Carnival Cruise Line is suspending work on the Carnival Victory’s refurbishment in Spain. After a $200 million overhaul, the ship is to be renamed Carnival Radiance.
The ship is drydocked in the city of Cadiz. Carnival said that travel restrictions have made it difficult to secure workers.
The Carnival Radiance’s four European sailings and transatlantic crossings have been canceled and guests are being notified. The Radiance has been scheduled to make its debut on April 29 with a 10-day Mediterranean sailing from Barcelona.
The company did not give details on compensation for canceled cruises.
The Destiny-class vessel is to get 115 additional cabins and new bars, restaurant and kids clubs. The ship will accommodate 2,998 passengers at double occupancy when the work is done.
