Verified Review
8 Night Southern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 26, 2016
Ship: Carnival Sunshine
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 6196
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The ship itself was very nice and the ports of call Aruba, Curacao, & Grand Turk were fun.  Our favorite was Curacao, with the oldest continuous synagogue and the curacao liquor factory (We liked the new Tamarind flavor the best.). 

There were a lot of changes since I had sailed last 2 years ago.  The buffet was closed from 2:30 to 5:30 and if you wanted anything to eat you had to wait or eat at Guys Burgers (which we did not care for) or pizza.  We had hoped for a salad and or fruit, something light.  Sometimes the Deli was also open.  We also did not like that they no longer served Bailey's Irish Cream, but some other terribly sweet off brand.  The drink package you can by for the whole cruise includes not only alcohol drinks, but specialty coffees & teas, as well as bottled water, but not the water bottled water in your cabin or bottles of wine.  The comedians were all very funny and the shows nice.  we also enjoyed having high tea on one of the sea days.
