A relaxing cruise

Sail Date: November 10, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

I've been in other Carnival ships, that I will overall rate higher than the Valor. Fisically the ship is nice, but it lacks of that warm feeling we allways felt with others like the Freedom, Spirit and Miracle.

Pros: Itinerary and schedules compliance\,

Cons: Grand Suite Service and attention (other than extra space\, there is no extra value in service for what you pay)

Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
I did noticed that on this Ship did not offered the varietty of food and options we have experienced in other cruises before (i.e. lack of Salmon snacks)
Cabin / Stateroom
In general is excellent. We did not like a black stain inside the toilet. It does not look good\, mostly in a Grand Suite quality
Service and Staff
Weight of this rating is due to the Stateroom Stuart (with exception of his assistance\, that was excellent).
The dinning Room service was excellent and Jose (Weiters Team Leader)and his Team deserves a full recongnition for really going above and beyong the standard.
We where a bit dissapointed with the VIPF celebration. No champagne offered. It was much better the prior to the VIFP program recognition to frequent Carnival Cruisers. It looks like you spend to much money in marketing the VIFP and could not afford the higher standard you had before.
