Carnival To Launch Valor with Two-Day Cruise
With travelers following the trend toward more frequent vacations, shorter cruises (voyages of five days or less) are becoming more commonplace -- and Carnival Cruise Line is uping the ante with plans for a special two-day inaugural voyage to launch its newest ship, Carnival Valor. This news comes just less than two months after the folks at Carnival announced the addition of new short cruises to its list of itineraries.

The one-time only Bahamas "mini cruise" will depart from Miami on December 15, featuring a day-long visit to Nassau, and may also turn out to be a shrewd marketing tool for Valor -- the ship will be permanently based in Miami next year, and the two-day voyage will give passengers a taste of what the ship is like. After being completed at the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy, the 110,00-ton, 2,974 passenger Valor will be the largest Carnival ship based year-round at the port of Miami, which is undergoing a redevelopment program that will include two new ports for Carnival's use.

Valor will begin seven-day Caribbean service from Miami on December 19, right after the "mini cruise," sailing both Eastern and Western Caribbean routes. The ship will feature 12 passenger decks, a two-level dining room, sushi bar and patisserie, 1,200-seat casual poolside restaurant, and an upscale reservations-only supper club.
