New ship or a refitted one?

New ship or a refitted one?

It is the Triumph getting a 200 million dollar refit, similar to Destiny becoming Sunshine. Victory is next to become Carnival Radiance.

The Triumph of "Poop Cruise" fame?

Behind the Titanic and maybe the Costa Concordia that may be the most infamous cruise I can recall. I did sail on the Triumph after that and had a good time. My wife booked the Sunrise for Sept. 16 of this year. I am excited about leaving out of NYC and very excited about going to Bermuda for the first time. She just informed me of this in the last week or so. After getting thru the excitement I started getting a little concerned about sailing in September. Hopefully weather will be good.

Here it is, at Grand Turk 2008. We pulled in to this small pier the night before on HAL's Prinsendam, just before heading across the "pond". Woke in the morn to find this "wall" across from us. Can't say anything bad about it, Carnival really had the shore fixed up with bands, etc and the vessel looked clean and nice. I will say this, those folk know how to party.

I thought changing a ships name was bad luck ?

Haw---It seems like ship name changes are so common that the jinx is more likely to be with a vessel that hasn't had a name change or two or three.

Our first cruise was on the Fair Princess, whose first name in 1988 was the Fairsea, then it had two more names before being scrapped in 2005. Our second cruise was on the first Royal Princess, still sailing under her third name the Artania. The one time and very popular NCL SS Norway started out as the France and ended her days as the Blue Lady. The 1970 MV Ocean Dream had ten names before being sunk on purpose in 2016.

Ship name changes aren't just relegated to contemporary times either. I've got a couple of books on the biography of the great slugfest between the British Navy, under the command of Lord Horatio Nelson, and the combined fleet of Spanish and French "Men of Wars" at the battle of Cape Trafalgar in 1805. Amazed me how many of the 73 warship that took part in that battle had sailed under various names prior to the engagement.

I did not say it did not happen, My first cruise was on the Viking Serenade that had been through a few name changes herself. I was commenting that it is considered bad luck by seafarers of old time. just as having a woman on the bridge long ago was bad luck. I was on the Monarch Of The Sea's with the first female Captain, She did a great job :-)

We are booked on the Sunrise this May. I am so excited that I've already started packing. I have about 10 bathing suits for a 6 day cruise.Big SmileBig SmileBig Smile This will be the first cruise where we don't have to travel. We're leaving out of Norfolk and live about 15 minutes away. I know that they are updating all the cabins and also adding more cabins. It will get all the 2.0 upgrades that the newer ships.
