Every Carnival cruise ship has a unique thematic style to it, and the Carnival Valor has an especially playful one. With an immense size of 110,000 tons and passenger carrying capabilities of 2,974, the Valor ties in elements of adventure and heroism into the ship-wide decor.

Fabulous Amenities

The Bronx Bar is a Yankees-theme sports bar celebrating some of the greats with custom baseball-styled bar stools and banquettes. Neil Armstrong is the hero of focus in the One Small Step disco. A mind-bending dance hall with towering volcano-like craters lit up by LED lights.

Ivanhoe is the name of the immense three-level theater. It showcases mannequins decked in shining knight armor which you appreciate while taking in the many song and dance productions that the cast performs to perfection.

No luxury cruise ship would be complete without more swimming pools than you could ever need. The Carnival Valor has four enormous pools and two oversized hot tubs. A 214-foot long water slide that traverses 3-decks and will have you squealing in delight.

Dining on Carnival Valor

Go get a prime-aged steak at the upscale steakhouse. Or, enjoy the complimentary Lido buffet with its wide variety of pizza, burgers, deli sandwiches, and ethnic cuisine.

The children are certainly not forgotten on the Carnival Valor. A 4,200 square foot Children’s World space is design to fully satisfy a kid’s wildest dreams. It has a video wall, computer lab, PlayStations, arts-and-crafts, video arcade, and even an inflatable laser tag arena.

You might feel like working off those meals in the ocean view gym, or you might just feel like sweating it off in a steam room at the 21,000 square foot Cloud 9 Spa. We won’t blame you if it’s the latter!


Cruise prices have never been more affordable than they are with Carnival Valor, and it promises to be a trip you’ll never forget. Be the hero of your family and book a cruise today!
