Carnival Announces Return To Europe In 2020 Following An Important Drydock

Carnival Announces Return To Europe In 2020 Following An Important Drydock

Carnival Cruise Line has just revealed it is returning to Europe for a handful of Mediterranean cruises in 2020!

This will follow Carnival Radiance’s $200 million drydock in late April 2020.

The ship is currently sailing as Carnival Victory and will come out of the 10-day drydock in Cadiz, Spain, with a 10-day Mediterranean sailing from Barcelona.

This will be followed by nine- and 12-day departures visiting top destinations throughout the region, including Italy, France, Croatia, Greece, Malta and Spain.

She will then embark on a 13-day transatlantic crossing from Barcelona to New York from 11th to 24th June 2020, positioning the vessel for its inaugural season in New York.

Carnival Radiance will also offer guests:

-Nine-night Cuba cruises from New York in June 2020

-A series of four- and six-night Bermuda cruises

-Eight-night Eastern Caribbean sailings

-A number of Canada/New England cruises in the autumn to ports like Boston, Portland, Saint John and Halifax

-A four-night cruise to Saint John, New Brunswick in the summer

The ship will then reposition to Port Canaveral where it will offer a winter season of six- to eight-night Caribbean and Cuba cruises beginning November 8th 2020.

These sailings include:

-Six-night Cuba cruises with overnights in Havana

-Six-night sailings that include Grand Cayman and Amber Cove

-Seven- and eight-night Southern and Eastern Caribbean cruises to Aruba, Curacao, St. Kitts and Grand Turk

Meanwhile, Carnival Sunrise will undergo its major refurbishment in March 2019 before sailing the line’s voyages to Cuba from New York beginning May 21st 2020.

These cruises will span nine nights and including an overnight call in Havana with stops in Half Moon Cay and Nassau.

“We want to offer Cuba from more homeports,” Carnival’s COO Gus Antorcha has stated.

“There is demand for those itineraries… It also opens up different types of ports and itineraries for past guests.”

Once Carnival Sunrise and Carnival Radiance re-launch, they will both feature a host of exciting onboard amenities: from refreshed cabins to waterslides and ropes courses.

Carnival Radiance will also debut the all-new Big Chicken restaurant helmed by Carnival’s own Chief Fun Officer, Shaquille O’Neal.
