Carnival Valor to Operate 6- & 8-Day Cruises from Miami in 2012

Building upon its distinction as the leader in Caribbean cruising, Carnival Cruise Lines will introduce a series of 6- and 8-day voyages from Miami aboard the 2,974-passenger Carnival Valor operating mid-Jan through Oct 2012. Carnival Valor’s 6- and 8-day departures provide consumers with new itineraries featuring unique combinations of Caribbean destinations and opportunities to visit islands that are typically not featured on longer length cruises from Florida.

Six-day cruises depart on Sunday and return the following Saturday, while the 8-day cruises depart on Saturday and return the following Sunday. All itineraries allow vacationers to cruise in one week, an advantage for those with limited time.
  • Western Caribbean 6-day cruises will call at Key West, Grand Cayman & Ocho Rios, departing once every two weeks beginning Jan. 15, 2012. 
Three different four-port, 8-day cruise itineraries will be offered on a rotating basis from Jan. 21 through Oct. 27, 2012. The itineraries include:
  • Eastern/Western Caribbean cruises calling at Grand Cayman, Ocho Rios, Grand Turk & Nassau
  • Eastern Caribbean cruises featuring stops at St. Thomas, Antigua, Tortola & Nassau
  • Eastern/Southern Caribbean cruises to Grand Turk, La Romana (Dominican Republic), Curacao & Aruba
Between now and Dec 2011, Carnival Valor will continue to operate its 7-day voyages which depart Sundays from Miami, alternating to the eastern and western Caribbean.

Carnival Valor is one of 19 Carnival Cruise Lines’ ships that call at Caribbean destinations on a year-round or seasonal basis. Carnival carries over 3.3 million guests on Caribbean cruises annually, the most of any cruise operator. The line will expand its Caribbean offerings in November when the new Carnival Magic launches 7-day eastern and western Caribbean cruises from Galveston, becoming the port’s largest year-round ship.
