Although the ship is currently sailing the Med under her new name, she will officially be christened at New Orleans, LA, on November 17. The re-positioning cruise departs from Barcelona on November 1.
Doing the honors at the official ceremony, which is by invitation only, will be the ship's godmother, Lin Arison, wife of Carnival's founder, Ted Arison (1924-1999).
After gracing the Big Easy with her presence for several months, Sunshine will then home port in Port Canaveral, effectively switching places with the Dream, which will move to New Orleans.
