Carnival Victory is a Destiny-class cruise ship operated by Carnival Cruise Line. She will be the last of the three Destiny-class ships to undergo a refit and rename. The ship will be renamed as Carnival Radiance, and she will be homeported in Long Beach, California.

Construction

Carnival Victory was built by Fincantieri at its Monfalcone shipyard in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, northern Italy,

Carnival Victory was launched on 31 December 1998 and later christened by Mary Frank, wife of Howard Frank, the then Vice-Chairman of Carnival Cruise Line. At the time of her launch, she was one of the largest cruise ships of her era.

Design

Machinery

The ship is powered by four GMT Sulzer 16 ZAV and two GMT Sulzer 12 ZAV diesel-electric engines driving two controllable pitch propellers. She is fitted with two rudders (which can be individually controlled) as well as stabilizers.

Layout

Carnival Victory is themed by American designer and architect Joseph Farcus to depict the different oceans and seas of the world.

Like Carnival Sunrise (formerly Carnival Triumph), her architecture is different from sister ship Carnival Destiny (now Carnival Sunshine). The two newer vessels have additional balcony cabins on their Lido decks and various changes to placement and architecture of public areas. There are three large pools and a 214-foot-long (65 m) waterslide.

She has a nine-deck atrium with four glass elevators, a three-deck lounge with seating for 1,500, and a total capacity of 3,400 passengers and 1,000 crew members.

On 16 October 2018, Carnival Cruise Line announced that the ship will enter drydock on 18 March 2020 in Cadiz, Spain. She left for Cadiz on 4 March 2020 after her final voyage as Carnival Victory.

She was planned to leave drydock on 26 April 2020 after receiving a $200 million refurbishment, but work was halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic until the end of the year. The ship is currently docked in Cadiz, undergoing preliminary construction and the refurbishment is due to be completed in April 2021.

Operation

Throughout her service, Carnival Victory has been based in Miami in the United States sailing year-round on alternating three- and four-night cruises to Caribbean destinations. On 23 July 2020, Carnival announced that Carnival Radiance's new homeport will be Long Beach, California instead of Port Canaveral, Florida as previously announced in 2018.
