Sunshine Cruise

Sail Date: September 11, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Unfortunately prior to the cruise I injured my back and was forced to experience the cruise in a wheel chair. Rather than lose the money we spent I chose to go which probably was not a good idea  - our room, specifically the bathroom was not wheelchair accessible, making use of the bathroom with back spasms miserable- we did inquire at CS and they could not help us. 

However, our room steward, and dining staff were very accommodating and made an uncomfortable situation bearable. 

Cabin / Stateroom
unfortunately I was miserable the entire cruise because of my back problems - we book the balcony because we enjoy our morning coffee outside in the early mornings - I was not able to get to the balcony

the beds are extremely uncomfortable and very difficult to get out of when you have back problems
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
because we paid for them and could not cancel - we went because of back injury I had to stay on the bus for tour of aruba and could not experience the beach because of wheelchair
Onboard Activities
was not able to experience as much as we would have liked
Service and Staff
Our room steward (cabin #7315) was more than gracious and willing to go above and beyond
Food and Dining
wilfredo and his team were wonderful to me in a most uncomfortable situation, the maitre d' was also very pleasant and always willing to assist with getting me to the table from my wheelchair - everyone always greeted us with a smile and a helping hand
