Carnival Sunrise has officially returned to the Caribbean following a $200 million renovation.

The ship is sailing a range of four- to 14-day Caribbean voyages throughout the season, with the first four coming out of Norfolk’s Decker Half Moone Cruise Center.

“The introduction of Carnival Sunrise brings an incredibly enhanced ship to our guests with all of the popular features from across our fleet,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.  “We couldn’t be more proud to introduce Carnival Sunrise in Norfolk.” 

The renovation added a variety of food, beverage and entertainment innovations, as well as stateroom upgrades.

New casual food and beverage options include Guy’s Burger Joint and Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse, in collaboration with Food Network star and longtime partner Guy Fieri; BlueIguana Cantina & Tequila Bar; RedFrog Rum Bar; as well as upgrades to the Lido Marketplace; an expanded ice cream station; the Java Blue coffee bar and 24-hour Pizzeria del Capitano.

New specialty dining options include The Chef’s Table fine dining experience, the cocktail pharmacy-themed Alchemy Bar, as well as Italian, sushi and seafood options.

That’s along with a new waterpark with slides and a kiddie splash zone, a Serenity adults-only retreat and a SportSquare recreation area with ropes course and mini golf.

Theater and live entertainment additions include The Punchliner Comedy Club in the new Limelight Lounge, Playlist Productions shows in the Liquid Lounge, deck parties, onboard programming and a sing-along piano bar.

Two Captain’s Suites have undergone redesigns, and all staterooms have been updated, according to the company.
