The Carnival Valor is one of the older ships in Carnival’s line, having entered service on December 17th of 2004, when none other than Katie Couric christened it. Since that time, the ship has built a grand reputation with travelers around the world, all of whom praise the ship’s various amenities and features, in addition to the exceptional cruising itineraries that the Valor offers.
Carnival Cruise Lines understand that to maintain its reputation as one of the leading cruise lines in the world that its ships must always be advancing and adapting. That’s why the Carnival Valor recently came out of service for a period!

Well, the Valor has recently reentered service, and the new features that this boat is offering make her one of the best on the seas today!
