As part of a new industry trend to reimagine its aging ships, Carnival Cruise Line completely transformed its 1999-era Triumph in March 2019, investing $200 million in a two-month stem-to-stern refurbishment. Re-branded as Sunrise, the 2,984-passenger vessel has added new restaurants, lounges, and 100 more staterooms, among other renovations.
The cruise line maximized previously underused space on Sunrise's top decks by adding a SportSquare complex, as well as the popular WaterWorks slides and splash areas. Additionally, the retrofit introduced upscale specialty eateries like Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse, Java Blue Cafe, Seafood Shack, Bonsai Sushi Express, and a new intimate dining experience called Chef's Table. You'll also find Pizzeria del Capitano, a complimentary pizza restaurant, along with newly expanded Swirls ice cream areas. The new Piano Bar 88 features by-request sing-alongs, while the RedFrog Pub serves up Carnival's signature ThirstyFrog Red ale. The pub also also offers fun bar games and trivia competitions.
