  3. Carnival Valor
My husband and I cruised on this ship on its last cruise out of Galveston in May 2019. I was very dirty and the ship was very unkept! The food was poor and the buffet lines wrapped all the way around the cafeteria. Carnival cruise line desperately needs to overhaul this ship and do some cleaning. Outside of ship was even nasty. Rusted in many places. Duct tape even ran along the staircase railings. Never seen anyone cleaning except our room steward. Public restrooms even smelled bad. Very poor! Cleanest nicest part of ship was our room. Entertainment focused all around remarks toward sex or alcohol. This is definitely not a family oriented shop nor is it for one who is not there to party. Now it is one of the few ships that sails From New Orleans which I hate because the good ones have moved out to make room for them. Sad!

Dirty ship
