Carnival Valor is a post-Panamax Conquest-class cruise ship operated by Carnival Cruise Line. Built by Fincantieri at its Monfalcone shipyard in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, northern Italy, she was floated out on March 27, 2004, and christened by American journalist and author Katie Couric in Miami on December 17, 2004. The vessel is based out of Port Canaveral, Florida, and has a "Heroes and Heroics" theme. Duty-free shopping, a spa, a casino, and numerous entertainment options are some of her features.
Carnival Valor's home port is Port Canaveral, Florida. She currently[when?] sails 5, 7, and 8 night cruises to the Caribbean and Bahamas. Television host Katie Couric is the Carnival Valor's godmother.
Carnival Valor underwent dry dock renovations in April 2016, in which it added Fun Ship 2.0 innovations.
