Carnival Cruise Line will spend nearly $200 million on a major makeover of the 1999-built Carnival Triumph. The bow-to-stern renovation will add a number of new Carnival branded food, beverage and entertainment options, as well as updates to all staterooms.

The nearly 20-year-old ship will enter drydock in Cadiz, Spain for a two-month-long refurbishment staring March 1, 2019. Afterwards, the ship will join Carnival's Sunshine class and will be named Carnival Sunrise.

Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, said, "The introduction of Carnival Sunrise will provide our guests with an array of exciting dining, bar and entertainment choices. The new Carnival Sunrise is part of our multibillion-dollar ship enhancement program that is transforming our fleet on an unprecedented scale."

Following a renaming ceremony, Carnival Sunrise will reenter service with a series of five- to seven-day voyages from Norfolk, Va., beginning April 29, a summer schedule of four- to 14-day departures from New York commencing May 23, then move to Fort Lauderdale in October.
