does the valor look anything like the glory or is everything way different than the other ship
we are either going on the glory or the valor i am not sure yet
i like to know which is the better ship i know the valor is a much newer ship
Both Valor and Glory are "Conquest Class" ships, and in that respect they are very much the same. Decor aboard the two is considerably different, and I suppose a matter of taste. I personally prefer Valor, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with Glory. Either ship will be a super cruise.
Like everyone else said they are the same class of ship. I have never been on either ships, but the Valor is a newer ship.
Carnival Dream for Thanksgiving
Eastern Caribbean- 11/20/2010
Carnival Ecstasy (4 Day Baja Mexico) 2003
Carnival Pride (7 Day Mexican Riviera) 2007
Carnival Spirit (8 Day Exotic Mexican Riviera) 2007
Carnival Freedom (7 Day Western Caribbean) 2008
Carnival Elation (4 Day Baja Mexico) 2009
Carnival Spirit (7 Day Southbound Alaska) 2009
I have never been on the Glory, but both ships (just like everyone else said) are the same with the exception of the public room decor. To pick between these two I would consider itinerary and transportation costs difference to Port Canaveral vs Miami.

The Glory was launched in 2003 and the Valor in 2004. That's virtually the same age..... which in my book is new and modern enough.
I've been on the Valor and can highly recomend it, which means her sister ship the Glory must be her equal.
The only legitimate criterion in the choice between the two would be itineraries/ports of call.

I echo Troth - we were on Glory the week Valor took her maiden voyage.
For some very nice pics of Valor check out Cutiecat's post under the dining room attire thread currently active.

We did the Glory in Dec 2004 and the Valor in Dec 2005. Really there is very little difference between the two. I would gladly sail on either one of them again. Then again I would be happy to sail on any ship again.
