Carnival Radiance Will No Longer Sail to Italy

The Carnival Victory is currently undergoing a major $200 million transformation dry dock in Cadiz, Spain into the Carnival Radiance. When the new look vessel debuts towards the end of April it won’t be visiting the ports which were first scheduled due to the deadly coronavirus which is also known a COVID-19.

The cruise line has announced a change to the vessel’s Meditteranean itineraries which will kick off on April 29 out of Barcelona, Spain. Italian ports of call have been replaced with alternatives and this impacted the cruises departing on April 29, May 9, May 21, May 30. Here is the newly revised itinerary for each of those sailings:
