Carnival Cruise Line, part of Carnival Corporation, revealed plans for a nearly USD 200 million bow-to-stern makeover for Carnival Triumph in the spring of 2019.

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 March 1.

Following the renaming, Carnival Sunrise will re-enter service with a series of five- to seven-day voyages from Norfolk, Virginia, beginning April 29, 2019, a summer schedule of four- to 14-day departures from New York commencing May 23, 2019, then move to Fort Lauderdale in October.

The dry dock makeover will add all of Carnival’s wildly popular branded food, beverage and entertainment innovations, as well as update all staterooms.

“The new Carnival Sunrise is part of our multi-billion-dollar ship enhancement program that is transforming our fleet on an unprecedented scale,” Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, said.
