Ship Facts: Carnival Valor Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Valor Deck Plans
Carnival Valor - Western Caribbean

EMBARKATION: The usual long lines for entrance. One of the members of our 50th anniv. group, accidentally fell and we followed her in the wheelchair past all of the crowds.. thankfully, the injury was slight but the boarding of the Valor was much easier. Is there no better way to start your trip than in this way ??

CABIN: The balcony cabin was beautifully decorated and had lots of storage space with a couch before the TV and twin beds. Since the Valor is still very new, everything was spotlessly kept and the bath/shower area was roomier than we have had on our past 7 cruises. I even observed a supervisor actually using white gloves to check areas around the ship... Our steward was friendly and available each of the 7 days...

FOOD: Rosies (the buffet area on deck 9 ) was far superior to the Windjammers we encountered on RC cruises.. the food variety was plentiful and excellent with 24 hour pizza (very good quality ) and burgers etc around the 4 pools. The Washington dining room is a strange pink (WHY PINK //) but the waiters and the the food were far better than what I had expected..the starters (appetizers ) were much better quality and presented in a better way than the last RC and Norway cruises..The lobsters actually tasted like good lobster..

ENTERTAINMENT: The Las Vegas style shows were professionally great .. the comedy sections were less great but still good. the hypnotist was entertaining --the live band was excellent and the shows when they were present were of the highest quality... Our group are not much for the lounges but we heard a lot of good music everywhere.

ACTIVITIES ON BOARD IN PORTS: Limited. Our group was thrilled with the best snorkeling and diving in the world..we were so thankful that we missed the hurricane Emily which arrived just as we arrived safely in Miami.

DISEMBARKATION: A TERROR.. 3 SHIPS IN AT ONE TIME.. NO MORE NEEDED TO BE SAID WOULD WE TRAVEL WITH CARNIVAL AGAIN.. FOR SURE.. IT'S A MUCH BETTER EXPERIENCE THAN WE IMAGINED ----
