Carnival Cruise Line announces makeover for Carnival Triumph cruise ship


She will be renamed Carnival Sunrise

Carnival Cruise Line has announced plans for a major makeover for Carnival Triumph cruise ship.

The $200 million bow-to-stern makeover will take place in the spring of 2019 and will include renaming the ship. She 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.

The dry dock makeover will add all of Carnival's popular branded food, beverage and entertainment innovations, as well as update all staterooms in a broad spectrum of new accommodations providing guests with exciting seagoing vacation choices.


Following a renaming ceremony, Carnival Sunrise will re-enter service with a series of five- to seven-day voyages from Norfolk, Va., 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.

Carnival Triumph is a 272m cruise ship built by Fincantieri and launched in 1999.
