7 Night Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 05, 2016
Ship: Carnival Valor
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 6335
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

This was our 4th cruise and we had a blast!  The crew was magnificent.  Attentive, friendly, effective.  Even though the ship is about to go in for it's 2.0 upgrade, nothing was in disrepair, nothing was dirty, nothing was dingy.  The crew maintained the ship 24 hours a day, and do a great job.

The food was wonderful and plentiful.  We strongly recommend the Chef's Table.  We absolutely loved it.

We went for a balcony cabin and never regretted it for a second.  The view was magnificent and the ability to stand (or sit) outside, all alone on the huge ship, enjoying each other's company in private was worth any premium we paid.

We will cruise again and Carnival is our choice!Happy

Service and Staff

Our Cabin Stewardess, Ana, was wonderful. Couldn't have asked for better. The dining room crew was wonderful, too. Every employee we met greeted us with warmth and friendliness, while doing their jobs cheerfully and effectively.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Spotless and fully functional! My only suggestion is to have arrows on the walls or floors every once in a while showing fore and aft! Got turned around a few times. OK, every time!!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Very spacious and comfortable. Left side of the bed could be a few inches farther from the wall. Desk area could use a few shelves to hold smaller items, keeping counter clear. Bathroom is tiny but has plenty of counter space for my wife's stuff.

Ship Tip

More activities aft. Choose your cabin accordingly.

the cruise port signage isn't very clear. Leave plenty of time to get around.

Book an excursion or you'll be stuck in the terminal (not bad, just stuck)

Maya Key was awesome. Snorkeling, animals, food, beach. Add some kayaks and it would be perfect.
