7 Night Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 11, 2015
Ship: Carnival Sunshine
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 5347
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The cruise was tough for a handicapped person. Getting on and off the ship

was a nightmare. Trying to access the decks was a challenge. The ramps

are not friendly for scooters or wheelchairs. Also trying to take an elevator

involved a lot of waiting and patience. We had ordered an onboard welcome gift,

a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries.. The champagne was hot and exploded when opened. We didn't receive another bottle until the day before the end of the cruise. I would not reccomend this cruise line to my friends or other handicapped persons.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The cabin was clean. The balcony door was difficult. If you were out on the balcony the door continuously swung open and close. There was no way to secure it from the outside.

Ship Tip

There are no shining moments to recommend. I was happy to return to port. All the ports were gated and owned by the cruise line. Entering new ports had no local charm only vendors allowed by the cruise line.
