The New Carnival Sunrise

Next spring the Carnival Triumph will be dry docked in Cadiz, Spain for what is said to be the priciest cruise ship makeover ever! After it’s extensive remodel, the cruise line plans to rechristen the vessel with a new name: Carnival Sunrise! You may remember that Carnival has tackled such a project once before when the Carnival Destiny was reborn as the Carnival Sunshine.

The makeover will include the addition of cabins, the revamping of all existing cabins and the redesign of two luxurious Captain's Suites adjacent to the navigational bridge offering floor-to-ceiling windows and extended balcony grand suites.

Also in the plans is the addition of a new  recreation area with a suspended ropes course, basketball court and miniature golf course. The ship also will get a new water park area with two massive slides!

New eateries include Cucina del Capitano, (an Italian restaurant that already is on many Carnival ships), Carnival's signature Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse, Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse, and Bonsai Express.

Guests can look forward to hanging out at the Red Frog Pub, Piano Bar 88, and the Limelight Lounge, home to the Punchliner Comedy Club.

Of course, this is just a sampling of what can be expected from the $200 million, two- month remodeling.

Carnival Sunrise's inaugural season begins in early spring 2019 from Norfolk. The ship will then reposition to New York for a series of four- to 14-day voyages beginning May 23, 2019.
