Carnival Valor

5 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)

Sail date: February 11, 2017

Ship: Carnival Valor

Cabin type: Oceanview

Cabin number: 6205

Traveled as: Couple

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Review summary

Not near enough helpful staff. Plenty of staff to provide the costly extras not included but when I see a line of 60 to 100 people at the one guest srevice desk open, it tells me very clearly that Carnival has dropped the ball (the other was closed the whole trip).

The food was available during very limited hours and hard to find locations. Why would Guy's burgers close up at 6 PM. Why close the main buffet at 6 PM? THAT IS SUPPER TIME FOR MOST NORMAL PEOPLE!!!!

All in all I was very disappointed

Very nice. Very clean with great service. Very very crappy TV crammed with carnival advertising designed to suck cash from the paid passengers. Remote is garbage!!!!

Ship tip

Get your money back (if you can) and fly to a real all-inclusive resort.

Ports of call

Galveston, Texas

Cozumel, Mexico

Take a shore excursion that itemizes a real sandy beach. Beware snorkel trips with poor equipment and a "drop off the shore" style beach

Progreso (Merida), Mexico

Sandy beach
