The Valor is FANTASTIC. I sailed her back in Oct. '06 for my 40th and had the time of my life. The food, service and cleanliness of the ship far surpassed my expectations. I have and will continue to recommend her to all friends and folks I chat with on here. In fact, I am sailing her again in 3/30 with my son for his Spring Break.
If you are thinking about booking a trip on the Valor, do it. You should have a great time. As far as decor, it is in reference to American Heroes and Legends. Nicely done the Carnival way, some of the lounges are a little on the 'over-done' part, but all in all a very beautiful ship. Very comfortable and CLEAN!!
I am hopeful this helps. If I may be of any further assistance, please don't hesitate to call on me. Bon Voyage Pally.
Oh god, I almost forgot...DO NOT MISS THE SUPPER CLUB. With God as my witness, Best $30pp you can spend. Trust me!!
