Our friends we are traveling with are all the way at the other end of the ship...deck 8.....aft
We haven't been on the Valor, but have been on several Carnival ships and we like the balcony on the side of the ship way more than the aft. The 6th deck is called the upper deck and the location of your cabin is very close to the elevators, which is very nice in my opinion. Being towards the front means not so far to walk to get of at the ports. Asks your friends how far they had to walk.. On the side of the ship you'll see flying fish and other cool things in the water. On the aft you'll see the " wake only." It gets boring after a while. On the side you have privacy and on the aft you'll have none. When pulling into ports you'll see the port as you pull in but on the aft you really don't see as much.
