7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 24, 2016
Ship: Carnival Sunshine
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 1582
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The cruise director, Matt, was engaging and funny.  We also very much enjoyed the evening entertainment, including the musical/dance galas, as well as the unique magic show.  The food was, overall, tasty and nicely presented by an attentive serve staff.

There were a few challenges, though.  The Liquid Lounge had so many obstructed views that it was difficult finding a good seat anywhere above the main floor.  The most annoying feature of the ship, however, was the pervasive sewer odor throughout some of the hallways and even inside some staterooms.  The crew attempted to alleviate it, but the smell persisted.

The steward did a great job. The hallway to the cabin had a faint sewer odor, and at times it was noticeable in our bathroom.

Ship Tip

The burgers on the Lido deck are awesome for lunch, and dinners in the Sunrise dining area are varied, hot, and well -prepared. Enjoy quiet moments on the comfy lounges and hammocks located on the adults-only Serenity deck--one of Sunshine's best features.
