This ship was recently renovated and rebranded as the sunrise from the previous triumph. The renovations were nice and elegant. The food was great, entertainment was spectacular, especially Mikey Gibson as a cruise director. He was full of energy and so much fun. Perfect for a cruise that had very upset passengers due to hurricane humberto changing the whole itinerary from 3 days in bermuda to we didnt reach any foreign ports at all except for a 6 hour stay in Charleston, south carolina.
the renovations were elegant however and i was always skeptical of how a 2 month dry dock comes out without issues. Well this ship has alot.
- The elevators are a complete disaster and numerous times got stuck and would be shut down. Some of them would open and close several times before finally going to the floor you desired.
-i have always viewed and read comments here on cruise critic but never replied or posted a review and always felt there were just negative people out there trolling. Well this was the first time that i did indeed smell sewage/garbage in any elevator that you use in the AFT of the ship near the piano bar and alchemy bar on deck 5.
- Deck 2 we had plumbing issues, where we couldn't flush the toilet and the shower had no hot water. I belong to carnival groups on other social sites and people on my same cruise had the issues on other decks.
-there were busted seats in the liquid lounge/theatre. Also a busted seat in the redfrog bar on the lido deck.
-outside an elevator i saw panels on the wall being held up by packing tape!
-white paint was pealing off corner railings in the buffet marketplace and you can see the gold trim that was painted over with white.
- automatic doors into buffet is not automatic you need to push a button. Stupid and makes no sense if you have you hands full of food how do you press the button
-glass automatic door coming off the lido pool area onto deck 9 would constantly get stuck!!
Just seemed like a horribly rushed renovations. Carnival should take their time and look everything over.
Also why didnt the sunrise receive the same 3 deck serenity and waterfall as sunshine her sister ship. That was such a wow factor!!
