KEEP: The aft dining room will remain the same on Deck 3. On the Carnival Triumph this space is known as the Paris Dining Room. We do not know the name this dining room will have on the Carnival Sunrise. However, the dining room decor will likely change and the tables/table layout will also probably change.

Both of these former spaces were on the Promenade Deck.

Essentially, a cruiser will have to walk through the casino when going from the atrium area to the middle of the Promenade Deck. As a result of these changes, the casino layout will change. However, the casino cashier station will remain in the same place.
KEEP: The casino bar area will remain in the same place.

CHANGE: The South Beach Club Lido Buffet will be converted to the Lido Marketplace buffet concept...
Carnival Triumph: The Carnival Triumph's buffet is known as the South Beach Club. This space contains the ship's deli, Chopsticks, main buffet lines, and dessert station. There are two stairwells that lead to the upper level of the South Beach Club because the buffet is two stories.

Carnival Triumph: This area was the 2nd level of the South Beach Club Lido Buffet. Essentially, this area contained additional seating and 1 drink station.

CHANGE: Complete Redesign Of The Deck 11 SPA Stateroom Area & Fitness Center
Carnival Triumph: The front of Deck 11 contained the SPA, gym, staterooms, and Camp Ocean.
Carnival Sunrise: At least seven additional staterooms are being added. The layout of the SPA will change and according to the current deck plans the fitness center can be accessed without going through the ship's locker rooms. Furthermore, Camp Ocean will no longer be located in this area and this will give the SPA additional space for facilities and staterooms.
