We didn't have any unresolved issues. But I still don't think I will do a cruise again. Getting on and off the ship was excruciatingly slow. And you just don't get enough time at each destination. On the other hand, I did learn that I don't have any desire to go back to Jamaica. The panhandling in Jamaica was overwhelming.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
I was expecting excellent food but found it to be just average.


3 out of 5
There was always something to do.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
The dining room wait staff and stateroom staff were fantastic. The guest services and shop staff\, not so much.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was very clean. Think of Las Vegas but floating.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The room was clean and kept clean. It didn't have many amenities. The biggest disappointment was a king bed made from two twins.

Pros: The planning was easy

Cons: Too many people\, too little time at each destination\, and hugely long lines.

Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!
