Yesterday, Carnival Cruise Line announced a monster $200 million renovation that will transform Carnival Triumph into Carnival Sunrise.  The cruise ship is scheduled to go into dry dock in March 2019 where the entire ship will undergo a radical transformation.

In addition to the many new public areas (restaurants, lounges etc), Carnival Cruise Line is adding 115 new staterooms on the cruise ship.  From new suites to six Scenic Ocean View staterooms, here is a rundown of the stateroom changes that will be on Carnival Sunrise.

  1. Looking at the new deck plan it appears that to make room for these 115 new cabins the buffet is smaller and the lounge at the rear of the ship is gone and cabins added there . Neither of these changes would seem to me be improvements ,just more revenue for Carnival. We always liked the Triumph will have to wait and see about the Sunshine right now with no first hand knowledge don’t think we will like her anymore.
