Carnival Sunshine

June 2016 - Carnival Sunshine to Caribbean - Bahamas

CARNIVAL SUNSHINE REVIEW - CRUISE DATES: 10-15 JUNE 2016

THIS WAS OUR FIRST EVER CRUISE.  EVENING DINING WAS ENJOYABLE.  FOOD COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER.  STAFF WAS EXCELLENT (AMITH, EMMANUEL OSORIO, EDUARDO, RYAN BAISAS, KETRA AND MELISSA).  COULDN'T SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT THESE FOLKS.  CRUISE DIRECTOR, EMMA NIXON WAS SPECTACULAR.  PLENTY OF FOOD ON LIDO DECK, HOWEVER, WE NOTICED ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS CHILDREN AND ADULTS WOULD ENTER DINING AREA WITH NO SHIRTS OR SHOES TO EAT AND NO STAFF WOULD CONFRONT THEM.  ALSO NOTICED SEVERAL INDIVIDUALS "SAGGING" (PANTS BELOW THEIR BUTTOCKS) IN THE LIDO DINING AREA & AROUND THE SHIP.  BOTH OF THESE HABITS ARE DISGUSTING IN OUR WORLD.  WE EXPECTED CRAB LEGS AND WAS DISAPPOINTED THERE WEREN'T ANY.  LOBSTER TAIL "UP CHARGE" AT EVENING DINING WAS A TURN-OFF.  GETTING ON THE SHIP AND GETTING OFF THE SHIP WAS QUITE THE EXPERIENCE.  LONG LINES.  LOTS OF CONFUSION AT THE TERMINAL IN NORFOLK WITH THE CARNIVAL STAFF.  SEEMED VERY DISORGANIZED.  THE SHOWS WERE GREAT.  THE TRIBUTE TO VETERANS WITH EMMA NIXON WAS EXCEPTIONAL.  THE HOST FOR THE JEWELRY SHOW WAS A LITTLE "OVER THE TOP".  WE FELT LIKE WE WERE SITTING IN AN AUDITORIUM LISTENING TO A "HIGH PITCH" SALE FOR A TIMESHARE.  THE EVENING WAIT STAFF GETS A 5-STAR RATING AS DOES EMMA NIXON, THE CRUISE DIRECTOR.  CARNIVAL REALLY NEEDS TO DO A BETTER JOB OF HAVING PEOPLE EATING IN THE VENUES TO WEAR A SHIRT AND SHOES AND TO KEEP THEIR PANTS ABOVE THEIR BUTTOCKS (I CAN'T BELIEVE I HAVE TO EVEN MENTION THIS.  SELF-RESPECT COMES NATURAL TO US).  OVERALL WE WOULD RATE OUR 1ST EVER CRUISE 2.5 STARS.
