I'll trade for spa consultation services

Sail Date: April 01, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

I mostly enjoyed our cruise\, but the communication regarding accounts\, IDs\, and spa services was not good. Our waiters and stewards were wonderful and very attentive. The entertainment was fun and the ship was clean. There were a lot of mistakes with our sign and sail accounts and the spa set up was horrible. It took a lot of our time away from us to deal with and correct (multiple times) the mistakes.

Pros: Stewards\, ports\, entertainment\, waiters

Cons: communication\, guest services organization\, spa\, layout\, food was so\, so

Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship was nice and clean but the layout with the spa being under the kids club was ridiculous.
Food and Dining
A little variety at the buffet would have been nice- same things every day. The evening meals were mostly good but could have been better quality.
Cabin / Stateroom
Room was clean and well-maintained. Enjoyed having the balcony.
Service and Staff
Very much enjoyed the staff. Very friendly and attentive. (Thanks Gede!)
Enjoyed most of the entertainment. There was a good variety. Hint: \"Adult\" comedy does not have to be riddled with the F word and offensive to be funny.
Children's Programs
The older kids club (O2) needs better activities and more engaging directors.
