Carnival Sunrise (formerly Carnival Triumph) is second in the Sunshine-Class of cruise ships. As she and her three younger sisters are each a redesigned version of the lead ship in the class, she is sometimes referred to as the first of the Triumph-class of cruise ships. Along with her sisters Carnival Sunshine and Carnival Victory, she is operated by Carnival Cruise Line. Carnival Sunrise will be homeported in Norfolk, Virginia, New York City, New York, and Fort Lauderdale, Florida following her drydock.

Built by Fincantieri at its Monfalcone shipyard in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, northern Italy, she was floated out on October 23, 1999, and christened by Madeline Arison, wife of Micky Arison, the then CEO of Carnival Cruise Line. Following her $200 million drydock in Cadiz, Spain, she will be rechristened as Carnival Sunrise. She came to media attention in 2013 when an engine room fire stranded her at sea for several days with a loss of power that crippled not only her propulsion, but also support systems.

Design

Carnival Sunrise is 893 feet 4 inches (272.3 m) long and has a beam of 116 feet 6 inches (35.5 m). Fully laden, she draws 27 feet 3 inches (8.3 m) of water. The vessel's gross tonnage, which is a measure of volume and not of weight, is 101,509.

Carnival Sunrise has a diesel-electric propulsion system in which the main generators provide electricity for all shipboard functions from propulsion motors to hotel systems such as air conditioning and lighting. Her power plant consists of six diesel generating sets, four 16-cylinder Wärtsilä-Sulzer 16ZAV40S and two 12-cylinder 12ZAV40S medium-speed diesel engines. Her two 17.6-megawatt electric propulsion motors and controllable pitch propellers give the ship a maximum speed of 22.5 knots (41.7 km/h; 25.9 mph) and a service speed of about 20 knots (37 km/h; 23 mph). For maneuvering at ports, Carnival Sunrise has six transverse thrusters. She was completed and entered service in 1999.

In 2019, she docked in Cadiz, Spain to undergo a $200 Million refurbishment. She was renamed Carnival Sunrise on completion of the refit. The ship will be officially named by Kelly Arison, who is a daughter of Carnival Corporation Chairman - Micky Arison. The ceremony will take place on May 23 in New York.

Itineraries

Carnival Sunrise will undertake cruises in 2019-2020 from Norfolk, VA, New York City, and Fort Lauderdale, FL.
