Hi, I was on the Valor 3/19/06 with my 15 year old son, my parents, and my aunt and uncle. We all loved the ship! It was great, the staff was wonderful, the food was great. There were so many different things to do on ship, you could keep busy or sit back and relax. The staff did everything they could to make our trip better. We are already looking for our next cruise with Carnival and we may even go on the Valor again! I hope this helps and have a great trip.
