Another Carnival Cruise Line ship has received an extensive makeover.

The Carnival Valor ship has undergone a renovation that includes the addition of several new dining and bar concepts, the company announced.

The ship, which will begin a year-round program of three and four-day voyages from Port Canaveral, has added eateries and bars including Guy’s Burger Joint, RedFrog Pub, SkyBox Sports Bar, RedFrog Rum Bar, BlueIguana Tequila Bar and Alchemy Bar.

“Carnival Valor offers a convenient and affordable choice from Port Canaveral, with a host of exciting new innovations as well as popular features like a reservations-only steakhouse and nearly 600 balcony staterooms – rare for a short cruise itinerary,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.   “We’re sure our guests are going to love all the new features and our travel agent partners will appreciate this exciting new cruise vacation option departing from the Space Coast.”

The ship will operate a year-round Bahamas schedule beginning in October, with several regional cruises of three and five days beginning in May, visiting ports like Grand Turk, Amber Cove in the Dominican Republic and Nassau, among others.
