Pros: Great job with Kids activity.

Recommends Carnival Valor? No.

Ship Quality
layout is the same as other ships we have been on. Cleanliness was not well. No one really cleaned the tables at lunch they just used a dirty napkin. Our room was not set up for us we asked for one bed had two. Their was left over clothes and personal items left in our room. The ac was not cold. They offered us a fan. Not helpfull.
Food and Dining
the food was the same as others. Nothing special. ambiance was same. The staff was not good. Overworked and streched to serve everyone.
Cabin / Stateroom
HOT HOT. AC did not work well. Offered a fan\, not keep the room cool. Glad we had a room 8 doors down\, the casino had loud music everynight .
Service and Staff
Not as good as others. They never got really personal like calling us by our names. Or having coffee with dinner we always had to ask for drink refill\, extra bread and so on.
Not the best. All the other ships have had outstanding shows. This was our least fav. We always do bingo on cruises. If you want to do that they never start on time it says 3 you will start around 3:15 or later so dont plan to do anything by 3:30
Children's Programs
Kids had a blast this trip was for them and they really did a good job keeping them busy.
