Great Trip! by davidap11

We enjoyed the cruise. The only disappoint was the excursion in Progresso. We have visited Progresso before and not a huge fan. This was the 1st time for an excursion and we were disappointed. Cozumel is always fun and we always have a great experience in this port. TJ our cruise director was absolutely fantastic. We actually were able to meet him and he was kind enough to send us a note and gift to our cabin. We meet some nice people on the ship as well.

It was ok for my first cruise. The dining room room was awful. I dressed up 3 night prepared for good food every night I was very disappointed.

First timers by elcglg

Verified Review

Blatant merchandising the entire trip. Fun shops offered tiny discounts on liquor that get raise when paying TABC duties, plus having to lug around bottles. Too many ship activities were centered on getting you to spend more money. Dining room was over the engine room and was slightly sickening. Not all bad of course. Getting away with a loved one was worth. Not unpacking numerous times to visit different places was good. Cruise director was perfect for the job. It would nice to have a guided tour for first timers, rather than stumble around for a few days.

Great Cruise by poojaarora

Verified Review

The overall experience on Carnival Valor was great. Had a great family fun on the ship. The staff was very helpful and courteous. The only disappointment was vegetarian food. Our whole group of 7 people are vegetarian and everyday in Washington dining hall, the only vegetarian options were lentil, basmati rice, pickle and pappadam. I could not imagine eating the same food for four days. I hope Carnival will take a note and try to introduce some more vegetarian options.

Excellent trip. We loved it by tundebanwo

We enjoyed the cruise overall. However it is our first so I was kind of nervous but I quickly became comfortable and did not get sea sick also to my surprise. I will be going again. It is very vital to make room for the activities at the port of calls to get a full experience. we will do more of that next time.

I had a wonderful time on this trip but I had a few disappointments on the ship itself I believe it's time to update Carnival Valor a little bit but other than that I had a great time

Family fun time by misti72

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Me and my family absolutely love this ship. Although going through that crap at the end of the cruise to get off the ship almost makes us want to go with another Cruise Line. This is my first time on Carnival absolutely loved our cruise director TJ. We had lots of fun although the rough Seas at the end we're kind of bad but I don't blame anyone for Mother Nature. The food was good the steakhouse was awesome!. Just needs a lot of work on disembarkation!

Eh! Not for me by jonathanlemus

Verified Review

If your looking for a peaceful getaway think again! Ship was very loud in our cabins the entire time! We had kids running up in down all during the day. I felt trapped like I couldn’t go to my cabin to relax. During the day it was pretty boring on days at sea nothing to do. They had cheesy things like a posture seminar? Really your going to have all these party people and do a posture seninar? Overall I had fun with the people I was with but by day 3 was ready to go! I don’t recommend it and wouldn’t go back no matter how cheap it was! I usually go on Royal and I now know why!

I had the best time by rachelstine84

It was fun. The third floor was a pain. I think the third floor should be accessible from all elevators. The dining room being over the engines was the WORST. I could never enjoy my meal.

fun experience! by olbuitra

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

This cruise was my first experience. Since I was never interesting on doing it, I really enjoy the food, service was excellent, love the show at 10:15PM (dancers were just great) I really love the singers (Kayleen and the other with black hair) they sang just beautiful. But I consider myself not a cruise person. I think is just too many people and I can not stay 5 day on just 1 place doing same thing over & over. Thanks Carnaval for the experience. CONGRATULATION ON THE TRAINING YOU GIVE TO ALL YOUR EMPLOYEES. GREAT PEOPLE, GREAT SERVICE.

It is Carnival by skjjmoore

The cruise was typical for Carnival. I recommend an excursion at both ports of call. Galveston is very quick getting both on and off the ship compared to larger ports.

Never again on this ship by billandbettyram

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Our cabin was lacking in many things. Things which we had always had on other ships so expected to have, such as only 1 electric outlet and that not well located, no kleenex, no bath robe. I could name more but I think you get the idea. Cabin was not well located for handicapped. 6 of our 8 cruises have been on Carnival ships and were always good but this leaves a really sour taste and I certainly would not go on Valor again. Even my husband, who will eat anything, did not like the food. Breakfast was good. Hamburgers were good. Sorry, I can't give you a positive review. Celebrating our 63rd anniversary, guess I'm just getting grouchy!!!

I was worried about the reviews when I booked our cruise but it was the only one available in the dates I needed. Everything about the cruise impressed me. It was such a fun atmosphere. I wish that I had done it sooner.

Carnival Valor - November 2018 by 96probenj

Overall, this cruise was great, and we can't say anything negative. Just understand that the jewelry and art sales are not exactly the deals you think, and we see the same 'art' on each of the cruise ships, so know what you are buying before getting wrapped up in the sales hype.
