About Carnival Cruise Lines
The Carnival Corporation is the largest cruise company in the world and operates several different brands. The cruise line ‘Carnival Cruise Lines’ has the largest fleet in the group with 26 vessels. The fleet sails almost exclusively in the seas of North America and the Caribbean. For Carnival Cruise Lines the guest's experience of the ships is at least as important as the visited destinations. The concept is comparable to a club holiday and convinces an active, mostly younger audience. The ships offer a colorful world of experience including high-quality food, award-winning entertainment and excellent child and youth care. On board you will find mostly Americans.
The Carnival Radiance, which was freshly renovated in 2020, has space for almost 3,000 passengers and offers a colourful, entertaining world of experience on the high seas. Alone 14 restaurants and 11 bars and lounges are waiting to spoil you with culinary delights. Get your energy up with spinning, fitness, yoga or in the high ropes course before enjoying massages in the spa area. This way you can fully enjoy the evening programme from show to comedy club, theatre to discotheque.

Compared to other shipping companies, Carnival has very spacious inside staterooms. In some staterooms there are additional fold-out duvets or sofa beds available, making them ideal for families. The outside staterooms have large panoramic windows, which offer a wonderful view of the sea and the respective destinations. If you stay in a balcony cabin, you will find that the possibility of sitting outside, relaxing and enjoying your own privacy while admiring the scenery as it glides past, adds to the special cruise experience. The staterooms have a window and a private balcony and are equipped with two foldaway single beds or one queen size bed. Furthermore, Carnival offers various suites, such as junior suites, ocean suites or grand suites.
Atmosphere on board
Carnival Cruise Lines emphasizes the entertainment onboard and yes: it is very difficult not to be entertained on board. But this does not mean that passengers will feel disturbed by wildly partying people all day. There is enough room to relax and enjoy some quietness. The dress-code reflects this concept: casual attire is perfect for almost any situation. Only for dinner in the main restaurants a more elegant style is recommended. There are even one or two festive evenings, where evening dress is required, but you may easily escape this when not dining in the à la carte restaurants. Though guests come from all over the world, usually most people on board are US citizens.
The gastronomy on board Carnival Radiance is very diverse and flexible. This is ideal for families with small children. The buffet restaurant offers international specialities, desserts, sandwich variations, chopsticks and menus for figure-conscious guests. For the small hunger in between, the Guy's Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que or a burger from Guy's Burger Joint is perfect. The Kid's Menus should also delight demanding children. For a sophisticated dinner, we recommend a visit to the à la carte restaurant with free choice of meal times. The ambience is as appealing as the fantastic panoramic view.
Entertainment, sports & relaxation3>
Depending on age, there are various clubs and camps where children are optimally looked after and get to know playmates of the same age. Entertainment for the time spent together on board is provided by the great shows à la Las Vegas in the elegant Liquid Lounge. This is also where attractions such as Bingo and the Hasbro - The Game Show take place. The Carnival's Seaside Theatre on the Lido Deck is popular. The latest blockbusters from Hollywood, sports broadcasts and concerts can be enjoyed in the open air.
Children on board
Travelers under the age of 21 must be accompanied by a parent, grandparent or legal guardian who is at least 25 years old and staying in the same stateroom. Young people under the age of 21 are not permitted to consume alcohol. Traveling babies must be at least six months (twelve months for Atlantic crossings and cruises to Hawaii and South America) to be allowed on the cruise. Please note that the legal guardians are responsible for the safety and behavior of underage passengers on board.

Kids & Teens are looked after in the following clubs: Camp Carnival (from 2 to 11 years) Circle “C” (from 12 to 14 years) Club O2 (from 15 to 17 years)
The shore excursions can be booked online before the trip (from 3 months to a maximum of 3 days before the trip) or on board at the excursion office.

The great cuisine, diversified entertainment options as well as the appealing and modern interior make the Carnival Radiance a destination in itself. This ship demonstrates impressively what is possible on cruise ships nowadays.
