Carnival Victory sailed its last cruise last February, but the ship’s conversion was delayed by more than a year due to the pandemic. The ship is currently in dry dock and is undergoing massive renovations. It will appear as Carnival Radiance.
What will be added to the cruise ship in the month-long dry dock?
New offerings added to Carnival Radiance during the bow to stern renovation include Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse, run by Food Network star and long-time partner Guy Fieri, Italian family restaurant Cucina del Capitano, Bonsai Sushi and the Caribbean-inspired RedFrog Pub.
All public areas of the cruise ship will also be updated, including the WaterWorks aqua park, youth facilities, retail outlets, the Cloud 9 Spa, the SportSquare outdoor recreational complex with a high ropes course and a new Liquid Lounge where the Carnival Cruise Line award will be presented.

For those looking to take a trip back in time on Carnival Victory, here’s a nine-minute video tour of the cruise ship.
This isn’t the first cruise ship Carnival has renamed after radical ship transformations. Carnival Destiny has been renamed Carnival Sunshine and Carnival Triumph now sails as Carnival Sunrise.
Carnival Radiance will debut later this year, sailing three- and four-night short cruises from Long Beach, California.
