Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Carnival food is always good. Maybe not great; but very good for the entry-level cruise line. Pizza and Guys Burgers are always a standout.

The Valor staff was some of the nicest I've experienced.

Ship Quality

Layout and design is definately an average. Those funky presidential heads and eagles were a treat though. Cleanliness was good.

Ship tip

It's older and doesn't have all the venues of the newest ships. Just relax and enjoy the ride.
