Having made the most of the amazing restaurants, sit back and let your food settle as you enjoy some of the top-class entertainment available on Carnival Valor. The best way to kick off your night is by washing down that meal with a drink at one of the many bars and lounges you can find on the ship:

  • American Bar- a busy bar located in the Atrium, this a great spot to grab a drink and watch the world go by
  • Winston’s Cigar Bar- the go-to place for karaoke nights
  • RedFrog Pub- serving up beer, rum and cocktails

  • RedFrog Rum Bar- a Caribbean-themed poolside bar serving colourful cocktails
  • BlueIguana Tequila Bar- browse the extensive menu of tequila-based drinks and Mexican beers to enjoy by the pool

However, if you want to spend your evening watching a show, there are plenty to choose from during your cruise. Playlist Productions put on two shows every night of the cruise in the Ivanhoe Theater so guests can marvel at the Broadway-style music and dancing. For something a little different, Eagle’s Lounge plays host to the Punchliner Comedy Club and its standup shows, while an outdoor projector screens lets guests watch a film under the stars.

Carnival Valor also has a couple of late night spots for those wanting to make their evening last longer. The Shogun Club casino is a popular venue throughout the day, where spectators look on as guests try their luck on various card tables and slot machines. Meanwhile, for anyone who likes to hit the dance floor after a couple of drinks, One Small Step is the ship’s nightclub, which really draws the crowds for midnight hits.

There’s no risk of being bored during a Carnival cruise as guests can do as much or as little as they want during their time on the ship. Boasting three pools, six jacuzzis and a towering waterslide, it’s no surprise that the deck is one of the most popular spots onboard. Head here for family fun splashing about in the water or simply kick back and enjoy the sunshine on a sun lounger, getting up every so often to refresh yourself with a tasty drink from one of the nearby bars. There is even an adult-only lounge area, providing a peaceful haven amongst the hustle and bustle.

The deck also has plenty of other facilities ranging from mini-golf to sports courts, so guests can get involved in some competition during their holiday. Inside, there is a modern fitness centre with machines, free weights and exercise classes, perfect for anyone wanting to keep up with their workout even when they aren’t at home.

Another busy spot on the ship is the atrium, where guests can find a card room, library, photo gallery and a variety of shops and boutiques where you can pick up a holiday memento before you leave.

However, if you really want to make your time on Carnival Valor memorable, treat yourself to a visit to Spa Carnival, where experienced professionals are ready to indulge you in treatments. Give yourself the full experience by booking in at the salon for a haircut, manicure or pedicure.

Customer reviews for Carnival Valor

Great holiday, great weather, but disappointed with the food

Had a brilliant time, the ship is fantastic. The people who worked onboard were very happy all the time and very polite, nothing was too much trouble.

Just back from a delightful 7 day Western Caribbean cruise arranged perfectly by Iglu to the finest detail. All transfers were organised including aid for my disabled mother with utmost care & precision. It was a huge relief to have this free support at the airports in the USA, Puerto Rico & the UK. Food on the cruise was for the most part superb, though I have to say not as good as Royal Carribean. The staff on the ship were wonderful but the entertainment was pretty awful. Only gripe about the Iglu rep was that she didn't mention the need for a particular document to land in the USA, even though we were in transit & we almost missed our first flight, had it not been for the quick & determined efforts of a UK airport assistant with Delta!
