Excellent Time - Would be great for everyone
Getting on to the ship was easy. Had to wait in lines like always, but was quite fast. Maybe 45 mins from arrival at the port till we were eating on the lido deck. We boarded at about noon and rooms were not ready till 1:30 so ate and waited. Room was clean and nice (small but that is expected like all cruises). Common rooms are also very clean.
Food was very good, a lot of people complain about food on cruises. You do have to think they are feeding 1000's of people each day. Service was also very good in the dining room. We ate at the dining room every night and lido deck for breakfast and lunch.
It was very easy to get a deck chair on port days, even close to the pool. On day at sea days, would take a little more time, but still was able to find deck chairs. More people wanted shade so, hard to find covered, but easy to find chairs in the sun.
Entertainment was excellent from the on board personnel but the only 1 out of 3 comedians were funny. The juggler was More okay, dropped his objects quite a bit. The magic show was a joke. Only did two illusions, which were good, but really was only 2 mins of show but took about 90 mins. The shows put on by the dancers and singers were excellent and the cruise director Big Tex was very funny. Did a couple of crazy funny things during the week.
I had an excellent time, love cruising Carnival, cruised Carnival in the past and will go Carnival again. Less

Cabin review: Carnival Valor Interior Panorama 1012
Excellent Service from the Cabin Stewardess. Room's are small but that is what you get on a cruise. So I would say its acceptable. Very clean, and Cabin 1012 was quite for the most part when we were asleep. It is right about the SPA/Fitness center. So between 10am and 8pm it can be a little loud from people dropping things. The roof made a clicking noise a little when we were sailing, but nothing bad at all.
