About Carnival Cruise Line
The Carnival Corporation is the largest cruise company in the world and operates several different brands. The cruise line ‘Carnival Cruise Lines’ has the largest fleet in the group with 24 vessels. The fleet sails almost exclusively in the seas of North America and the Caribbean. For Carnival Cruise Lines the guest's experience of the ships is at least as important as the visited destinations. The concept is comparable to a club holiday and convinces an active, mostly younger audience. The ships offer a colorful world of experience including high-quality food, award-winning entertainment and excellent child and youth care. On board you will find mostly Americans.
In 1999 the ship joined the fleet as Carnival Triumph. Since the last modernisation in March 2019 the ship's name has changed to Carnival Sunrise. New water slides were added to the Water Works park. In addition to further sports facilities there are different shops, the wellness area Cloud 9 Spa and many restaurants and bar. The daily program varies a lot and includes activities like bingo, karaoke and games.
