Both ships are very nice. But if we had to choose we probably would go on the Valor again mainly because they have the large screen by the pool and it is so nice to be able to watch movies/concerts/ sportin events there. We do not go to a lot of the things in the theater and we do not gamble so having the screen is great for us.

Lightbulb ports of call

Since I have been on both of these ships, I can say both are great.
My worthless advice would be select your cruise based on the itinerary and price. The Valor is a little bigger, but in my opinion the similarities outweigh the differences. Ports of call...now they can really differ.
PAST TRIPS= Enchanted Capri
Carnival: Inspiration, Legend, Valor, Destiny, Holiday, Triumph, Splendor, Fantasy
HAL: Maasdam twice, Statendam, Oosterdam

I agree that the ports of call would be the deciding factor for us if we were in this position. JMO
