Carnival Valor undergoes major renovations prior to year-round sailings

MIAMI — In preparation for its new year-round program of three- and four-day voyages from Port Canaveral later this year, Carnival Valor has undergone a major renovation that added several dining and bar concepts.

The new spaces were implemented during a dry dock from April 23-May 8, and include: Guy’s Burger Joint, RedFrog Pub, SkyBox Sports Bar, RedFrog Rum Bar, BlueIguana Tequila Bar and Alchemy Bar.

“Carnival Valor offers a convenient and affordable choice from Port Canaveral, with a host of exciting new innovations as well as popular features like a reservations-only steakhouse and nearly 600 balcony staterooms – rare for a short cruise itinerary,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. “We’re sure our guests are going to love all the new features and our travel agent partners will appreciate this exciting new cruise vacation option departing from the Space Coast,”

Carnival Valor is one of four ships that sail from Port Canaveral, which is also home to Carnival Magic and Carnival Victory offering year-round departures, as well as Carnival Sunshine operating seasonal sailings. Together, these four ships will carry more than 650,000 guests a year, more than any other cruise operator.

Carnival Valor kicks off its year-round three- and four-day Bahamas cruise schedule from Port Canaveral on Oct. 30. ON this route, three-day cruises depart Thursdays and call at Nassau, while four-day voyages depart Sundays and sail to Nassau and Freeport.

In addition, the Valor will offer five- to eight-day voyages running from June 4-Sept. 30. Five-day cruises visit Nassau, Half Moon Cay and Freeport. Eight-day eastern Caribbean cruises call at Grand Turk, San Juan, St. Kitts and St. Maarten, while eight-day southern Caribbean sailings include Aruba, Grand Turk and Curacao or Bonaire.
