Carnival Valor needs updating

Sail Date: March 30, 2014

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

The staff, crew, programs and meals were excellent, but the ship needs new  carpeting, pictures and decor.  The shows were great, the casino was hopping, and the shops had some interesting sales.  Went to a art auction and learned the hard way that it is almost double the price you bid to frame and ship to your home.  The ports were wonderful on this cruise.

The lifeguard drill was the longest I have ever attended. Waiting for the instruction took 15 minutes and after the demonstration we had to stand another 15 minutes.
