Carnival Cruise Line just announced that Carnival Triumph will transform into Carnival Sunrise. During this 60-day, $200 million renovation, the ship is going to get a slew of new venues, just like Carnival Sunshine did back in 2013. We talk with Gus Antorcha, Chief Operating Officer at Carnival Cruise Line about the refurbishment, and contributor Richard Simms stops by to give some insight.
