Book another cruise line
Book another cruise line
Just expect to entertain yourself or spend time relaxing and reading.
Don’t over pack
Go to the dining room dinner on the first night. Lots of fun!
Don’t sail it
Think twice about booking an 8 night cruise on the Sunrise because there isn’t much to enjoy while on the ship.
Check out the spa...it was an amazing experience!
ship isnt the issue here, its Carnival policy and procedures that fail
It caters to families and don’t plan on sleeping. The crew allows kids and adults to scream and yell all hours of the night.
If you want a Pina Colda order one early cause they ran out of the mix. Eat in the dinning room for breakfast and dinner the buffet is not good. Lunch Guys burger shack is good and Blue Iguana tacos are good.
Add more cabins to ship without adding public spaces
Leaving from New York. Saved us money not having to go to Florida to cash the boat.
Be prepared to be disappointed because they took a small ship to host a certain amount of people and made it overcrowded. There is a line for everything and the wait is long. They added more cabins and cruisers but did not add more service staff. The staff did their best to keep up but Carnival did a disservice to their guests by adding more cabins and not enough staff. You can see and feel the difference and most guest thought that.
STAY AWAY! IF A SHIP SPENT 200 MILLION DOLLARS & HAS BLACK SMOKE AND HEATING & COOLING ISSUES AS WELL AS WATER ITS JUST A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THIS GOES UP IN FLAMES LIKE THE TRIUMPH THAT THIS ONCE WAS!!!
Unscheduled dinning for two people wasn’t the best way to meet others?
Bring walkie talkies. They will help you stay in touch with your party - especially if you don't want to pay extra for the chat feature through the Carnival Hub app.
Eat and drink
There are only like 4 irons on the entire ship. If you are someone who irons your clothes, plan to work around that. I ironed the day BEFORE elegant nights. I also suggest bringing non-wrinkle clothes or ironing at home. I am not sure if a handheld steamer is allowed, but it's something to consider. Also, we brought a bunch of drinks and snacks for the kids and barely touched them.
Don’t overpack like I did..
