My wife and I went on the Valor in 2006 and had a great time. The ship has an Americana theme and American leader theme. The staff were fine on the ship, but I think we had a little bit better staff on the Conquest in 2004. The food between these two ships were great and I suggest working out a little while your on the ship to keep the lbs. down.
The shows were fantastic and the comedian was funny. We went on the Western Caribbean cruise with stops at Grand Cayman, Cozumel, Isla Roatan, and Belize. The excursions were better on this cruise than the Conquests. If you have anymore specific questions don't hesistate to ask.
