Review summary

We had a great time on board the Sunshine.  The crew was wonderful and very helpful.  Our room steward was Awesome.  He left us some great little presents each night and was willing to get me a bucket of ice at least twice a day.  The food was good and the drinks were Awesome!

The only bad thing was the pools were so small and we were packed in them on the sea days.  You could get in and stand next to your new friends and that was about it.  

One other suggestion:  Do not pay to go on the beach excursions.  Most of all the places that you get at, you can catch a taxi and get there a lot cheaper.  We traveled to St. Thomas, San Juan and Grand Turk.  The beach at Grand Turk is right next to the port.  If you want to do something really special then book an excursion.

I wish that they had the Blue Cantina open more than it was. It should bee open just as much as Guy's burger joint was. It was really good, but we only got to eat there once.

The only complaint I had with our room was you could not get it very cold. I like to have cold rooms and ours never was cold.
