Carnival Valor was built in Italy in the early 2000s and first sailed in late 2004. It cost $500 million to build. Katie Couric, who used to be on the "Today" show, named the ship.

Since its start, the ship has been updated several times. In 2008, they improved some rooms and added a lounge for preteens, a seaside theater, and a mini golf course. In 2011, they added more rooms and an adults-only area during a 14-day upgrade.

The biggest update was in 2016 in the Bahamas, which added many new bars and eateries, a new youth club, a candy store, and an updated buffet area and internet café. The most recent update was in 2021 in South France, where the ship’s exterior paint and design were updated.
