March 2015 - Carnival Sunshine to Caribbean - Southern
We enjoyed the cruise even though it was very windy most of the week. It was too windy to spend much time on our balcony or even enjoy sitting by the pool. It was so windy we couldn't dock in Aruba which was the reason we booked this cruise. Enjoyed the beach at Grand Turk very much. I usually find the staff on a Carnival cruise to be happier than other lines, but not so this ship. Maybe it was the wind or the missed day off in Aruba, but I didn't see joy on many faces. Take care of your staff, Carnival, and please be the first cruise line to add nickname to the boarding card. I know you need to put my real name on the card for homeland security, but what is stopping you from adding a nickname line so that your staff doesn't call us by a name we never use. It is a bit offensive. Loved our travel agent, but was disappointed there was no welcome gift. The agency we used in the past always had a bottle of wine or champagne sent to our room. Good cruise though.
