The video also showcases the new Sunshine Atrium, which is being completely renovated with a stylish new décor, as well as the Serenity adults-only retreat that will span three decks and feature a pool, waterfall, colorful oversized umbrellas, and more. Construction of the Serenity area is so complex that it involves positioning pre-fabricated decks onto the ship via crane. Other spaces such as Ocean Plaza, a stunning café and live entertainment venue, along with top-deck watering holes like the RedFrog Rum Bar are also beginning to take shape.
More than 3,000 shipboard employees and contractors are working 24/7 to complete the unprecedented $155 million renovation, which is part of the line’s groundbreaking Fun Ship 2.0 product enhancement initiative.
Carnival Sunshine is set to debut May 5 with a summer schedule of 9- and 12-day Mediterranean voyages from Barcelona and Venice followed by a trans-Atlantic crossing from Barcelona to New Orleans, positioning the vessel for year-round 7-day Caribbean cruises from the Big Easy this fall.
