My Carnival Valor cruise

Sail Date: December 19, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

My wife and I have been on over 6 Carnival cruises and this was the worst.

1. There are 37 television channels and the major networks (ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX) went off the air at least 6 times for sometimes hours with no explanations. The major news network is 3 CNN channels. The most popular news network FOX News is not available. Also, there is no food channel or HGTV type channel. Very poor choices.

2. Service in the dining rooms is slow. I believe more waiters are needed. We missed 2 evening shows because we were still eating when the shows started. The shows that they offered were average at best and there were not shows offered every night like we have experienced on every other cruises on Princess, Royal Caribbean,  Norwegian or even Carnival.

3. There was 1 electrical outlet in our cabin, no enough. 

We will not be traveling on Carnival again for a long time.
