Ship Facts: Carnival Valor Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Valor Deck Plans
Carnival Cruise #8 , 7th different Carnival Ship
We had a GREAT cruise as usual. It was our third cruise with friends along and we have so much fun having other people to meet up with, share excursions, etc.

No major problems, a few minor glitches that just happen sometimes: flight from Atlanta to Miami delayed 45 minutes, lost cellphone during muster drill (found and turned in by crew member within an hour), two hats lost to the wind in Cozumel, delay in leaving ship in Cozumel while the Conquest was docking, lost prescription sunglasses in Miami airport on Sunday (found and now on their way home via FedEx). :)

The Valor is known for friendly crew and it definitely showed. EVERY crew member smiled or spoke when I approached or passed with eye contact and a smile. The usual Carnival obsession with cleanliness was quite evident. GREAT friendly cabin steward. Fun and friendly dining room staff.

The weather was good, minor rain during waking hours and a lot of wind on the way home from Cozumel.

We finally tried the Supper Club on this trip. It was nice but I wouldn't pay to do it again. Food was great, service was good but too formal and too much "frou frou" on the plates.

Actually won in the casino: won $112 on a 2-cent slot machine and promptly cashed out (had put $30 in).

Love our Cruise Director Big Tex, the comedian Jim Brick and the 80's-music themed show on Friday night. It was a great trip!
