Fun in the southern Caribbean islands

Sail Date: December 01, 2014

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

Embarkation was very fast\, less than 15 minutes from shuttle\, to first drink of the day on board the ship. Cruise Director Jamie Dee was very high energy\, and did a great job. We did have a delay getting into Aruba\, due to a Coast Guard pickup of a passenger needing medical attention. Debarkation was also fast\, 25 minutes from tag number being called to exit. Only line up was for Customs.

Pros: The sun\, sand and beaches.

Cons: 1 day of clouds and rain (so what!)

Recommends Carnival Sunshine? Yes!

Ship Quality
Ship was very clean\, decor was good\, however some of the ship layout was very restricted.
Food and Dining
Main Dining room was fantastic for breakfast and dinner. Buffet was a little boring\, but the Deli\, Guys\, the Blue Iguana\, and JiJi's were great for lunch.
Cabin / Stateroom
I had a Serenity Deck Inside Stateroom (11011)\, very quiet\, nice location and had Spa access (very nice).
Service and Staff
Ship staff was very good. All of the ship staff were very pleasant.
Entertainment was very good\, ships shows\, and comedians were great. Met some of the Entertainment Staff at Jack's Shack in Grand Turk and they were extremely nice (
