5 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 03, 2016
Ship: Carnival Sunshine
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 6291
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Generally a big Carnival fan, this ship was very nice inside but the exterior did not look like a recent refurbish.  The food was good but the variety was not there, dinner menu did not change much in only five days.  Formal night did not include Lobster without an up charge. For being after New Years there were lots of School age children running the halls and buffet unsupervised.  As for the Ports of call, Nassau amazingly never changes, with all the ships in port every day and no improvement in the infrastructure, next time we will stay on board.  Freeport was much nicer, should probably have that as a main stop in place of Nassau.
