Carnival Sunrise Review

Review of Carnival Sunrise

Carnival Sunrise cruise ship was built as "Carnival Triumph", with a maiden voyage on October 30, 1999. After a major refurbishment in 2013 (Fun Ship 2.0), the liner received a second emergency backup generator and top-notch fire detection technology. The Triumph was also re-decorated; with added new bars, lounges and entertainment options. As vessel class, Carnival Triumph is second of all three Destiny-class sisterships - together with Destiny-Sunshine and Victory-Radiance.

IMPORTANT: Due to the global Coronavirus crisis, Carnival Sunrise was taken out of service in 2020-2021, and planned to restart cruises on March 3, 2022 (2-night itinerary out of PortMiami to Nassau Bahamas).

  • A total of 92x Carnival Sunrise cruises scheduled for the period between November 5, 2020, and April 30, 2022, were cancelled. The cancelled program was based on homeporting in Fort Lauderdale (Nov 2020 - May 2021) and Miami (May 2021 - Apr 2022).
  • The cancelled Fort Lauderdale cruise schedule included roundtrips to Western Caribbean (5-day Ocho Rios Jamaica and Grand Cayman), Bahamas (4-day Half Moon Cay and Nassau), Eastern Caribbean (5-day Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay, Nassau) plus a 6-day Eastern Caribbean itinerary visiting Amber Cove, Grand Turk Island and Half Moon Cay.
  • The cancelled Miami cruise schedule included roundtrips to Eastern Caribbean (8-day Half Moon Cay, St Thomas USVI, San Juan Puerto Rico, Amber Cove Dominican Rep), Eastern Caribbean (7-day Grand Turk, San Juan Puerto Rico, St Thomas USVI, Amber Cove), Eastern Caribbean (6-day Half Moon Cay, Grand Turk, Amber Cove), Eastern Caribbean (5-day Grand Turk, Princess Cays, Nassau), Southern Caribbean (8-day Half Moon Cay, Grand Turk, Aruba, Curacao), Western Caribbean (7-day Grand Cayman, Roatan, Belize City, Cozumel).

History - construction and ownership

Carnival Cruise Lines (CCL) is a US company, trademarked brand and subsidiary of Carnival Corporation (shipowner). CCL was founded in 1972 as an independent company by Ted Arison (1924-1999, co-founder of NCL Norwegian). Carnival Cruise Lines has Corporation's largest fleet as both a number of vessels and GT tonnage (ship sizes and capacities). CCL has over 1/5 of the cruise industry's worldwide market.

Carnival Sunrise cruise ship (Carnival Triumph)

The 101,509-ton, 2,758-passenger Carnival Triumph's theme was ”Great Cities of the World”. In 2019 (March-April) the ship entered drydock for ~USD 200 million refurbishment, after which it was renamed "Carnival Sunrise". The refitted liner was transformed into Sunshine-Class vessel - having the same facilities and amenities as the sistership Carnival Sunshine (former Carnival Destiny, refitted in 2013 for USD 155 million).

Shipboard entertainment options - Fun and Sport

Carnival made a heavy investment in lights and sound for its shows on Carnival Breeze and has taken a step further on Sunrise. An ultra-HD graphics package is beamed onto a vast screen and the performers use it as a backdrop of their show. A number of themed shows take place in ship's Liquid Lounge, which doubles as the 800-seat main Theater. Because the room was initially designed as a theater with two stories, it's impossible to feature an intimate atmosphere.

The Sunrise ship offers a complete list of activities and entertainment for each age group and taste - from ballroom scene dancing, classical music concerts, tea time and art auctions to a hairy chest and knobby knees contests, bingo, and karaoke.

In comparison to Carnival Sunshine, Sunrise has smaller-sized WaterWorks located midship (aft on Sunshine).

Carnival Sunrise Wiki

Triumph was Carnival's first-ever liner with mobile phone systems ("Cellular At Sea" by Wireless Maritime Services). This partnership (between AT&T and MTN Sat / Maritime Telecommunications Network) allowed passengers to use their cell phones at sea to call directly at any time.

The Triumph ship was christened by godmother Madeleine Arison - wife of Micky Arison (Carnival Corporation's Chairman). This is a Post-Panamax vessel (can't pass through Panama Canal), launched on July 1 and with inaugural cruise/maiden voyage on October 30, 1999. Ship's interior design theme is "Great Cities of the World". Fun Ship 2.0 upgrade was done in 2013.

Fun fact is that this Carnival ship had a namesake - the 2017-launched "MOL Triumph". The vessel is among world's largest container ships (capacity 20170 containers) and operated by MOL Shipping.

Sunrise ship's godmother is Kelly Arison - daughter of Micky Arison. Vessel's christening ceremony was on May 23, 2019, held at Manhattan Cruise Passenger Terminal in Port NYC New York. The naming ceremony featured a 4-ft (1,2-m) high champagne bottle sculpture (filled with confetti) which was custom-made by Romero Britto (1963-born Brazilian artist).

Sunrise ship's Captains are Bruno Palomba (during the drydock) and Isidoro Renda (after the launch). Captain Isidoro Renda (Italian, Naples-graduate) is with Carnival since 2010 (starting as Second Officer) and Captain since 2016. Its previous service was with TIRRENIA Ferries and MSC Cruises. Ship's other officers include Mauro Fabbrini (Chief Engineer), Nicola Tonelli (Chief Engineer), Caroline Bourke (Hotel Director).
