Verified Review
5 Night Eastern Caribbean (San Juan To Port Canaveral)
Sail Date: March 22, 2015
Ship: Carnival Valor
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8331
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 3 years ago

Our room (8331) smelled of sewer or, I think you call it Black Water, from our first day (Sunday) until Thursday.  Also the lobby area at the elevators also smelled the same.  FINALLY by Thursday, last full day on ship, it was better.  The Buffet lines were not open past 3:30, closed earlier in some areas, but had good food.  We cruised Royal Carribean last year and didn't have any of these problems.  We paid for a Balcony room and this is what we got, SMELLY!!!!  Most of the other floors didn't smell like ours did.
