8 Night Southern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 21, 2015
Ship: Carnival Sunshine
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 2225
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 2 years ago

 I sailed on Carnival Destiny in 2000 and it was my least favourite Carnival ship of the subsequent 23 cruises with them because of small amount of open deck space. The refurbishment and renaming to the Sunshine increased the number of cabins, removed the back pool and further reduced open deck space available to all passengers with the introduction of a large area only for 21 and over.

The new eating facilities in terms of quality, layout and extended choice were excellent as was the the new waterworks and sportsworld. The entertainment in the lounges and theatre was also an improvement and very good.

If you are wanting to be busy all the time I recommend this cruise if you are looking to relax quietly on deck then this ship is not for you

All the staff were excellent in terms of carrying out their duties diligently and in a courteous friendly manner.
