We just got off the Valor on the 9th, we had a balcony room as well. I found it to be brighter than on the Triumph. They had two nightstand lights, then an over head light, and then one over the mirrors and dressers. I thought it was plenty bright, most of the time, we only had the over head light on.
Good luck, and enjoy the Valor, she is my favorite ship yet! Josh Riffle is a great CD as well!!!
A bad cruise is still better than a good week at work!!!
