Works on cruise ship at Navantia yard suspended
The transformation of the 'Carnival Victory' into the refurbished 'Carnival Radiance' at the Navantia yard in Cádiz was suspended and the European cruises that the ship was going to make were canceled. Carnival Cruise Line made the decision based on the stop of shipyard activity and the travel restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now Carnival has had problems repatriating the 1,500 workers from 60 different countries who were on board to work on the ship while Navantia was trying to reschedule lost jobs for the summer. Start of March, the 'Carnival Victory' set sail from Miami to Cádiz for a stay of 38 days in dry dock to become the 'Carnival Radiance' after a refurbishment of USD 200 million that considered the total renovation of the ship. Regarding the itineraries of the 'Carnival Radiance', after being remodeled, the ship was scheduled to debut in Barcelona on April 29 on a 10-day maiden voyage, and then start nine and 12-day Mediterranean cruises. The ship would later relocate to New York to offer four to nine-day cruises to Bermuda, the Caribbean, and eastern Canada, as well as five to seven-day trips from Norfolk.
