Carnival Sunrise Cruise Review by musicleader

  • Sail Date: Sep 2019
  • Destination: Bermuda
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

The new season for the Sunrise (aka Triumph), ok, lets break it down into a few areas.

First shout out to the crew, they were wonderful, the whole trip were always upbeat and gracious as always.

Second, the food we found to be cooked to our liking, and we always had our fill.

Cruise Director-Mikey and staff most enjoyable we have encountered in 6 years of sailing. Especially having to make back up plans for 3 of the sailing days. Also he was very clear when he gave any instructions we needed to know.

Entertainment- was refreshing to watch shows that wasn't the same thing we have seen on the Pride for the past 6 years.

Now, for the flip side, for a ship that just went through a major over haul, some areas were sorely overlooked. And some of the deck plans weren't thought out very well, For example, deck 3 to get to the Aft Dining Room, you have to go up to Deck 5 and take the aft elevator (which most of the time only 2 of the 4 were working) back down to 3,

The Carnival Hub App was a nice tool to have, sure you can bypass making your table reservation for the Aft Dining room on 5, but you can't request a specific table or server from the app, which in turn means you have a different server every night.

The balcony rooms seem smaller than the other ships, there was only 1 night stand beside the bed, and the other side was about 7 inches from the wall/window to the balcony.

Finally- with Carnival have a home port in Charleston, SC, you'd think that maybe they could have found more than 5 excursions for the guest to choose from when the docked there as an alternative port (since Bermuda was not an option).
