7 Night Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 09, 2016
Ship: Carnival Valor
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8216
Traveled As: Couple

Lido was good, the main dining room service was abysmal.

Entertainment in all areas was old production seen several time previously, with only two singers. Only three stage shows presented all week.

The stateroom was well located, but often had the odor of sewer gas. Adjacent staterooms reported the same, as was the hall, and elevator area. Many Carnival officers, and staff seen throughout the area, but nothing was done, until I complained to the front desk. I was told it was, "sea weed", I disagreed, finally they fixed the problem on Thursday, only one day without the odor.

Library had few English language books, but many Spanish language books. Drinks contain exactly 1 ounce of liquor, Scotch, bourbon, etc, and costs $8.50, plus tip. A frozen drink is almost $10, and the 3rd floor lounge has few employees, and no table service without requesting.

Too much more to list here.
