January 2015 - Carnival Sunshine to Caribbean - Western
As always we loved our Carnival Cruise! The ship was awesome, food and service were exceptional. Onboard activities were great. Ports were the best ever! Our only gripe as it is with every Carnival cruise we go on is the night shows. There is very little variety and what they do have is Vegas style production shows where the apparel of the dancers leaves MUCH to be desired!! We knew to stay away from the shows because of our past cruises with carnival, but we heard nonstop from the other members of our travel group how indecent and un-family-friendly the dancing and costumes were. We attended the magician show, and it was great. We also tried about 10 minutes of the 70's rock show and left after the clothes started coming off. When women are wearing bras and thongs, we are out. We were told by the others in our party that the show only went downhill from there. It ended with a strip tease style dance that was done on a platform in the audience right in front of a young family with children. By the end of the dance, the male dancer was in tight, sheer, shorts that apparently left nothing to the imagination. Again, we loved everything else about our cruise, but time after time on a Carnival ship with this type of entertainment, we are looking into other cruising options.
