June 2014 - Carnival Sunshine to Caribbean - Western
We are avid cruisers and loved the Sunshine. Our party of ten (adults teens and 10 yr old loved every minute of the cruise. The food was great (fairly limited dining room menu but certainly no one went hungry and by far more choices than home!! The redo was terrific - everyone agreed that they hope Carnival will go with the "new look" and eating area arrangements. The areas seemed perfect for any group and was divided into different locations which really cut down on the "crowded feel."
The staff could not have been better - our many thanks for such great service. The ports were all fun but we did feel that Costa Maya was not the best port for a cruise ship. We had been there years ago and appreciated the upgrade of the cruise area but both restaurants/bars at the area now seem to want to take advantage of the cruisers. Mahagany Bay was way to short of a visit. We all fell in love with the area, people, activities, and beautiful private beach and shopping area. All in all, we had a terrific time and would go again tonight if we could. Thank you Carnival for a SUPER cruise.
