Carnival Valor

Sail Date: February 24, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The staff were very accommodating, especially in the dining room where I had a restricted diet. Shows were great. Would have liked a steel drum band on the pool deck as I have had on other cruises.

Did not like at all that the air conditioning was too high -I froze on the inside of the ship every day and my husband caught a mega cold from going from the heat outside to inside the ship.

I did not appreciate the smoking areas- I have asthma and had to walk through the casino or near it many times to get where I was going. Smoke really bothers me. I did not like the fact that smoking was allowed in the eating area near the buffet. If they worry about fires and do not allow irons on ships, I certainly thing that smoking should not be allowed for this reason and health reasons.
