The warmth of being together is so nice, isn't it? In fact, this inspired us to create Carnival Radiance to delight people like you and your closest travel buddies. Believe it or not, Carnival Radiance makes it all possible with a little help from a few friends...

For starters, can we just say how excited we are to be tipping things off with the culinary influence of Shaq? This man knows his fried chicken, and in case you have any doubt, every meal we serve at Big Chicken puts the proof on your plate. Still on the taste tip, there’s two delicious spots on Carnival Radiance from Mr. Fieri himself: Guy’s Burger Joint and Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse. We’re not going to apologise for all the bragging about our famous friends. Not when there’s so much onboard fun for kids courtesy of Dr. Seuss® favourites like The Cat in the Hat… who you’ll meet! And with all the flavour from our own homegrown RedFrog and BlueIguana spots — like tacos, pub grub and great drinks — you’ll be thrilled to get acquainted with such colourful creatures. (And the cuddly ones at Build-A-Bear Workshop® At Sea!)

Celebrities aren't the only ones who need to know about Carnival Radiance. The Playlist Productions™ stage has great entertainment and his SportSquare™ with SkyCourse™ offers plenty of chances to become a champion. And the Serenity™ Adults-Only Retreat holds endless possibilities for adult relaxation. There are also plenty of places for grown-ups to enjoy drinks, including his fan-favorite Alchemy Bar™ and Heroes Tribute™ Bar, where you can refresh while paying tribute to the men and women of the military. Don't worry about your children. There are three youth areas for hanging out with peers, and even offers authentic his Zumbini™ classes for the little ones.

But while we're on the subject, the entire Carnival Radiance group never runs out of things to do. Here are some of the most famous: Dive-In Movies™ puts everyone's favorite movies poolside and Mini Golf is guaranteed to sink a hole-in-some... -Family Did you choose a comedy for Doing a show at the Punchliner™ Comedy Club?

We are so excited that Carnival Radiance brings all this fun together...the emphasis is on 'together'. (And it's fun!) Join us!
