Your two night full board Wild West train adventure follows the Santa Fe Trail in true western spirit from Chicago passing through Kansas City, Dodge City, Comanche country and Apache Canyon on the way to Albuquerque. You'll be mesmerized by this region's beauty and allure, passing wheat fields and ranches, missions and pueblos, mountains and deserts. Carving through curving canyon passages only a few feet wider than the train itself, you'll see spectacular landscapes and pristine vistas not visible from interstate highways. This two night journey crosses two time zones & passes through Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona.

The Santa Fe Trail was first traversed by Indians who discovered the twists, turns & passes. Later, Spanish Conquistadors and fur trappers became familiar with the route. By the time it was called the Santa Fe Trail, caravans of pack mules, wagon teams, prairie schooners and stagecoaches were lumbering over it daily, carting goods and people between the Missouri River and the Pacific Coast. This route was instrumental in ending the Mexican–American Civil war and incorporating the territories of New Mexico and California into the United States of America. The Amtrak Southwest Chief Route owes its name to the original great Santa Fe iron horse, the Super Chief.

With a $200-million facelift that will see almost the entire ship reimagined. In fact, the changes will be so extreme, it will, for all intents and purposes, be an entirely new ship when it emerges. 

The ship will house all of the classic Carnival onboard activities, with upgrades, of course. At the WaterWorks aqua park aboard Carnival Radiance, there are two water slides over 200 feet long. And with room for nearly 3,000 passengers, there will be something fun for everyone! While sailing on this beautiful ship, you're guaranteed to not only have fun, but to be well-fed. Big Chicken, the fast casual eatery owned by Carnival's Chief Fun Officer Shaquille O'Neal, opened its first location at sea on Carnival Radiance, along with favorite Carnival dining options like Guy's Burger Joint, Cucina del Capitano, and the Seafood Shack.
