Break through the rigid standards of life and come together with fellow fun-seekers to unlock the revolutionizing authenticity of self-discovery onboard Carnival Radiance, the newest jewel of Carnival Cruises’ spectacularly whimsical fleet. This leading-edge Fun Ship singlehandedly encompasses the finest features and amenities to deliver an unforgettably genuine vacation for adventurous families and curious individuals looking to unleash their inner freedom.

Scheduled to debut in Spring 2020, the brilliant Carnival Radiance will navigate guests to sheer ecstasy, traveling highly-sought worldwide destinations in the Mediterranean, Canada & New England, Cuba, the Caribbean, the Bahamas, and Bermuda.

Having formerly served as Carnival Victory, this ship has undergone a refurbishment so extensive that it literally dazzles with pure radiance, and has been successfully renamed in reflection of these changes. Experience ultimate bliss with 110 brand-new accommodations, freshly-fitted entertainment venues (including Carnival Waterworks), enhanced specialty restaurants and bars, expanded shopping choices, a SportSquare complex, and an upgraded Cloud 9 Spa, complete with complementing spa-themed staterooms.

Personalized entertainment options aboard Carnival Radiance out-glow traditional cruising criterion, granting you the opportunity to live your best life onboard. Let loose with a giant game-show version of your favorite childhood board games (Connect 4 basketball, anyone?) or make a terrific splash at the colorful Carnival Waterworks aqua park. Shoot for a hole-in-one at the fun for all mini-golf course or take a shot at the daring mid-air SkyCourse challenge. Show off your best dance moves to the live music that drifts from bar to lounge or soak up the tranquil atmosphere at the adult-only solarium, tastebud-tingling cocktail in hand. Discover your favorite drinks presented in exciting new ways at the Alchemy Bar, serving up “prescription” cocktails handcrafted by expert mixologists, or indulge in your favorite beer as you cheer on the big game at SKYBOX Sports Bar. Regardless of your vibe, there is something that will bring out the best of you onboard every Carnival Radiance cruise.

Every foodaholics’ dream is destined to come to life onboard Carnival Radiance, where the fun and games don’t have to stop just because it’s time to eat. From a casual tasty meal of homemade tacos, Italian-style pizza, or grilled creations from Guy Fieri himself to extra-special delicacies from all cultures at the many specialty venues (serving Italian, American, and Asian), and practically everything in between, there is every food to suit your mood onboard Carnival Radiance. With so many incredible choices, from comfort food to sweet treats to salads, sandwiches, and beyond, you may even end up discovering a new favorite food! The main dining rooms serve delicious three-course meals and can make for a romantic venue while the indoor/outdoor Lido buffet is perfect for pleasing the whole family.

Ship Highlights

Big Chicken
Created by Carnival’s Chief Fun Officer, NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal, this exciting new complimentary restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner themed around fried chicken and its trusty classic side dishes. Even better, breakfast is served all day, so when it’s a “breakfast-for-dinner” type of night, you can guarantee you’ll find your egg fix here.

Waterworks
If you don’t mind being splashed, Carnival Radiance’s Waterworks aqua park is the most fun place to spend sunny afternoons. Tumble your way down the thrilling open Twister Waterslide, with over 200 feet of wet and wacky bends, or take a spin down the exciting AquaTunnel. Cool off quick beneath the 75-gallon Power Drencher tipping bucket! There’s even designated slides and spray toys for little ones who aren’t big enough to conquer the giant slides. It’s a great time for all ages!

Chefs Table
Ultra-luxurious dining begins at the Chefs Table, a limited VIP experience for just 14 guests onboard Carnival Radiance. This elegant three-course meal begins with sumptuous cocktails and hors d’oeuvres before hosting an exclusive of the galley. After seeing the ship’s meticulous chefs craft their masterpieces in action, you will sit down to a truly unique meal, not found on other menus. Reservations for this once-in-a-lifetime experience can be made once onboard.

Liquid Lounge
Aptly named for its fluidity, the Liquid Lounge is the hot spot for activities of all types onboard Carnival Radiance. Primarily serving as the ship’s main show lounge, this venue also hosts Playlist Productions (incredible musical acts with special LED effects), guest entertainers, lectures, bingo, game shows, dance classes, and children’s programming such as Towel Animal Theater. There is also a full-service bar for adults to enjoy their favorite drink alongside a classic or new activity/show.

Limelight Lounge
Cut loose into the wee hours of the evening with the fun-filled activities hosted at the Limelight Lounge. This venue is home to the Punchliner Comedy Club, the only place onboard that may induce tears (of laughter, of course). Karaoke also takes place here, so don’t be afraid to step out of your shell and sing out a heartfelt tune. Live music pairs perfectly with the expansive dance floor, where you can dance the night away. Late night, this venue transforms into a night club, where passionate DJs spin out a perfect combination of today’s hits and yesterday’s classics.

Family-Friendly
Carnival Radiance is an incredible choice for a family vacation. Families can easily enjoy each’s others company with joyous family-friendly activities and venues such as the Cherry On Top candy store (additional), Build-A-Bear Workshop at Sea (additional), mini-golf, the video arcade (additional), Seuss at Sea, Hasbro The Game Show, WaterWorks aqua park, SportSquare, CLUE: The Murder Mystery, and Dive-In Movies. When parents want a break and escape to their own time, Carnival’s incredible youth programs (Camp Ocean, Circle C, and Club O2) keep the kids safe, entertained, and educated with fun age-based games and activities. There is also evening sitting service for adults who want to enjoy a late night.

Pool Area
The pool deck onboard Carnival Radiance has everything you need for a typical pool day, plus more! Swim or splash in the large saltwater pool or take it easy in one of the warm bubbly hot tubs with a drink from the nearby Siren’s Bar. With mouthwatering food venues conveniently located nearby, you won’t have to wander far for food. Enjoy places such as Guy’s Burger Joint, BlueIguana Cantina or Pizzeria del Capitano. If none of those suit your cravings, you’re certain to find what you want in the Lido Marketplace. You can also enjoy the Seaside Theater, the huge poolside screen that shows fun programming during the day before converting into an outdoor cinema by night.

Your ticket to relaxation and rejuvenation awaits, as does big savings and exclusive offers. Call us now - we’re ready to assist you today!
