Carnival Cruise Line has revealed plans for a nearly $200 million bow-to-stern makeover for Carnival Triumph in the spring of 2019 that will include renaming the ship to reflect its significant transformation.
The ship will join Carnival’s Sunshine class and will be named Carnival Sunrise after a two-month-long refurbishment that will take place in Cadiz, Spain, starting 01 March 2019. The makeover will see all of the cruise line’s wildly popular branded food, beverage and entertainment innovations added to the ship, as well as updates to all staterooms.
Carnival Sunrise will re-enter service with a series of five- to seven-day voyages from Norfolk, Virginia commencing from 29 April 2019. This will be followed by a summer schedule of four to 14-day departures from New York from 23 May 2019, before the ship will move to Fort Lauderdale in October.
Christine Duffy, President, Carnival Cruise Line, said: “The introduction of Carnival Sunrise will provide our guests with an array of exciting dining, bar and entertainment choices. The new Carnival Sunrise is part of our multi-billion-dollar ship enhancement program that is transforming our fleet on an unprecedented scale”.
Enhancements being added to the ship will include the installation of two luxurious Captain’s Suites directly above to the navigational bridge on Deck 9, offering floor-to-ceiling windows and an extended balcony. A total of 115 new staterooms will be added. All of the ship’s current staterooms will be updated to offer island-inspired interiors with bright colours and soothing pastels inspired by the Carnival Cruise Line’s Caribbean itineraries.
Other new features on board Carnival Sunrise will include:
Food Glorious Food!
Raising the Bar
Open-Air Fun and Relaxation
Expanded Cloud 9 Spa and More
