Review summary

We really enjoyed the entertainment and the comedians on the Carnival Sunshine. Our cruise director, Emma, was amazing! We don't think she ever slept because she was always interacting with the passengers and always had a smile on her face! Every staff member that we had contact with, servers, bartenders, cleaning staff, entertainers and the clerks in the shops on the ship were helpful and a pleasure to deal with. We really enjoyed chatting with Luxi, the Manager of "A Cherry on Top" the on board candy shop. The spa is also beautiful and very relaxing. My husband had a massage and I had a manicure and pedicure. Julia was especially helpful and she did an amazing job. We cannot wait for our next cruise!

Our only complaint is that the 2 pools were not nearly large enough for the number of passengers.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The cabin was the perfect size for a couple. It was clean and quiet. The balcony was nice but very hot because there was no breeze.

Ship tip

Remember to take advantage of the omelet stations for breakfast, located in the Havana Bar.
