Honoring Service: Carnival Sunrise’s Newest Addition Celebrates Military Heroes

In a move that underscores its commitment to honor military service members, Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Sunrise has set sail once again, boasting a brand-new feature that pays homage to the brave hearts of the military.

Fresh from a meticulous dry dock in Cadiz, Spain, the vessel now features the Heroes Tribute Bar & Lounge, a thoughtful addition designed to celebrate the valor of active-duty troops and veterans.

Docked for maintenance and upgrades from February 1 to March 3, 2024, at the Navantia shipyard, the 2,984-guest Carnival Sunrise embarked on her maiden voyage post-upgrade on March 5, 2024.

This significant revamp introduces a venue originally launched across the fleet in 2019, replacing the SkyBox Sports Bar.

The Heroes Tribute Bar & Lounge not only welcomes all guests onboard but also serves as a tribute to the United States’ military forces, adorned with American décor that reflects the proud history and values of the nation’s army, navy, air force, marines, and coast guard.

The interior of the bar is rich with military memorabilia, featuring heartfelt messages and photos under the banners of “Welcome Home,” “Thank You for Your Service,” and “America’s Heroes.”

In an inspiring show of support, Carnival Cruise Line has pledged to donate $1 to Operation Homefront for every exclusive souvenir glass purchased at the venue, further aiding military families in need.

This latest addition aligns seamlessly with the ship’s patriotic aesthetic, enhanced by a red, white, and blue livery and hull design introduced during a 2022 dry dock session.

The Carnival Sunrise’s latest dry dock not only focused on this significant addition but also included routine hotel maintenance, cosmetic enhancements across public areas, and modifications to ensure ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliance in public spaces and selected staterooms.

The ship offers a variety of itineraries departing from PortMiami, perfect for spring break and beyond, with 4- and 5-day Western Caribbean cruises, 5-day Eastern Caribbean voyages, and 4-day Bahamas getaways.

Each destination provides guests with an immersive experience, whether it’s the vibrant streets of Key West, the crystal-clear waters of Cozumel, or the private island luxury of Princess Cays and Half Moon Cay.

The Carnival Sunrise, originally launched in 1999 as the Carnival Triumph, underwent a transformative $200 million renovation in 2019, emerging with a fresh identity and a host of Fun Ship 2.0 features.

This comprehensive makeover included the addition of popular dining venues, such as Cucina del Capitano and Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse, entertainment options like Piano 88, and recreational facilities, including WaterWorks and the Serenity adults-only retreat.

With its recent upgrades, Carnival Sunrise not only reaffirms Carnival Cruise Line’s dedication to providing exceptional guest experiences but also its ongoing commitment to honoring those who serve.

The Heroes Tribute Bar & Lounge stands as a testament to the valor and sacrifice of the United States military members, ensuring that every voyage aboard the Carnival Sunrise is a journey of gratitude and respect.
