Just an FYI, there is a chance there could be service dogs on this cruise.

I have cruised before, but this is our first time taking our 2 year old daughter, question can we carry on snacks like Goldfish or Fruit snack in sealed packs. I don't remember the ship offering snacks on board before. Just wanted to see if anyone has taken kids and snacks for them, if it is issue with boarding. Thanks for any advice.

I didn't see any last year in Charleston, i think they mostly work behind the scenes but I'd put her in a pull-up just in case. I do remember seeing several the year I returned on a cruise out of NYC

Is anyone OR HAS anyone ever cruised out of the port of Charleston.. if so, does anyone know if they have dogs in the building because my child is terrified of animals & she pees on herself as soon as she sees them. I would just like a forewarning because I struggle with animals and my kid.. thanks in advance

I have sailed 3 times this year from Charleston and on board after getting out of my car in one hour. Room has been ready by 2ish. Personally don't know if any faster is worth the money

These don't look metal, more like slated wood but i don't know for sure if it actually is metal and just looks that way. I'm bringing command hooks

We have sailed from Charleston many times and stayed at the sleep inn Mt. Pleasant. Park your car free at the hotel during your cruise. 4 minutes from port. Great staff clean hotel free breakfast. Don't let the price fool you... Very nice clean relaxing hotel.

Doses anyone know if the doors are metal? I want to decorate my door and the sign I had made is magnetic. Some ships have metal doors, some don't. If not what should I use to fasten it on the door now since they have changed the rules. Thanks!

We are staying at the Charleston Sleep Inn the night before and using the park and cruise package. This includes transfer to the port and they keep your car free all week. They will pick you up for a small fee. The price of the hotel pays the price of parking at the port.

FTTF stands for faster to the fun. For a fee of $59 you can get on the ship earlier, have your stateroom ready when you get on, and get your luggage delivered early. Also priority for guest services,and when you have to tender to one of the islands. I love FTTF because I like to unload my carry on in my stateroom as soon as I get on, there's nothing worse than tracking around with a bunch of bag's, especially if you want to eat and explore the ship.

We had FTTF on our February cruise out of Charleston. We were able to bypass a long line parking and at check-in. Was worth it that day. We were able to get it for this cruise, as well.

Is FTTF still available? Anyone used the Port of Charleston? Is FTTF needed there? Definitely loved it in Miami, but didn't think Charleston was nearly as crowded.

Looking forward to our first cruise on the Sunshine. Bonus points that we are sailing out of our "home port" of Charleston. We usually have to drive from SC to Florida for this type of itinerary. This is also the first cruise we have booked over a year out. Seems like forever away. Luckily we have a few booked in between this one!
