Sunshine was GREAT !

Sail Date: October 17, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

This was the first time on this ship and in reading some reviews from other websites we were a little nervous of what we would experience.  However we found the ship to be very nice and the staff was great.  Everything we have come to expect when cruising Carnival met our expectations.  As reported from others, some of the venues were a bit small such as the comedy club,  from where we sat we could only see the comedian on a TV screen but we still enjoyed the show. No problem finding chairs in Serenity but in the Lido Buffet area many people use the seating for playing games and reading which made finding seats a bit difficult.  Only disappointment was in the boarding process, we are Platinum and that went very smoothly but for this entire group they did not offer the welcome aboard pictures. We did had others that had purchased Faster to the Fun and they boarded next but their cabins were not ready.

Lots of damage from recent hurricane, clean uo efforts caused lots of traffic jams so made it difficult to get around


Family with us said the Sushi Bar was really good. Grandma bought the optional Lobster in the MDR and it was huge and she loved it.
