Carnival Triumph is back at sea under her own power, but isn’t quite ready to take on passengers just yet. The liner left Mobile, Alabama today for a dry dock facility in Freeport, Bahamas and is scheduled to arrive on Saturday, May 11 for final repairs, shipboard operating enhancements and the addition of the incredibly popular Fun Ship 2.0 features.
After the dry dock, Carnival Triumph will boast some of the best Fun Ship 2.0 amenities:
- Guy’s Burger Joint – complimentary fresh-made burgers and hand-cut fries created by Food Network personality and chef Guy Fieri
- BlueIguana Cantina – a free-of-charge Mexican cantina with custom-made tacos and burritos that can be personalized at an extensive salsa and toppings bar
- Alchemy Bar – a cocktail “pharmacy” where highly trained mixologists create custom cocktails using interesting flavors and ingredients
- EA SPORTS Bar – an interactive sports-themed lounge where patrons can view live action sports, play popular EA SPORTS video games and keep up with the latest scores
- RedFrog Rum Bar – a poolside Caribbean-themed watering hole offering a variety of the region’s top rums and beers in a laid-back island-infused atmosphere
- BlueIguana Tequila Bar – a poolside bar serving frozen cocktails and Mexican beers in a fun and festive environment
Besides the Fun Ship 2.0 features, Carnival Triumph will receive the shipboard operating enhancements announced by the line in April. The $500 million fleetwide program will add new systems to improve operating reliability to further prevent a potential loss of primary power, an upgrade in fire detection and suppression systems, and, in the rare event of a loss of main power, additional emergency backup power to provide core hotel services to ensure guest comfort.
Following this final dry dock, Carnival Triumph will resume operating four- and five-day cruises from Galveston, Texas on June 13, 2013.
