First bad experience with carnival cruise lines

In response to review, sully32 says ...

This was my wife and I third cruise with Carnival, we were definitely had our expectations set high from the previous cruises with Carnival. Ship was beautiful, ‚ room service was great, and Shore Excursion representative was great. Bad experience with dinning staff, bar staff, ‚ casino staff. Overall Carnival Sunshine ok, but not the best. I wish I could say more positive things, but I can't. We will cruise with Carnival again in the future, and I'm sure that carnival will correct some of these issues.‚

Glad you are not giving up cruising due to one bad experience. So many ships, so many itineraries, so many crews. The next might be perfection just waiting for you to enjoy. Good luck!

To make you feel better (or worse?) here is a recent article about the Carnival Sunshine.

We all have different expectations and experiences on vacation. We were on the Sunshine in March and had the best time in 5 cruises. We loved the ship, found the food and wait staff to be great, and appreciated having our room cleaned 2x daily, without even asking for it. Our friends had a spa cabin and they enjoyed the access to the spa facilities, discount on spa treatments and the extra complimentary toiletries. We would love to cruise on this beautiful ship again. 

It is interesting the different moods encountered with staff on different ships even within the same cruise line.‚  I noticed a distinct difference in staff between the Crown and Grand Princess ships.‚  Grand being the better of the two.‚  I believe it has a lot to do with the management and that can be hard to get changed.‚  Hope your next cruise is better.

Sorry to read that this cruie did not live up to your expectation as past Carnival cruises had.‚
