Carnival Victory will undergo a massive, nearly $200 million makeover in 2020, after which it will be renamed Carnival Radiance.
The refurb, which will see much of the ship completely revamped, will take place from March 18 to April 2020 in Cadiz, Spain. When it emerges, it will have a host of new entertainment features and dining options, along with all the popular venues it already has. The ship will also receive additional suites, to be added above the bridge, bringing the capacity of the ship to 2,984 from 2,764.
Carnival Radiance will feature complimentary main dining rooms, as well as the Lido Marketplace buffet. However, the buffet will be expanded to include stand-alone specialty counters such as Seafood Shack, offering lobster rolls and other New England-inspired seafood fare at a la carte prices, and Pizzeria del Capitano serving up several varieties of pies free of charge 24/7.
