Trip to Anywhere


Posted on 02/11/2020



A fun-tan is a good look on you. So slap on a little SPF and climb aboard Carnival Radiance, setting sail in 2020.

Carnival is adding so many great features to Carnival Victory that the ship will be practically glowing. All this fun, and a warm new name, will make Carnival Radiance an amazing new spot for some of the latest bars and pubs, sports activities, spa amenities and dining spots — like the first-ever Big Chicken restaurant at sea, serving up favorites from Shaq, Carnival’s Chief Fun Officer and huge fried chicken fan!

If you’re considering a cruise on Carnival Radiance or have already booked one (lucky you!), we know you’re excited about exploring exotic destinations like Bermudathe Caribbean or The Bahamas.


Indoor Fun 


On Carnival Radiance, there are so many fun things to do indoors as well as out in the sun. Take a seat at The Punchliner Comedy Club and you’ll soon be laughing your socks off. Some shows are family-friendly and some adult-only. You can choose which ones you attend! To help plan your evening, check the Fun Times — it’s delivered daily to your stateroom.

Guests of all ages will also enjoy the memorable Broadway-worthy singing, dancing and musical performances by Playlist Productions. These musical productions bring the unique experience of live theater to the open seas!

For the 21-and-older cruise crowd, Carnival Radiance presents a range of awesome bars, each with a distinct atmosphere. Perhaps you’re tempted by a tropical cocktail at RedFrog™ Rum Bar, a Caribbean-themed hot spot by the pool. Or maybe its frozen margaritas, cool cervezas and other favorites from Mexico that make you say si. If so, then grab a seat at BlueIguana™ Tequila Bar.Yet perhaps craft cocktails prepared by master mixologists are more your style and are also a specialty of Alchemy Bar.


Outdoor Fun 


Whether you cruise from New York, Norfolk, VA or Fort Lauderdale, it won’t be long before you’re soaking up the sun as it shines down on the decks of Carnival Radiance. From sunrise to sunset, embrace opportunities for outdoor fun such as splashing, swimming and soaring at Carnival WaterWorks™ onboard waterpark, featuring the Twister Waterslide™, which sends you smiling and swimming through the water for hundreds of feet, all the way to a major splash landing. Or, get your heart racing in a different way, high above the decks of Carnival Radiance. Challenge yourself to traverse the elevated obstacles at our thrilling, two-level ropes course. We promise it’s 100-percent safe, and 100-percent fun!

Spending time outdoors doesn’t always mean lots of action, it can also mean lots of relaxation. This sometimes involves leaving the kids behind, at least for a little while.

Send the youngsters to our child care programs and spend some time amid the peace and quiet of the Serenity Adult Only Retreat. This 21-plus-only zone offers plush seating, a full bar and the chance to enjoy the sunshine and sea breezes without interruption.


Delicious Dining 


With so much onboard action, a cruise vacation usually leads to a big appetite. From breakfast all the way through to late-night snacks, Carnival Radiance has you covered.

Standing out among a whole host of top-notch restaurants are Seafood Shack, inspired by the waterfront eateries of New England, and Big Chicken, the first ever chicken joint from Shaq, Carnival’s Chief Fun Officer. With chicken biscuits for breakfast, chicken strips and sandwiches for lunch and fried chicken baskets with plenty of sides for dinner, this all-day restaurant has the Shaq seal of approval.

Another celebrity, chef and television host Guy Fieri, has a restaurant on Carnival Radiance and is the name behind Guy’s Burger Joint, a casual burger and fries shack by the poolside. Check out the toppings bar and load up a fresh-off-the-grill burger however you like it.
