Review Summary

The Sunshine's modernization is  awesome for kids. Regarding our room, the Liberty put this room to shame. We had a sick passenger, which required a return to Nassau (our first port).  That screwed up the remainder of our cruise. Grand Turk (never got there), and we arrived in Puerto Rico so late that most excursions were canceled.  Every passenger I spoke with or overheard, preferred stopping at Grand Turk and skipping Puerto Rico. Nice flat screen TV, but reception was often unavailable.  Sorry, I can't recommend this ship.

The room steward gave my wife the creeps, and I understood why. However, he did an okay job.
