Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis that is affecting the world and subsequently causing a sudden halt to the cruise industry.
Carnival Cruise Line has had to make some extra measures to protect the cruise line including reducing the number of crew and team members on each ship.
At present the Carnival Victory is currently docked in the port of Cadez, Spain awaiting its much anticipated dry dock and transformation to the Carnival Radiance.
The ship was expected to be begin a 38-day dry dock at the shipyard in Cadiz, Spain on March 19, how ever due to COVID-19 outbreaks around the world work has yet to get fully underway.
Carnival Cruise Line was due to debut the Carnival Radiance with a 10-day cruise from Barcelona, Spain on April 29, 2020. Following her Spanish debut it was then expected to sail to New York arriving in the big apple on June 25.
However so much has changed in the course of a month and I Like Cruise Ships has found out that Carnival has started to man down its ships, including the Carnival Victory.
