December 2015 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Sunshine
Ship Way Too Crowded
Cruised on Carnival last year, left on same day as this cruise, it was awesome. The Sunshine is not a large enough ship to accommodate the 3,500 people who were on board. We were not able to even ONCE sit in the lounge chairs on the deck, people put & leave towels, shoes, etc on them ALL DAY LONG so no one else can use the seats, the 40 minute rule is not enforced if the seat is vacant. Food was good, stateroom always clean. There were 9 of our family members on this cruise (4 rooms). Very expensive cruise for each of us and our expectations were not met !! Most of the family vowed to never cruise again. There wasn't enough room to celebrate New Year's Eve on the Lido Deck, way too crowded. Music there and in the lounge for over 18 were geared for only the young people, we our all in our 50s so we just went to bed. Cruise Director Jaime was awesome, participated in activities. We were all just very disappointed with the cruise.
