Great Trip! Many Improvements on the Valor!

Sail Date: June 17, 2016

Reviewed: 3 months ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Inside

The cruise director was terrific, Chris.  He was all over the ship!  He even lead the Dr. Seuss parade for all the kids all around the deck.  Great ports and excursions!  We had our twin 7 year old grandsons with us and they loved Camp Ocean!  The refurbishing that was done to the Valor is a great improvement.  We were on this ship a little over a year ago and the improvements are everywhere and terrific!  The crew was wonderful, food was delicious!  Really enjoyed Guys Burger Joint!  Smoothest embarkation ever on a Carnival cruise!  Overall a great trip for Grandkids and Grandparents!
