This evaluation was for the maiden voyage of the Valor on
12-19-2004. While, many aspects of the cruise were quite good,
overall our experience leaved much to be desired. But let's start
with the positive:
. Inside staterooms that appeared quite spacious . Generally
friendly staff . Clean and well kept common areas, (ship was
commissioned 12-04) . Very good night time entertainment .
Excellent dinners in the premium steakhouse (for an additional fee)
. 2 good ports of call
On the downside would have to be the overall quality and
quantity of the food:
. poor food quality in the main dining room for breakfast and
lunches . cold, average to horrible food in most buffets . lack of
concern for health department rules governing "hot" buffet food .
lack of vegetables with most dinners selections . disproportionate
servings sizes with the dinner entrée's starch and
Overall I rated the Carnival Valor as 2.5 on a scale of 1 to 6
with 6 being the best. I guess we expected good to very good
quality of food and in my opinion and many of my cruise mates the
overall quality of the
food was described as "awful". We would not recommend Carnival
Cruise Lines for any future trips.
