Carnival Sunshine Review

Sail Date: September 13, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This was our 5th cruise, but our first with Carnival.  We had a blast!  The ship was beautiful & clean.  There were lots of great places to eat and drink - i think we tried almost all of them!  There was plenty of great entertainment.  We made lots of new friends at the Sports Pub.  We enjoyed movies & pop corn on the big screen every night, followed by fun in the casino. The water slide was lots of fun!  And on lazy days we thoroughly enjoyed the Serenity deck.  We were very pleased with Carnival and look forward to another cruise next summer!  

Ship Quality
The Sunshine was beautiful and clean.
Food and Dining
Every single bite & drink I had were delicious!
Cabin / Stateroom
Our first cruise with a balcony! I LOVED it!
Service and Staff
The staff was friendly and efficient.
Entertainment Too much entertainment to list, but they were all great!
Onboard Activities
There is no way to get bored on this ship unless thats what you choose to do.
Destinations and Excursions
We absolutely loved Cozumel and Mahogany Bay, but Belize City & Costa Maya were not so nice.
Port Canaveral, Florida
We didnt do anything special in Port Canaveral, but the cruise port is nice & well organized.
Cozumel, Mexico
When we go to Cozumel we always go to Nachi Cocum for the day. We love it!
Belize City, Belize
Belize City is dirty and dangerous. We hired a local company to show us around. Went to a rum company, saw the city, and then ate lunch at a great little place away from the city. But if we went there again i would just stay on and enjoy the ship.
Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Beautiful! Tropical! Went zip lining through the jungle. Saw beautiful plants, trees, and animals. Went to a small zoo. Shopped for crafts from locals. Enjoyed the local beer and very nice people.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
There was one Mayan ruin within walking distance. Other than that, this port was a very touristy shopping area.


On days that we had early excursions we planned ahead to order room service for breakfast so that we could get ready and leave quickly.
