Have you sailed on Carnival Valor? We'd love to hear your take and see your photos. The following information was curated by Cruiseable.

Snapshot

Carnival Valor has a heroes and heroics theme, featuring a variety of themed restaurants, entertainment and activities.

Let yourself be swept away to the Dream Bar for a drink, or get carried away rooting for your favorites at the Bronx Bar.

Kids can get caught up in all the excitement of hanging with others their age at Carnival Valor’s three supervised youth spaces, and pretty much anyone will be thrilled by the 214-foot long, four-deck-tall Twister Waterslide.
