Cruise exceeded our expectations

Sail Date: August 29, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

This cruise was very reasonably priced and one of the destinations was Grand Turk. This was our primary reason for selecting it. The only Carnival cruise we had taken before this was on the Fantasy out of Charleston which was not a positive experience. Our expectations were not that high for the Sunshine, and we were very pleasantly surprised. We have never had better food on a cruise, and we have cruised Holland America, Royal Caribbean, Princess, Celebrity, and Norwegian. The service was great all through the ship. We had a problem with dining service on the first night, and we discussed it with the Maitre'd the next morning. He recognized our issue and for the remainder of the cruise we had a different waiter, table for two, at a window. All of the personnel were very friendly. The only negative about this cruise was there are very few places to quietly sit and read or talk on the Sunshine.

Cabin / Stateroom
It was one of the roomiest cabins we have had for an oceanview. There was lots of storage space. The only negative was that there was no refrigerator.

The best we have ever had on a cruise!


If you have a problem on the ship, talk with guest services immediately so they have a chance to correct the problem.
