8 Night Southern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 16, 2016
Ship: Carnival Sunshine
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 10129
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 2 years ago

We booked a spa balcony on deck 10.  For starters our balcony was not covered.  All of the other balconies had a roof except our deck.  We complained and were told that a roof was not guaranteed yet it doesn't state this on the web site.  We could only use the balcony 25 percent of the time because the wind and rain would drench the balcony.  Whereas our friends on deck 11 who were covered could use theirs.  The boat smells like smoke everywhere around deck 4-6.  The Casino has poor ventilation and the smoke goes into the atrium.  It made me sick.  Also the layout is odd where you have to walk thru the casino to get to the bars and coffee stand.  The staff was amazing and the cruise director was nice.  The entertainment was excellent.  The room was clean and overall the ports were great.  Inwould reccomend taking this itinerary on the magic not the sunshine in the future.
