Carnival's Valor cruise ship, which sails from Alaska to Europe, features a wine bar, a four-deck-tall water slide, a steakhouse and many other types of restaurants. The ship departs from ports in Greece, Spain, Puerto Rico, the Eastern Seaboard and the Gulf Coast. Farther west it departs from Honolulu and Vancouver, British Columbia.
The Valor is 953 feet long, has a guest capacity of 2,980 and a crew of 1,180. Its gross weight is 110,000 tons. Staterooms include interiors, ocean views, balconies or suites and have a room steward on duty 24 hours a day for free room service. Cruise length ranges from two to five days, six to nine days and 10-plus. As of fall 2015, prices start at $219 per person for a four-day Bahamas cruise.
The Valor has three areas where children can play, a Dr. Seuss character story time and the 214-foot water slide, which Carnival says adults enjoy too. For adults, the cruise ship has a spa, stage shows, a theater, shops and an adult-only retreat. Restaurants feature sushi, Mexican, Indian, Mongolian and Italian-American dishes. Some meals cost extra, but meals from the Lido, the Mongolian Wok that features Asian foods, the hamburger restaurant, the Mexican cantina and the brunch restaurant are included in the cruise price.
