Carnival Sunshine

May 2016 - Carnival Sunshine to Caribbean - Eastern

Had fun but ship was way too crowded. Only went because of the ports

My favorite part were the ports. St Kitts & San Juan were my 2 favorite favorite but they were all great. Also loved Antigua.  We had a balcony cabin & it had a small fridge which was nice. The main dining room food was always good but I wasn't impressed with the buffet. I loved the Blue Iguana Cantina & the Pasta Bar. For some reason mine & my mom's pictures kept getting switched on our sign & sail cards & it caused some problems. When we were in St Kitts I had been on & off the ship several times & the last time I left my mom to do some more shopping & went back to the room. Somehow the cards were both showing my mom's picture & it took me 45 minutes to get on the ship. No one could explain why this was happening. We also heard other people having problems with their accounts too. All in all the ports were the best part of the trip. I wouldn't go back on the Sunshine again but I don't regret taking the cruise at all. It was just too crowded for me since they added more cabins, the buffet wasn't really that great & there were leaks up & down deck 8 & I believe 7 too. I did like the serenity deck but if you didn't get there by 7:30 or 8 you wouldn't get a chair by the pool with the waterfall. That's with any ship though. We just found other places to lay out & look out over the ocean. That was better anyway. The good outweighed the bad but I did want to give a fair review

Carnival Fantasy

September 2014 - Carnival Fantasy to Caribbean - Bahamas

"First & only cruise so far"

First Cruise so nothing to compare this to

Overall everything was good in my opinion. The staff was friendly, our rooms were always clean. The ship seemed to be well maintained. The food was pretty good especially the lobster on the "Formal" night. Overall I didn't have any complaints about the cruise. The soda package then was $8.00 for the entire cruise & now I see it's $6.50 a day plus 15% gratuity so the 10 day cruise we're taking in May will be $69 for soft drinks. The only reason this concerns me is because we've opted for a balcony this time & are spending money on excursions because we are going to be in 5 different ports. I'm saving all the money I can. LOL.

chvygrl10's Tips

Carnival Sunshine Carnival Sunshine - If you do Anytime Dining & don't want to go to through the Casino head toward the Aft of the ship on whatever deck you're on. Go to deck 5 from there & get your ticket then back down to 3. I believe it's the last bank of elevators as you head to the back. We never had to wait but we always ate early
Nassau, Bahamas - We just went over to Paradise island so that I could take in the gorgeous waters & people watch.
Carnival Fantasy Carnival Fantasy - Pool was ALWAYS crowded so I'd suggest getting there early if you want a lounge chair right beside it.
Charleston, South Carolina - I love Charleston seeing as it's kind of like my home away from home. It's a 2 1/2 to 3 hour drive from where I live. Love Market St. Definitely something to check out if you are not from the area.
