Carnival Valor

Extensive makeover adds variety of popular dining and bar concepts

Carnival Valor underwent an extensive renovation in April 2016 that added a variety of popular dining and bar concepts, including Guy's Burger Joint, RedFrog Pub, SkyBox Sports Bar, RedFrog Rum Bar, BlueIguana Tequila Bar and Alchemy Bar.

The new spaces were added during a dry dock that began 23 April and ran through to 8 May.

“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‚ which is rare for a short cruise itinerary,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.
