I wish I could give a zero! The whole cruise we smelled sewer in our balcony cabin, hallway, all around the pool area. The water in the pool gave us and SEVERAL people rashes after the first night on board. Everyone was complaining and NOTHING WAS DONE. They sprayed air freshener for the smell wich made it worse. We never got back in the pools. There was nothing to do but trivia unless you wanted to spend $50 a card for bingo, buy drinks (the unlimited drink card is a joke you get 15 drinks per day and their SUPER WEAK like fruit juice) we didnt have the drink card our friends did so our drinks were strong and they was only allowed certain drinks the whole unlimited things a scam. EVERYONE on this cruise we just got off of today was complaining and wanted their money back. They were just told file a complaint…We have done that since day 1. CARNIVAL VALOR IS A SCAM. WE FELT LIKE WE WERE STUCK IN A NIGHTMARE…DONT USE CARNIVAL.We have requested our money back!

The food was mediocre & contracted norovirus (food poisoning)the 3rd day & was isolated for the last 2 days puking my brains out. Could not hold any food down for 7 days. The nurse was horrible at starting iv’s & my arm is still bruised & sore over a month later. I was offered a $43 cruise credit due to being isolated. What a smack in the face, but it’s safe to say I won’t be cruising with Carnival anymore.

If you enjoy waiting in lines, eating tasteless food, being surrounded by broken things, having a limit on your “unlimited” drink package then this is the cruise for you! This cruise was not relaxing, enjoyable or felt like a vacation at all. I will say though that the comedies and bartenders are the only good thing on this cruise.

Port of New Orleans was great we moved so fast with the process to get on the ship.We needed a relaxing vacation and we got it on this cruise.We choose the first day to relax and do nothing just laying around.The sail away party was awesome and the DJ was amazing.

This is my 3rd time cruising. And honestly Carnival Elation was way better than this ship. The service was poor exactly for my disabled cousin, nobody helped us when it came to finding where to go, and nobody understood what we're saying. This ship "sinks" smelled like sewage. The cabin was ok but could've dusted and it was dated. I think it's ridiculous that u can't bring water on the ship and the fact u have to get a soda from a bar when it should be free but I digress. Beside all of that I enjoyed my vacation I enjoyed the food as always, Slept good in my cabin, I loved the comedy show, I took a lot of pictures ok the crew that took christmas pics was rushing and didn't take good pics of me and my family but there a few I liked so I digress, and I shopped in Cozumel and had fun. Overall I'll give this ship a 5.5/10 it was good but could've been better hopefully I have a better experience When I go on my next cruise which is this year but this time on Carnival Glory.

Just got home Monday off the valor. Everything was perfect including the staff. Especially our room steward Johnathan he was amazing from the beginning to the end. The only thing I didn't like was that the Scarlett steakhouse bumped our reservation twice. What's the point in making reservations if they're going call you the day of with some bogus excuse of over booking. I see once but 2 days back to back. Not only did it happen to me but also my best friend who was on the cruise with us. The person we talked to acted like he really did care when I told him that this had happened 2 days in a row and that pissed me off even more
