Carnival Sunshine

February 2015 - Carnival Sunshine to Caribbean - Eastern

better than expected for 60 year old couple

oceanview room was spacious and king bed was great.  big shower and plenty of closet & drawers.  food was very good, (lobster nite, prime rib, steaks, steak & egg breakfast etc in dining room).  dance and singing shows were good, piano bar sing along was great and comics were okay.  had to get in line early to get a seat at some shows.  buffet food and special lunch food (italian/stir fry) were good and taco/burgers also.  would have liked more ship activity for days at sea.  more 50+ passengers than expected on carnival.  few children and they had activities/area separate so noise was not bad.  8 day cruise may have made a difference here...  casino games all seem to have gimmics and are not standard vegas style except crap table.  drink package cost $920 per couple and is not worth it.  all drinks are very costly.  $5 beer is cheapest and a shame when you can get a beer off boat for $1.  they need a modified drink package that you can enjoy.  excursions are very expensive and minimal assistance for island info except to take a excursion.  cruise price is cheap but they get you big time for drinks and excursions.  overall, not bad.

gjcapanda's Tips

Grand Turk Island - snorkle was okay and cheapest excursion for the whole trip. good beach right there.
Port Canaveral, Florida - you can arrive very early and get on ship. getting off taking your luggage was a zoo with no controls by staff
Carnival Sunshine Carnival Sunshine - hard to get from front to back. rooms were great. drinks are outrageous. with the cost of booze so low it seems a shame they charge so much. if you buy liquor, verify you get the right stuff. we got wrong bottles delivered and did not check while on board the ship.
