On a cruise ship
Carnival Radiance: Getaways to Ensenada and Catalina Island
Carnival Radiance, formerly Carnival Victory, has been reengineered and reimagined from stem to stern for short jaunts out of Long Beach, Calif., to Catalina Island and Ensenada, Mexico, where cruisers can enjoy beaches, shopping and excursions. The ship debuts on Nov. 5, 2021.
On board, Radiance has WaterWorks for the young and young at heart as well as SportSquare, Seuss at Sea and the Serenity Adult Only Retreat. The ship also offers spa treatments at Cloud 9 Spa and arts and crafts at Make it with Michael's, among other activities.
Dining is varied, with options for families as well as a special evening just for the two of you. Start at the Dining Room for a cruise staple and branch out to Bonsai Sushi, the Chef's Table, Cucina del Capitano and The Carnival Deli. Don't forget the evening activities for all ages, with RedFrog Pub, The Punchline Comedy Club, karaoke and the MegaBeach Party.
Where Carnival Radiance sails
Carnival Radiance is a good choice for inexpensive, short getaways from the LA area to the tourist attractions of Catalina Island and Ensenada, Mexico.
