Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This was a good cruise for the money. We were fortunate to wind up on a Halloween week with a 600 singles group which contributed to the good time
all the time. Nothing else was spectacular. Unfortunately, the soundproofing
between cabins on deck 7 was not too good. We could hear conversations in next cabin quite clearly. People on other balconies sounded like they were right next door, not three away.

Pros: Overall experience-itinerary\,crew.

Cons: Casino area- live music and singing sometimes too loud.

Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!

Ship Quality
Petite deck in balcony cabin. Easy to navigate though rest of ship if you remember galley between dining rooms on Deck 3. Clean throughout- well kept property. Adult pool area at stern a godsend.
Food and Dining
Scrambled eggs-ugh. Didn't open buffet util Noon on day we arrived in Nassau-caused a HUGH backup at grill in pool area and nothing else before going ashore. Wait staff in dining room reaching across table-not walking around.
Cabin / Stateroom
Very short of drawer space in cabin. Otherwise quite comfortable and clean.
Service and Staff
Smiling helpful faces everywhere. They were attentive to needs and resposive to request.
