Experience Carnival Sunrise


Whatever cuisine you’re hankering for, you’ll find a restaurant serving it aboard the Carnival Sunrise. The dishes available at the complimentary options are as diverse as they are delicious, with everything from Neapolitan style pizza to smoky barbeque, not to mention Guy’s Burger Joint, a laid back venue endorsed by the king of American food, Guy Fieri. 

If you’re celebrating something special there are plenty of specialty options too. The Chef’s Table is a sensual delight, taking you on a taste journey around the world with fresh ingredients and unique plates that wouldn’t be out of place in the finest restaurants of Paris. Then there’s the excellent sushi, fresh seafood, and succulent steaks on offer too. One thing’s for sure: aboard a Carnival Sunrise cruise, you’ll never be wanting for a good meal.


The big question aboard the Carnival Sunrise is, what will you try first? You’ll have to tear the little ones away from places like Camp Ocean, where kids aged 2-11 will be kept busy by fun activities like treasure hunts. Then there’s the Waterworks mini park, where they can splash around to their heart’s content, as well as the incredible Seuss at Sea, where the imaginative writer’s famous characters come to life. Older kids and teens can head to Club O2, full to the brim with activities like movies, karaoke, and dance parties.

Adults are spoiled for choice aboard the Carnival Sunrise too. During the day you can relax at the spa, or take a dip in one of the many pools on the ship. There’s also fun games like Bingo onboard, as well as plenty of retail options for shopaholics. As evening hits, you’ll be able to choose between stand-up comedy shows, live musical productions, and parties that carry on well into the wee hours.

Whether you’re a solo traveller just looking to unwind, or a family hoping to make memories that will last a lifetime, the Carnival Sunrise will be the perfect backdrop to your seaborne adventure. A large ship that can handle almost 3,000 passengers, a Carnival Sunrise cruise is a destination in itself, with dozens of activities spread across its decks, lasting throughout the day and well into the night. Add in the supreme comfort that Carnival Sunrise cabins bring, regardless of whether you’re booking a stateroom or a suite, and you’re sure to have the holiday of a lifetime once aboard. All you need to do is book!


There are no bad rooms aboard the Carnival Sunrise. Even the most basic stateroom option comes with beds you can sink into, a huge television, and a dedicated room steward. With that said, if you’re keen for a real VIP experience, then splashing out on the suites is a must. Not only will you be blessed with incredibly spacious accommodation and excellent sea views, but the room fee also includes priority check-in and disembarkation, priority dining, and some free cotton bathrobes so you can enjoy your king-sized bed in comfort.


The best thing about a Carnival Sunrise cruise is that it truly has something for everyone, and is large enough that it can accommodate all different types of groups. Families are well catered for, with a wealth of activities for kids of all ages. Older couples looking for peace, quiet, and a bit of romance can spend their days in the spa and their nights devouring candlelit dinners. Solo travellers wanting to socialise are also in luck, with plenty of activities onboard to help them mingle with others. Whatever you want, you’ll find it on the Carnival Sunrise.


The Carnival Sunrise spends most of its time around Florida and the Caribbean, although occasionally heads further north up the Eastern Seaboard to take in some of America’s great cities, like New York. However, there’s no doubt this is primarily a ship for the beach lovers, so if you’re a fan of feeling the sand between your toes and the gentle crashing of the ocean against the shore, then this is the cruise for you. Miami, the Bahamas, Jamaica, and many more stop-offs are available, so make sure to pack your flip flops and bathing suits!
