Carnival Sunrise which recently underwent a huge $200 million transformation in Cadiz, Spain now features a brand new authentic Asian concept called “Lucky Bowl.”

The new restaurant is free of charge and located at the Lido Marketplace on Lido deck. The new venue has replaced the hugely popular Mongolian Wok station which has been a long time favorite across all Carnival cruise ships for guests and even the crew.

Cyrus Marfatia, vice president of culinary and dining for Carnival Cruise Line, said:

“Asian cuisine really resonates with our guests, and Lucky Bowl, with its ever-changing menu, allows our guests to experience something new and delicious every day.”

“We always strive to cater to all palates, so we created bowls with the classic ingredients our guests know and love like fried chicken, jasmine rice and edamame, as well as some options with more authentic recipes.”
