Carnival Valor is coming to Port Canaveral


Carnival Valor is coming to Port Canaveral and we couldn’t be more excited! Carnival Valor will offer a series of three- to five-day cruises starting this month, as well as a program of five- and eight-day departures through October. The three- to five-day sailings will take place throughout May, visiting popular ports like Grand Turk, Amber Cove, Half Moon Cay, Nassau and Freeport. The ship will also offer a one-time six-day cruise departing May 15 featuring Nassau, Amber Cove and Grand Turk.

Valor kicks off it’s year-round three- and four-day Bahamas cruise schedule from Port Canaveral Oct. 30, 2016. Ports of call for this voyage include only Nassau, but the four-day voyages that depart Sundays feature Nassau and Freeport. These short sailings are perfect for weekend getaways and Carnival is such an affordable line that last minute getaways on a budget are a real possibility!


In preparation for its new year-round program of three and four-day voyages from Port Canaveral kicking off later this year, Carnival Valor was in a dry dock from April 23rd to May 8th. During that time, Valor underwent an extensive renovation that added a variety of popular dining and bar concepts.

“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,” she added.

New features being added to Carnival Valor include:

Guy’s Burger Joint: a free-of-charge poolside venue developed in partnership with Food Network personality. That’s right- free of charge, as in INCLUDED in your cruise price! Guy Fieri serving hand-crafted burgers and fresh-cut fries in an atmosphere that celebrates the chef’s California roots and love of car culture.

RedFrog Pub: grab a glass of Carnival’s own ThirstyFrog Red while soaking up the distinct atmosphere that has made the bar so popular among guests.

RedFrog Rum Bar: a poolside bar offering a Caribbean vacation vibe with rum-based frozen drinks and beers, including the aforementioned ThirstyFrog Red.

SkyBox Sports Bar:  catch live sporting events and check out scores on the real-time 24/7 sports ticker.

Cherry On Top: known as the “sweetest spot on board”, Cherry On Top offers simple indulgences with bins of bulk candy, fun fanciful gifts and novelties, custom apparel, and more.

BlueIguana Tequila Bar: an outdoor bar offering a laid-back Mexican-themed atmosphere and tequila-based frozen drinks and beers, perfect for a poolside afternoon.

BlueIguana Cantina: another complimentary (included in your cruise price) restaurant! The poolside Mexican eatery is a place where guests can enjoy freshly made burritos and tacos, as well as elaborate toppings and salsa bar.

Alchemy Bar: a vintage-themed cocktail “pharmacy” that’s the go-to spot for guests seeking a unique experience with mixologists who “prescribe” concoctions from different elixirs and ingredients or guests’ own custom-created cocktails.
