Carnival Sunshine

Sail Date: May 26, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Inside

We liked our cruise, but not the ship. Here is the negative review. Carnival has a lot of issues on this ship. It was just overhauled but it seemed there was more to enhance the bars than being organized. We had over a 3 hour wait in line to board the ship. At one point their computers went down but we were not informed at first. Other couples in our party had some problems. When leaving the ship two couples did not get their luggage and Carnival will have to send it to them from Spain. Several cabins were flooded from the toilet, and the ship did not have hot water one evening. There was not enough entertainment that is usually found on Carnival. The food was not up to Carnival standards. Compared with RCCL, Carnival needs some work.

Don't plan on swimming, children take over the one small pool available on the Carnival Sunshine.
