After sailing on other Carnival Cruise Ships, the "refurbished" Sunshine was a total disappointment.  First, the delay in boarding the ship because of a Gastrointestinal outbreak and extra cleaning needed was understandable, but the uncomfortable conditions in the long lines required a lot of standing!  The service, other than our Room Steward and a couple of servers, was very poor and the attitude of the waiters was subpar, to say the least. One in our party has been sick every since we got back. I question the fact that we were not updated as to any additional problems on our cruise.  We should have been kept informed and updated on a regular basis as to what areas to avoid!

The Sunshine is very chopped up and it is not easy to get from Fwd to Aft. No deck that goes all the way around on the outside. It was impossible to use sit at the pool. Seats were saved for all day long. The Serenity deck was the same, nothing available.
