Itineraries out of Port Canaveral for departures from Nov. 14, 2020 to Jan. 30, 2021 have been cancelled.
  • Carnival Radiance’s $two hundred million dry dock at the Cadiz, Spain shipyard was suspended this spring when the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a nationwide lockdown. Carnival is now analyzing shipyard selections to entire the transformation, but the ship is very likely not likely to be done until the spring.
