8 Night Southern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 26, 2016
Ship: Carnival Sunshine
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 6306
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Sunshine is a very nice ship after it was refurbished from the Destiny (was on it before it was done).  The Havana Bar, the Red Frog Pub/beer, Guys Burgers, and the Blue Iguana bar are a very nice addition to the Carnival family.  The Punchliner comedy club is nice but the design is stupid (which you already know).  At the Punchliner I saw to many people not standing in line and sneaking in both of the backdoors after we were coming in--this needs to change.


Went during Easter break (Spring break) and there were approximately 1100 kids on board.  Way to many kids on the ship and to many parents not controlling them.  Ship staff could not control this and did a very poor job in trying to prevent this or intervene (Security).  I saw Security standing around (in groups of 2-3) to much in one place doing nothing.  Incidents would happen in front of them and they did nothing and when I said something they would just look at us strange.   Security needs to be trained and education on how do deal with these issues and make the parents responsible for their children so these issues do not happen in future sailings.

We loved the room with the balcony but the location right by the stairs/elevators was terrible because the kids used it as a playground and hangout spot.

Ship Tip

Sunshine is a nice ship. Be careful were you get your room on any ship. Stay clear of the stair/elevators because people (especially kids) are rude and make a lot of noise. Havana Bar, Guy's Burgers, Red Frog Pub (beer), and the Blue Iguana are a very nice addition to Carnival family.
