Carnival Valor Facts

by Melissa McCormick

The Carnival cruise ships travel to the Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, New England, Europe and Bermuda. The Carnival Valor -- one of the company's 23 ships that primarily travels the Caribbean Sea -- is part of the Conquest fleet and also one of the newest Carnival ships. First built in 2001, the Valor provides enough space for nearly 3,000 passengers and more than 1,000 crew members.


The Carnival Valor offers a variety of amenities for passengers including an outdoor movie screen to three swimming pools. The ship features a dance club, video arcade, teen club, library, a variety of bars and restaurants, a theater, a camp for kids, a casino and shops. In addition, the ship offers a health spa, a photography center and a fitness center.


Passengers may choose from several room styles on the Carnival Valor. The ship offers nearly 1,500 rooms, including suites with balconies that feature extra space, walk-in closets, whirlpool tubs and private balconies. The Carnival Valor also offers ocean view rooms with private balconies and ocean view staterooms with no balconies. The least expensive accommodations on the ship are the interior staterooms that do not have an ocean view and feature basics such as cable television. All guest rooms are situated above ocean level.


The Carnival Valor sails the Caribbean Sea, leaving primarily from Miami. The cruise line offers a variety of vacation packages throughout the year. Popular stops include Belize, Isla Roatan and St. Martin. Destinations can vary based upon the time of year, the length of the trip and the number of people traveling.


The 110,000 ton ship features 13 decks. The Main deck, Upper deck, Empress deck, Verandah deck, Lido deck and Riviera deck hold most of the guest rooms, while the other decks feature mostly food and entertainment. Both the Sky deck and Panorama deck offer views of the ocean and outdoor relaxing.
