Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Who designed a room with no chair\, no night stand and a toilet that you had to sit on with your feet in the shower? Do the technical staff know how to turn down the sound level? Life boat drill to start a 3 P.M.\, then 3:30 and started at 4:05? Was this the same Captain on The Concorda?

Pros: Service Cabin Steward \,Dinining Room and Lido Staff

Cons: Terrible Cabin 6353- Loud Music\, terrible life boat drill

Recommends Carnival Sunshine? No.

Ship Quality
They shrunk everything to add more passengers\, no place to sit except at noisy bars. To many places to drink and pay for extra foods. Ship was clean poor design\, compared to other Carnival ships we have cruised.
Food and Dining
Sunrise Dinning was good\, except tables were too close together. Our table 323 was so close to the others our waiter had to pass food and dirty dishes down the line. Lido set up was congesting at the buffet lines.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our stateroom 6353 had no chair\, no night stand and again you had to have your feet in the shower to sit on the toilet.
Service and Staff
The cabin\, dining\, Lido and all the staff were great\, as usual.
Music way too loud\, seems targeted to teenagers and not older VIP travelers-No place to enjoy quiet \"Elevator Music\"
Too much trivia and boring contests. Great Magician Show.
Children's Programs
Check out the ages of your travelers and try to plan for the cruise- Most of the people were more than 50 years old.
