Default A Few Questions about the Valor

My DW and I will be cruising this November on the Valor and I have a few questions. What shape is the Valor in? Has it been refitted recently or scheduled to be anytime soon? Our room is in the Stern with a slightly larger balcony than on the port and starbord. Has anyone stayed in one of these Cabins? We've alway's stayed midships. Will we notice the diference? We can't wait to go. Only 6 months. Only!

i sailed on the valor this past summer. it is a fairly new ship, so to me it was in very good condition! i loved the decor on it, which is mostly "american" themed. the casual dinning area is decorated like a 50s style diner and the atrium is decorated with presidents faces and american flags. i don't think that it is being refurbished anytime soon because it was just built in 2004 so it is one of carnival's newer ships. i have not had a cabin like you are describing yet, but i am sailing on the liberty in july and will have one on that cruise. have fun!

I sailed on the Valor a few weeks ago. I don't know where the stern of the ship is, but I had a cabin in the back of the ship. I had cabin 8448. It has an extended balcony. This balcony was huge. I loved it!!

Did you hear deck chairs or feel much vibration?

Anthony, I see that you had room 8448, can you tell me a little about that room, and did you have privacy on the balcony, I just came back from the Valor, in February, we had the 6th floor, next to the corner up back, and their was no privacy at all, although I did love it, so for next February we already booked and went higher to 8448.
Thanks

Gail, What do you mean by no privacy? We are going to be two cabins away from the corner due stern but two decks above where you were. Were your privacy issies from above, below or the sides? Do you think two decks above where you were would have the same problems?

I think so, We were in 6454 , Everytime I went out to my balcony , everyone would be waving to each other, standing on theirs, the girl next to us on our left was out their reading a book, all the time, and the ones with the corner, were just sitting drinking their fruit punch, We could see everything, and if I bent over a little I could see their bed, althouh I only looked when I knew they left the room, just to be nosey,

When we had the AFT on the legend once the corner, and I forget the other room we had complete privacy. and could go out their and dry off from the shower if you know what I mean, but not on the aft Valor. I even felt funny in my robe.

I will still go for the AFt, it was beautiful , I will just dry off, in the shower ...........

Nobuns.

We were so close...

Okay, I have to ask, your name, it sounds like you're on the South Beach diet. Nobuns, nobread, nopotatoes.

Can you tell I'm watching my diet?
