Ship Facts: Carnival Valor Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Valor Deck Plans
Christmas and New Years on the Valor!
I will try to keep my review short, so that you don't lose interest.

Embarkation: easy. Don't expect to get your bags before 6pm (Although its possible) but pack bathing suit and a change a clothes for embarkation day.

Ate in the Washington Dining room with Arnell and Michael as our waiters. Service was great and the food was excellent. Always a different choice every night and the Chocolate Melting Cake a HIT with the kids.

Sea days were difficult to get chairs in the main area of the Lido deck, but plenty of chairs to be found around the ship, despite the chair hogs (And there were plenty) However, if you complain to staff, they will enforce the 30 min time limit for vacant chairs.

Serenity Spa (adults only) was a great spot, but again, lots of inconsiderate chair hogs.

Sushi every night from 5-8pm always was a nice snack before supper.

Preferred Breakfast and Lunches in Rosie's, but try the Fish and Chips as there's more than Fish and Chips!

Always lots of selection in Rosie's for lunch and breakfast and never a very long wait.

Camp Carnival was disappointing, more for the parents then the adults because the kids didn't really enjoy it, but managed to keep themselves busy with other activities (mini golf, water slide).

Service was excellent from the buffet, to restaurants to the cabins.

CLEAN! They are constantly cleaning, ship was spotless.

Entertainment and shows for the most part were great. Comedians (including kid friendly shows) to the 80s shows and others. All were well done and well attended!

Debarkation: One of the last to leave, but that's probably because we were not flying out for a couple of days after the cruise.

Would definitely sail Carnival Valor again!!
