Carnival Sunrise will be relocating to an alternative dock in New York due to repairs on Pier 92 at the Manhattan Cruise Terminal.
Carnival Sunrise Port Changes
The Miami-based cruise line has sent out a letter to guests booked on the September 16 sailing on Carnival Sunrise. The recently transformed Carnival cruise ship is based out of the Manhattan Cruise Terminal at Pier 92 but ongoing repairs are planned for the pier which will impact the sailing and those thereafter.
In the letter, the cruise line states that the ship will arrive at Pier 92 to disembark passengers ending the 4-day Bermuda cruise which departed the port on September 12. The ship will then move to the nearby Brooklyn Cruise Terminal. However, the repositioning will take several hours and the ship is expected to arrive in the afternoon.
Several sailings are to be impacted and we have confirmed departures on September 12, September 22, September 29 and October 6 will all sail from Brooklyn.
You can read the full letter which was sent out to guests below:
Port officials have informed us that Pier 92 at the Manhattan Cruise terminal will be undergoing repairs. As a result, your cruise will now sail from the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal (72 Bowne St. Brooklyn, NY 11231).
On September 16, Carnival Sunrise will arrive at Pier 92 and disembark guest from the prior voyage, then she will reposition to Brooklyn. This process will take several hours and the ship is expected to arrive in the afternoon.
Since this will impact the boarding for your cruise, please delay your arrival appointment by two hours (e.g. 11:30 AM – 12:00 PM appointment will become 1:30 PM – 2:00 PM).
In preparation for departure, all guests must be on board the ship no later than 5:00 PM.
Thank you for your understanding. Our entire Carnival Sunrise team is looking forward to providing you with a fun and memorable cruise.
As expected guests are being asked to delay their arrival at the alternative port by two hours. This would also, in turn, delay the usual departure time. The Brooklyn Cruise Terminal is often used by Norwegian Cruise Line, Princess Cruises and Cunard Line. You can check the full schedule of departures on their official site.
The ship will continue to sail from the alternative port until her final voyage from New York departing on October 6. The ship will shift to Norfolk before continuing down south to Florida for her new homeport in Fort Lauderdale starting from October 28.
