Carnival Valor Overview

Launched in 2004, The Conquest-class ship from Carnival Cruise Line was recently renovated in 2016, receiving Carnival’s new “Fun Ship 2.0” treatment. Travelers aboard the Valor will now enjoy Carnival’s newest dining venues, an enhanced nightlife and an overall improved ship full of excitement. Upgrades include the addition of venues such as Guy's Burger Joint, RedFrog Rum Bar, BlueIguana Tequila Bar, BlueIguana Cantina and many more.

Fun activities are available for kids including Suess at Sea, a 4-deck-tall spiral water slide. Camp Carnival includes supervised game and activities. And don’t worry about your teens, as they can hang out in a club that is designed just for them.

What’s in store for the adults? You can relax and grab a drink at one of the great bars and lounges available throughout the ship like the Alchemy Bar, have some laughs at the comedy club, or get your groove on at the nightclub. Need some peace and quiet? Catch some sun at the Serenity Retreat, a quiet, adult-only area

The 2019 - 2020 sailing for the Carnival Valor depart from Galveston and New Orleans with destinations to the Caribbean and the Panama Canal.

Work Spring Cruise by dwebb26648184

I love cruising and typically I love Carnival. Each time I cruise I find that it seems like they keep cutting staff. It really is hurting the overall experience. Again I love cruising and my room steward was fabulous but overall I would say service is slipping because of how stretched these people are who are doing the service. It's not their fault at all.

For quiet time visit winstons bar in the afternoons. We played cards there before dinner many days!

Go see the shows! Don’t put too much food on your plate and be one of those people that leave food wasted on your table. If you like something you can always go back for more.
