Great itinerary--ship was nice\, very clean. We had \"your time\" dining in Sunrise and dinner service was very slow on more than half the nights. Breakfast was not slow. This was a disappointment as we allowed 2 hours for dinner each night and still had to skip dessert in order to make the evening events. They advertised having a cigar bar\, but there was not one. If you are a smoker\, you will be stuggling\, unless you have a balcony room.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Carnival has greatly improved on their food. Altho not gourmet\, it was consistently tasty. There is always something for everyone. I esp liked their \"comfort food\" selections\, as did prob most Americans. Farenheit 555 was exceptional and worth every penny. Pizza and hamburgers great.

Based on other cruises we have been on\, we felt the entertainment was lacking. Comedians were mediocre at best...shows were fair\, alto the special effects screens added a lot.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
People were friendly\, overall. The guys in the jewlery store were pushy and rude\, however\, They told me I was blocking the doorway when I stepped in for five seconds looking for someone.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Not too big\, not too small. We were pleased with the refurb

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Our interior room was fresh and clean with adequate storage. Beds comfy. Very pleased. Only recommendation would be to add a clock somewhere\,

Pros: Ports were excellent. Food was good. Stateroom comfortable.

Cons: Sports bar huge disappointment--no ESPN-only cricket and cycling for 12 days! WIFI way overpriced.

Recommends Carnival Sunshine? Yes!
