Just received an upgrade email for our Feb cruise on the Valor. Family of 4 going... moving from a balcony on the upper deck (6) to spa deck (11) for $30.

Worth it or no?

I can't evaluate the cabins for you, but it would seem as though you are basically getting a spa pass for 2 for $30. That's a bargain.

Check what is below you. some of the rooms have the fitness center below you which can be noisy.

Below and above are cabins.

Cloud 9 spa rooms aren't on the Valor. There wouldn't even be a question if they were.

I would do it as fast as my fingers can dial ! Very quiet area and if the valor has the steam rooms and stuff you get 2 passes for the week. We love spa cabins especially for $30

Is it the spa balcony cabins that have no 'top' on them? People in the public area above can look down on to your balcony. I seem to recall that from the Freedom and Valor is the same layout, isn't it?

Perhaps! Not sure.

Depends. I'm not a fan of either deck. What is your current cabin number?

Since Valor does not have Cloud 9 Spa, the only consideration really is your location preference. Deck 6 has the promenade deck below which could cause noise issues depending on your deck 6 cabin (think stage, dance club, sports bar, bands along the promenade, etc.), and deck 11 has Serenity and Camp Carnival above it. On deck 11, you'd be close to the sauna and steam rooms in the spa which I believe are complimentary to all passengers, but if you'd be using those, you'd be closer to them.
