Overall a good time EXCEPT for the smokiness around the Casino which really reduced the enjoyment of the cruise. I would choose a different cruise ship unless smoking is prohibited in the Casino. Smokers can smoke out on an open deck - not in an enclosed area of the ship.
I really enjoyed dinner, my waiter was Awesome, and his Staff. Milan he took very good care of my group.the dinner staff was awesome. Very concerned about our needs. They were very nice,and welcoming. They made sure that they knew our likes and dislikes, that was very important to me. We only had to ask once. I really enjoyed dinning with them all.
Very relaxing, We had a lot of fun, and got to see so many things that you wouldn't normally see and experience in Southwest Louisiana. It was booked for us as a wedding gift and I'm really thankful we were able to go. Definitely would do again!
This was my fiancé’s first cruise and I wanted to make sure it was awesome. I had a bad experience on my first carnival cruise and I thought I’d give it another chance and it was still disappointing. I am a 3 strikes person and carnival has not done well. I was hoping this cruise experience would have been a homerun.
It was a great experience until our way home and the boat was creaking and could not sleep the whole night. It was a little scary and was hoping we were ok to get home. I cannot say enough about the staff, wonderful and very friendly to everyone.
Pros: The ship was clean, the common areas were bright and cheerful...the cabins were comfortable and the staff was truly outstanding.
Cons: Very crowded, very loud....and very easy to spend a truck-load of $ with that damn card.... and I didn't even go into the casino -- I can just imagine how much money you could dump in there.
Overall, it was a pretty typical Carnival cruise....lots of fun to be had and money to be spent.... and (thankfully) some quiet places to hang out too!
WE REALLY DID ENJOYR OURSELVES. THE OCEAN WAS ROUGH AND ROCKED THE SHIP MORE THAN WE WANTED TO FEEL IT ROCKING. THE SHIP WAS CLEAN, THE FOOD DECENT, THE STAFF WAS GREAT, THE ART SHOW OFF THE CHAIN. WILL HAVE TO REALLY RECONSIDER DOING ANOTHER ONE JUST WONT GO IN SEPT OR OCT.
My husband and I enjoyed it immensely. We celebrated his 50th and the cruise was perfect. Just the two of us making memories. Our cabin was perfect. The food was amazing and there was plenty of it but we didn't over due it. Thanks so much to Linda for helping us book the trip that we will never forget💕
My husband and I have cruised many times before but we shose this ship for our kids first cruise. We had a day of sea sickness (tends to happen when 3 hurricanes in sea) and had a water leak in our room. The staff of Carnival Valor made sure that my family was taken care of. They went above and beyond! the cruise director Frankie was amazing! Our room steward became part of our family for the week. Love her! Yuli was great.
It was a wonderful time!! The ship was beautiful and very clean. Everyone was friendly!! The food was great!! I loved both excursions we went on!! The weather was perfect!! Our room was comfortable!! Really had a great experience!!! Thank you Carnival Valor
