Ship Facts: Carnival Valor Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Valor Deck Plans
You have to be brave to cruise with this ship
The Carnival Valor I feel lacked all around from the Cruise Director to the staff that spoke very little english or bad english. The ship didn't open up both sides for upper deck dining, the deserts were limited to two, until last night. I got sick soon as I went on ship, not sea sick and not sure what...a piano player helped to the infirmary, basically did nothing, went back to my room got worse they said to come back down...I was unable to walk with fear of passing out and was traveling alone, they would send no one up to check on me..I slept for two days with the help of sleep aids and gratefully felt better when pulled into a port. The shore excursion through Carnival in Mexico for dolphin trainer school for the price of 250.00 was a total rip off. I have swam with the dolphins in various places, this was the most expensive and most disappointing...a free tee and lunch were the highlights when it should have been spending quality time with the dolphins...they write it up to sound very inviting...don't be fooled. I've sailed with Carnival Victory 3 times and had a great time each time and the cruise director Malcom Burns was wonderful each time, funny, charming, went out of his way to make it a great time for everyone woooooo hoooooooo:)the food was better, the desserts many to choose from day and night with beautiful ice sculptures...the atmosphere on the ship was one of joy....on the Valor as soon as I walked on I literally felt a difference. I'm not usually one to take time and complain, yet for the money I spent, same price for one person as two, it was my worst cruise ever and it really bothered me they could care less I was in my room alone very sick and no one would check on me. I will not sail on the Valor again and perhaps never Carnival again, for the Victory now leaves out of S.C. and I don't' know if I'm willing to take another chance on would have to be a freebee. I spoke with other people on the ship and certainly people had fun, but if you know how things should be on a cruise and they don't meet your expectations, for the money spent...lesson learned...won't do it again with the Carnival Valor
