Carnival’s Cruise Ship Upgrade/Dry Dock Schedule 2023-2025

Every few years, Carnival Cruise Line sends their cruise ships to dry dock for routine maintenance and to add new features on the vessels. Older ships are sent to dry dock every three years with newer vessels going once every five years on average.
Carnival Cruise Line's ship upgrade/dry dock schedule
When cruise ships go into dry dock, they not only receive routine maintenance to keep the ships running in top shape, but also get cosmetic changes like new carpet, lighting, wall coverings, tile work, more power outlets in cabins etc. New restaurants and features are often added, especially to older ships that have more limited options for dining.

Here is Carnival Cruise Line’s current upgrade/dry dock schedule through the end of 2025.  Carnival currently has eight cruise ships scheduled to head to the shipyard over the next 30 months.  All dates were verified with Carnival Cruise Line as of August 2023.
