Fun Time: Carnival Valor Cruise Review by raggedyann6

Destination: Western Caribbean
Our cabin steward did not stop by and introduce himself like on other cruises but we wrote notes for him when we needed anything which he got. My cabin mate met him the 2nd or 3rd day he was very nice but had 18 cabins to take care of no wonder we did not see him. They work the staff to death I think. I would rather pay an extra $50 and have more staff. The shows and comedy was pretty good not fantastic. My friends did the water slide which was always open unlike previous cruises.
The pools were open a lot also never more than a few people in them. The ship was very clean. We went dancing every night in the dance club the big negative to me is they allow smoking in the club. The last 2 Carnival cruises I went on last year one out of Long Beach, CA and one out of New Orleans did Not allow smoking in the dance club. The smoke from the casino went out to the bar and dance floor next to it. I smelled smoke in the areas that allowed smoking. I wish the only place to smoke was one side of the Lido deck or if they had a better ventilation system. There was no smoking in the cabins which is nice.
We met a lot of fun people on the cruise which is one of the reason I love cruising. There were not many kids under 18 but the ones I did see seemed to be having fun. We did not do any excursions through the ship, we private booked them.
We did the luggage express since our flight out of Miami did not leave until 5:15 pm. They sent the luggage on and we picked it up at our final destination which was great. We had breakfast in the dining room the day we left and got off the ship around 10 which took about 5 minutes to go through customs which was fantastic. Less
Cabin review: 4F7386 Interior
Cabin 7386 was in the end of midship near elevators and stairs. It was easy to get to the dining room, lido and dance club. There were cabins above and below us. It was fairly quite.Read All Interior (4F) Reviews >>
