Relaxing cruise overall

Sail Date: September 01, 2013

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Generally\, an okay trip. Dependable service from Carnival. Food was good except the selection of desserts was downgraded from our last cruise. The cabin we were in was near a toilet with low water pressure so every time someone flushed there was a high pitch whine. Our family was in a cabin next to noisy neighbors who were affronted when security asked them to quiet down and so did not comply. But off the ship\, the islands we visited were nice except for the stray\, starving dogs and cats we saw.

Pros: The islands we visited were great. It was easy and convenient to find things to do.

Cons: There were starving dogs and cats at the beaches. On board dinner seating was challenging. Some maintenance issues.

Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!

Aldo\, the guitar player\, was brilliant! He was a highlight of our cruise.
Service and Staff
All of the serving staff in the dining room including Anny\, Andreya\, and Gusti were a pleasure to see every night. Maintenance changed a light bulb within minutes. But guest services promised to look into the toilet whining and never did and also never followed up.
Cabin / Stateroom
Both of our staterooms had unique issues--whining toilets or noisy neighbors.
