In 2020, as part of Carnival’s final phase of its $2 billion dollar fleet enhancement, the 18-year-old Carnival Victory will be completely renewed and refreshed, becoming Carnival Radiance.
The major overhaul will add over 100 new cabins, as well as new food and drink venues, including Guy’s Pig & Anchor Smokehouse Bar-B-Que—a partnership with Food Network star Guy Fieri that’s also featured on the Dream– and Vista-class ships. Other new dining venues will include Fahrenheit 555 steakhouse, Cucina del Capitano family-style Italian, and the full-service Asian restaurant Bonsai Sushi.
The ship will also add a SportSquare ropes course, miniature golf course, the adults-only Serenity retreat and a Cloud 9 Spa—and of course an all new water park with AquaTunnel and Twister slides, plus a kiddie splash zone.
“This investment in Carnival Radiance and our many other refurbishment projects reflects our continued commitment to providing our guests with fun, high quality vacation experiences across the Carnival fleet,” Carnival president Christine Duffy said. “We have been investing in our products, amenities and experience offerings at unprecedented levels which are driving higher results in guest satisfaction, passenger yields and on-board revenue,” Duffy continued. “Our guests and travel agent partners can count on a high degree of consistency and quality vacation offerings across all our fleet and homeports regardless of what ship they’re sailing on.”
Carnival Victory will be dry-docked in Cadiz, Spain for 38 days in spring 2020, and a renaming ceremony will make her transformation into Carnival Radiance complete. Itineraries for the newly named vessel will be announced this November.
