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.
There is a fun vacation waiting to happen to you, and it lives aboard Carnival Valor.
Forget what they say the most important meal of the day is brunch. Slumberers can sleep in and still enjoy breakfast favorites, while early-risers get a head-start on lunch. And Seaday Brunch brings everybodys favorite mid-morning meal to your Carnival cruise, and does it right. You will enjoy huevos rancheros, special french toast, loaded mac-n-cheese and yes, more ways to cook eggs than we even thought was possible. Chow down and fuel up you have got lots of exploring to do, across the ship, for the rest of the day.
"Hey, which side does the fork go on?" is a question you'll never have to ask at a dining room dinner aboard a Carnival cruise... we set the table for you. We also bring to the table a full three courses in an experience that's filling, but never stuffy - after all, you're just as likely to catch waiters table-dancing as you are to order dessert. Dessert's included (along with the rest of your meal, by the way) in your fare. But don't skip straight to dessert, because the main course is the main attraction - drop in daily and enjoy a rotating menu of delectable favorites like steak, roasted duck, scallops and prime rib.
Featuring a nice variety of casual dining options like Mongolian Wok, Chef's Choice, Salad Bar, Carnival Deli and more, the Lido Restaurant has something - or more likely, at least a few somethings - to satisfy your craving. With plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, plus food options for everyone, you can enjoy your personal favorites in company of family and friends for lunch or dinner... or even breakfast! It's also where you can find our pizza, soft serve and frozen yogurt - all open 24 hours a day, which ought to be enough for anybody.
Turn your special vacation in the direction of delicious - book a table for an unforgettably delectable evening at the Steakhouse. Our menu features mouthwatering premium cuts of beef cooked to your exact specifications, as well as a fantastic selection of seafood, entrees, gourmet appetizers and an extensive wine list. The atmosphere pairs remarkably well with - and perhaps even enhances - the culinary creations of our gourmet chefs.
Tip: Like any destination restaurant, reservations are highly recommended, and can be made online after booking your cruise. Your meal includes an appetizer, salad, entree, side and dessert.

And since you get hungry when you get hungry, room service is available any time of the day (or night) and delivered right to your door.

Tossing dough is an age-old art passed down the generations. Lucky for you, someone passed us the secret to the perfect pie. While aboard, this is the place that will shiver your timbers and warm you to the bone, 24 hours a day, with a Margherita, Funghi, Prosciutto, Pepperoni or Quatttro Formaggi pizza served with a delicious Caesar salad.

The evening concludes with a mind-blowing full-service dinner of amazing appetizers, entrees and desserts not found on our regular dining menus.

Pause your vacation and treat yourself to a well-deserved break with a specialty coffee drink or freshly-brewed tea plus some delicious homemade pastries. Or, for an even sweeter option, stop by for a milkshake, slice of cake or cookie.
Chow down on some delicious Asian goodness. First, select your noodles and veggies. Then tell one our chef which sauce and meat you want in the wok. Will it be mussels and Szechuan? Beef and Thai barbecue? Chicken and black bean? Do not worry, the decision does not have to be final you can come back to Mongolian Wok and try all the combos your heart desires!
Got room for dessert? Sure you do! Swirls ice cream lets you enjoy the sweeter side of brain freeze with a treat that'll have you smiling from ear to ear. Choose from chocolate, vanilla or strawberry... or make your own mix swirled as high as you can balance it. Open on Lido deck 24/7, our frozen yogurt and soft-serve ice cream is a great way to beat the heat all day, or the perfect nightcap after a long evening of fun.
Serenity Adult Only Retreat
Somebody at Carnival knows just what you need, and it's pretty much exactly the Serenity Adult-Only Retreat. Look, you'll still be on the same ship as the kids, the hoopla, and all the Carnival-style excitement... but you could easily forget, because when you're at Serenity you could not be further from it all. The world you'll find yourself in is one of complete peace, sea breezes, swaying hammocks and, of course, a nearby bar. It's the place to get done the kind of stuff you just can't seem to do anywhere else - reconnect with your partner, finish that book, or do absolutely, blissfully, nothing at all.
The Punchliner Comedy Club
Comedy clubs on land... well, it's kinda funny. Nobody likes paying cover charges, and you know that two-drink minimum? They've gotta be joking! You won't find either of these at The Punchliner Comedy Club aboard your Carnival cruise. Up on stage you will find some real pros who know how to wedge a little laughter into anyone's evening. You can count on these comedians to not hold back either. Since some of them get up and say exactly what's on their mind, we also schedule family-friendly performances... so the only red faces in the audience are from laughing a little too hard.
Above the ship you'll find the shining sun, but that's not all - basking in its rays is a gleaming symbol of fun, a monument to merriment... a sign of splashy-good times to come. Spot the spiraling Twister Waterslide atop your Carnival ship and you can be sure that your vacation comes complete with twists, turns and squeals of thrilled delight. Countless gallons of water course through the entire length of this slide, so you're by no means dry when you start, but by the time you reach the end - hundreds of feet later - you reach new levels of soaking, splashing down in that classic waterslide photo-finish: hands-up, eyes wide and nothing but exhilaration on your face.
When it comes to complete relaxation from the inside out, nothing beats a trip to the spa. From the minute you step inside, the soothing ambiance begins to work its magic. Renew yourself with premium beauty and wellness therapies, like hot stone massages, aromatherapy or full-body wraps. This is your time to be spoiled, indulged and even beautified. Lie back, close your eyes, and feel the stress sail away as your body and mind experience total tranquility. (Oh yeah, and this feel-good stuff is not just for the ladies, dudes, there are plenty of treatments on our menu for you too.)
Our stage shows are designed to razzle and dazzle. Featuring talented singers, musicians and dancers performing crowd-thrilling numbers in extravagant costumes with awesome sets and scenery, it's like catching one of the best shows on land. All performances are created to ensure that every night feels like opening night. And best of all, since shows are included in your fare, it's like having top-dollar tickets to the hottest show in town, absolutely free.
When was the last time you got up and danced... at the theater? Playlist Productions takes tunes you know and presents them like you've never experienced before - past favorites become full-blown musical productions featuring singers and dancers bringing down the house. Enjoy the spicy sounds of Latin Nights, or the larger-than-life favorites (and personalities) of Divas. Don't forget Motor City - which will have you dancing in your seat - or even The Brits!, a swingin' revue of your across-the-pond favorites. Enter the center of groove with the passionate Heart of Soul. Rounding out the lineup is the anything-but-square Getaway Island, the arena-shaking sounds of Epic Rock, the piano-pounding 88 Keys, the totally bad-meaning-good 80s Pop to the Max, plus the funky, sophisticated... and not at all exclusive Studio VIP, where everyone's welcome to come and get down!
