One forgetable vacation

Sail Date: September 01, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The ship\, to be honest\, is just meh. Nothing spectacular and perfectly average. Absolutely nothing makes you say wow I sure am glad I'm on this ship. The best part about the ship was the people we sailed with. And that has nothing to do with Carnival. This was easily our least favorite cruise. The islands are so close together that the ship literally stops and goes dead in the water so that you'll spend more money on board.

Pros: Barbados\, St. Martin

Cons: Food\, St. Kits\, St. Lucia

Recommends Carnival Valor? No.

Ship Quality
Things were clean and worked well. The layout was familiar from other ships in the Carnival fleet. The layout works for the amount of people on board.
Food and Dining
Was easily the most average food we've had on a cruise and that is being kind. The best free food we had on board was the room service. The steak house was very good.
Cabin / Stateroom
It was fine. We really wish the air conditioning would let us get the room below 70 degrees though. It is very warm in the inside cabins.
Service and Staff
The ship's staff was great we really enjoyed the crew and staff of the ship.
The entertainment was average to below average. Nothing to make you say wow or remember.
