Default Glory or Valor

I am planning a July family cruise for my wife and two daughters 13 & 15. Thinking of Eastern intinerary both ships make stops at the same ports. Which ship would you reccommend? Thanks for any input.

Which is cheaper ? You may know this already, but they are sister ships built in 2003 and 2004 as part of the Conquest class. According to the travel guides, they are identical except for the decorative themes...the Glory has a "colors" theme while the Valor is "heroism" in its decor.
I'm booked on the Valor in May, so I too am curious about these Conquest class ships.

As you have stated, they are almost identical. One differance you'll note, IMO is the food taste. We found the food to have more flavor aboard Glory, probably just seasoned more to our taste. I think that it's a bit easier to embark, disembark at Port Everglades than it is at Miami, and I suspect you'll find the price to be a bit better for the Glory as well. I did enjoy the entertainment aboard Valor a bit better, but by now the casts have probably been rotated, so that may, or may not be true.
You won't go wrong with either ship, and I'd book the one that has the best price. If the price is the same, or close, I'd book Glory.

I will be interrested to see Thoth's May cruise results on the valor. I have scheduled that ship for my maden cruise in September. Well, except for my many cruises on the big grey ship in the Navy.

Thanks.. ....I DO plan to write a concise review and then post it here.
I think one will find a cruise ship a lot more luxurious than a Navy vessel.
