Carnival Cruise Line is set to complete the final phase of its $2 billion fleet enhancement program.
The project will conclude with a dry dock of the Carnival Victory ship, which Carnival will be transforming into the new Carnival Radiance.
Carnival Victory will undergo a 38-day dry dock in Spain before reentering service in 2020.
The company has not yet announced its homeport and itinerary details.
The massive fleet enhancement program has added a number of branded concepts to the company’s fleet, from the Guy’s Burger Joint and Guy’s Pig &: Anchor Smokehouse Barbecue, both inspired by Guy Fieri, to the Alchemy Bar and the Chef’s Table fine-dining eatery.
“We have been investing in our products, amenities and experience offerings at unprecedented levels which are driving higher results in guest satisfaction, passenger yields and onboard revenue,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.
“Our guests and travel agent partners can count on a high degree of consistency and quality vacation offerings across all our fleet and homeports regardless of what ship they’re sailing on. Ultimately, this effort is about driving demand by giving each and every guest a memorable vacation and offering a reason to come back to Carnival again and again.”
Carnival first launched the fleetwide project in 2011, having completed enhancements to more than 20 ships.
