Carnival Radiance Leaves Shipyard
After over a year of dry dock delays, Carnival Radiance is finally out of the shipyard and en route for North America.
The vessel’s major transformation from Carnival Victory into Radiance wrapped earlier this month, and she is now expected to arrive in Freeport, Bahamas on October 27. There, Carnival will begin staffing the ship and the crew will start their two-week quarantine.
On December 13, Carnival Radiance is set to begin sailing to Mexico from Long Beach, California.
