First Back to Back
Destination: Western Caribbean
The staff on the Valor are some of the friendliest and happy Carnival employees I have seen in awhile. Recently on the Vista and the Splendor, they did not seem happy at all. Our wait staff in the dining room were awesome and provided anything that we asked for. Our Cabin Steward, Wendry served us both cruises, we had one of the L-shaped cabins and are now in love with that cabin. We asked for 2 ice buckets to be filled twice a day and he happily complied. We did have the room serviced only once per day, but as long as we have plenty of towels and ice, that works for us.
Two bar servers, Luis and Joey were always happy to provide whatever we asked for. More The Alchemy bar is still a favorite. We saw both shows, and the Carnival Singers and Dancers do a good job. I always prefer these style of shows over magicians, jugglers, etc. The comedians were the same every night on both cruises. Brian was hysterical. Thea was okay, but got a little old after awhile.
The Casino staff was by far the best I have experienced. I like to play craps, but some cruises do not play more than once or twice. They were friendly, helpful and for the first time in 24 cruises, the pit boss actually bought me a drink. I played 8 out of 9 nights for just an hour or two.
The Valor was a great experience and we are now eligible for our Milestone credit and that much closer to Diamond. Less
Cabin review: 8B7439 Balcony
This was one of the L shaped cabins where the room has a bit longer hallway with the bathroom on the other side of the cabin and the balcony is much longer. This cabin is actually a little bigger than most of the balconies and does not have a couch, only a chair. I would choose this cabin every time. In fact once we got home we switched our cabin on the Breeze to this type for 2018.Read All Balcony (8B) Reviews >>
