Carnival Valor Review

Review of Carnival Valor

The 2004-built cruise ship Carnival Valor is the thirrd of all five ships in CCL-Carnival's Conquest class - the series which preceded the Dream-class trio.

IMPORTANT: Due to scheduled drydock refurbishment projects, in September 2020 CCL cancelled all planned for 2020 and 2021-Q1 itineraries for 4 ships.

  • Carnival Magic itineraries from Miami Florida were cancelled from November 7, 2020, through March 13, 2021 (1st departure).
  • Carnival Paradise itineraries from Tampa Florida were cancelled from November 2, 2020, through March 19, 2021 (1st departure).
  • Carnival Valor itineraries (28 total) from NOLA New Orleans were cancelled from November 2, 2020, through April 29, 2021 (1st departure), including two Transatlantic crossings - from NOLA (January 25) and from Barcelona (February 26).
  • Carnival Spirit itineraries from Brisbane Australia were cancelled from December 6, 2020, through May 16, 2021 (1st departure is on June 12 / repositioning cruise from Singapore to Brisbane).

History - construction and ownership

Carnival Cruise Lines (CCL) is a US company, trademarked brand and subsidiary of Carnival Corporation (shipowner). CCL was founded in 1972 as an independent company by Ted Arison (1924-1999, co-founder of NCL Norwegian). Carnival Cruise Lines has Corporation's largest fleet as both a number of vessels and GT tonnage (ship sizes and capacities). CCL has over 1/5 of the cruise industry's worldwide market.

Carnival Valor cruise ship

The 110,239-ton, 2,974-passenger cruise ship Carnival Liberty and her Conquest-class sister ships Conquest, LibertyGlory, and Freedom, are among the biggest in the fleet of Carnival. They are basically larger versions of earlier Destiny-class ships, as well as more feature-filled. More space reveals into additional decks, with even more bars and lounges, an upscale steak house, and well-proportioned public areas. 

Cruise itinerary program

Carnival Valor itinerary program is based on week-long roundtrip cruises departing from Bridgetown and San Juan. Out of Port Canaveral, the ship offers Western Caribbean sailings to Puerto Rico, Mexico, BelizeRoatanGrand Turk, and the Bahamas.

In 2021, Carnival Valor has scheduled two Transatlantic crossings. Both itineraries are 15-days, one eastbound from Port NOLA New Orleans to Barcelona (January 25 - February 9, visiting Hamilton Bermuda, Funchal Madeira, Malaga, Valencia) and one westbound from Barcelona to NOLA (February 26 - March 13, visiting Cartagena, Malaga, Funchal Madeira; Philipsburg St Maarten, San Juan Puerto Rico). Both Transatlantic cruises were planned because of the 17-day drydock refurb at Navantia Shipyard (in Cadiz Spain).

Cabins

Carnival Valor has a total number of 1492 cabins (of which 52 Suites, 513 Balcony rooms) in 34 grades. It has no family cabins but offers several connecting rooms in a variety of categories, as well as 18 Spa cabins. The ship also has 29 accessible cabins in all cabin categories. Most Carnival Valor staterooms are 185-220-sq.foot insides (577), oceanview (340) and balcony (513, with verandas of 75 sq.feet). There are also a total of 52 suites, measuring between 275-500 sq.feet. More than 50% of the cabins offer ocean view, among them 60% offer also private verandas. The three types of suites are Captain's Suites, Grand Suites, and Ocean Suites. Suite passengers receive priority embarkation and debarkation, VIP check-in, and a deluxe bathroom.

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

On Carnival Valor, the two main dining rooms offer traditional dinner with set times and tablemates or flexible dining, via "Your Choice Dining" Carnival program. Washington Restaurant is nicer of the duo. It is located aft and framed by 3 walls of windows. Lincoln is positioned in a central spot, but both offer the same menu. At dinner, the vegetarian and low-carb fare is served, as well as Spa Carnival choices. Cuisine often exceeds expectations, especially at Scarlett’s Supper Club and the sushi station. The casual Rosie’s buffet offers a number of food stations with a variety of choices, including a salad bar, deli, dessert station, daily regional cuisines. The 24-hour room service provides a limited selection of items.

Carnival Valor cruise ship

Carnival Valor emerged from her 16-day dry dock on May 08, 2016 with a host of new restaurants and bars, including upgrades already received by most of the rest vessels in the fleet. In addition to the apothecary-like Alchemy Bar, candy story Cherry on Top, RedFrog Pub and SkyBox Sports Bar, the ship also received poolside RedFrog Rum Bar and BlueIguana Tequila Bar, as well as their complementary eateries, Guy's Burger Joint (which has a tie-in with Food Network superstar Guy Fieri) and BlueIguana Cantina.

Shipboard entertainment options - Fun and Sport

The theme of Valor's decor is "Heroes and Heroism," regarding not just Americans, but heroes from every corner of the world. Cruisers are first represented to the theme as they board through the atrium lobby on Deck 3. To be sure, there is still enough Farcus bling in the details, bright molded gold leaf-gilded eagles on simulated pedestals are scattered all around the liner, as well as coffered ceilings of glossy, reflective materials and plenty of blinking lights and flashing video screens to trigger a 1960's light flashback. Like her Conquest-class sisters, Valor also boasts a 3-deck theater - Ivanhoe, and a series of stores. Carnival Valor offers the typical Carnival experience blended with a handful of twists. The "old faithfuls" are also there: personal service and diverse evening entertainment ranging from Vegas floor show to jazz to the "piano man".
