LEARN MORE ABOUT YOUR SHIP
Your high seas hero Carnival Valor is here to rescue you from ordinary vacations and whisk you away to leisure, fun… and amazing destinations.
On your way you’ll find onboard food spots designed to regale your palate, like BlueIguana Cantina and Guy’s Burger Joint… plus the downright indulgent Scarlett’s Steakhouse. Let yourself be swept away to RedFrog Pub or Alchemy Bar for a drink, or get a little carried away rooting for your favorites at SkyBox Sports Bar.
Kids can get caught up in all the excitement of being kids, hanging with others their age at Carnival Valor’s three supervised youth spaces. Or they can join the wacky, wonderful Dr. Seuss bunch for character story-time (and more!) at Seuss at Sea. And pretty much anyone, young or slightly-less-young, will be thrilled by our 214-foot long, four-deck-tall Twister waterslide.
On the entertainment front, Playlist Productions takes tunes you know and presents them in song-and-dance, up-on-stage spectacular shows. And speaking of shows that transform… Hasbro, The Game Show turns childhood board game faves into large-scale competitive fun for the whole family.
If you thought for a second your vacation might be boring, now you know not to fear — Carnival Valor has what it takes to save any vacation!
Enjoy a late night cocktail at the Dream or Bronx Bar or a nice glass of wine at Jeanne’s Wine Bar. Watch a movie poolside at Carnival’s Seaside Theater, take in a live show at the Stage Show, or listen to music while enjoying a cocktail at the Piano Bar.
Families traveling together can let the young ones hang out with friends at any of the Valor’s three supervised children’s areas. Kids and thrill-seeking adults will enjoy an exciting ride down the 214-foot Twister water slide or lounging by any of the ship’s pools.
If rest and relaxation are more your style, check out the many treatment and massage options at the Carnival Spa.

CRUISE CANCELLATION AND ITINERARY CHANGE POLICY
Once your booking is within our cancellation penalty period, the amount of penalty will increase as the cruise departure approaches. When calculating the days prior to sailing, the day of sailing should not be considered as one of the days. The day of sailing is considered the first day of the cruise:
From the final payment date to 56 days prior to sailing (or 46 days prior to sailing for cruises 5 days or less), the penalty is the standard deposit amount.
From 55 days prior to sailing to 30 days prior to sailing (or 45 to 30 days prior to sailing on cruises 5 days or less), the penalty is 50% of the total fare or the deposit amount, whichever is greater.
From 29 to15 days prior to sailing, the penalty is 75% of the total fare or the deposit amount, whichever is greater.
From 14 days prior to sailing to the day of your cruise, the penalty is 100%* of the total fare.
No refunds will be made if you do not show up for your cruise or if you interrupt or cancel your vacation once it has begun.
ITINERARY CHANGE PRIOR TO DEPARTURE:
If Carnival has adequate notice prior to sailing that a vessel will deviate from the published itinerary it will promptly – upon making the itinerary change -- notify guests of the change through their travel agents or directly, in the case of a direct guest booking.
If the itinerary change is for reasons within Carnival’s exclusive control, guests will have the opportunity to cancel their booking without penalty prior to sailing and within 24 hours of the guest notification, and in such an instance, guests will have the option to receive either a cash refund or a future cruise credit. In the event a guest does not cancel the cruise on a timely basis, no refund of any kind will be available.
Due to the nature of a cruise vacation, itinerary changes sometimes become necessary for safety, weather or other reasons beyond the control of Carnival. If the itinerary change is for reasons beyond Carnival’s exclusive control, including but not limited to safety, security, weather, strikes, tides, hostilities, civil unrest, port closings, emergency debarkations of guests or crew, late air, sea, car or motor coach departures or arrivals, mechanical breakdowns or problems not known to Carnival, itinerary changes consistent with U.S. State Department travel warnings / advisories or other applicable US or foreign governmental advisories, guests will not be provided any compensation. Guests electing to cancel will be subject to the standard cancellation terms.
ITINERARY CHANGE AFTER DEPARTURE:
In the event an itinerary change becomes necessary while the ship is at sea or when notice prior to sailing is not feasible, Carnival and/or the Master will attempt to substitute an alternative port. Carnival and/or the Master may, in their discretion and for any purpose, deviate in any direction or for any purpose from the direct or usual course, and omit or change any or all ports of calls, arrival or departure times, with or without notice, for any reason whatsoever, all such deviations being considered as forming part of and included in the proposed voyage. Carnival shall have no liability for any refund or other damages in such circumstances.
REFUND OF TAXES, FEES AND PORT EXPENSES:
If a port is cancelled from the scheduled itinerary, a refund of the taxes, fees and port expenses for the cancelled port will be provided via a shipboard credit.
