The Ultimate Guide to Carnival Sunrise

Cruising with Carnival is about to be even better. After 19 years cruising, the ever-popular vessel Carnival Triumph® is about to get a dramatic makeover. Transformed and renamed as Carnival Sunrise.

Carnival Sunrise is everything you loved about Carnival Triumph, plus a whole lot more. Exciting new dining spots, bars and pubs, sports activities, and spa are ready to make your cruise extraordinary.

Here are some of the upgrades and new adventures you’ll find on Carnival Sunrise’s sunny new debut:

Outdoor Fun

Our ultimate guide to Carnival Sunrise starts with outdoor fun, of course!

For starters, grab your suit and head over to Carnival’s famed onboard waterpark, WaterWorks, for great slides, rides and plenty of fun in the sun. Whether for fitness or just for fun, SportSquare gets you in the game. Make new friends over a game of basketball, challenge yourself on the fitness equipment, or play a round of mini golf with family.

Soar to new heights while enjoying the sea breeze and an ocean view! Our deck-top ropes course is ready to challenge and thrill you. Or, how about a round of fun-for-all-ages open-air mini golf? The perfect way to spend a few hours while you’re cruising to the Caribbean, The Bahamas or any other exotic destination.

If all you want is to sit back and enjoy the ocean breeze, experience a completely different world at the Serenity Adult Only Retreat™. This 21+ exclusive area is your vacation in a vacation. Enjoy a drink in the bar, flop onto a comfy chair with a book, or just relax in a hot tub and do nothing.

Indoor Fun

When it’s time for some shade, there is plenty of indoor fun to be had on Carnival Sunrise as well.

There’s no place on earth like a comedy club. On Carnival Sunrise, it’s even better. Get ready for sidesplitting laughs and tell-it-like-it-is comedy at Punchliner Comedy Club. Both family-friendly and adult-only shows! Karaoke fans will love Piano Bar 88, where you pick the tunes and everyone can sing along. Not a singer? No worries, this is a great spot to just sit back and watch the fun.

When the clock strikes cocktail hour, head to the RedFrog Pub® to make some new friends. Enjoy light bites (Caribbean fare) in a laid-back atmosphere. You might even catch some live music or a game of foosball. Speaking of eating and drinking, give in to the sweet desire of ice cream, candy, and other treats. Calories don’t count when you’re on a cruise vacation! Pro tip: Cherry on Top is also a great spot for buying gifts. And for those times when you’ve just got to have that morning (or afternoon) cup of Joe, there is JavaBlue. This cafe is serving great iced and hot drinks and yummy snacks.

Is it relaxation you’re after? Cloud 9 Spa has everything you need to take your vacation to the next level. Massages, facials, body wraps, thermal suites – at Cloud 9 you’ve got it all.
