Sunshine missing on Carnival Sunshine cruise

Sail Date: October 08, 2016

Reviewed: 8 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The air temperature in enclosed public areas, including restaurants, was uncomfortably cool/cold.  Many people, by necessity, wore cold weather clothing in these interior areas.  In restaurants, food, intended to be served hot, became cold before it could be eaten.  Never once did I see anyone from food service ever check the food temperature.

The quality and variety of food available at the restaurants and buffet was lacking. The menus at the restaurants and buffet were similar from day-to-day, with only minor changes in some categories. New choices very limited.  BORING!!!!  The temperature in the restaurant did not help the atmosphere.



Better control of HVAC.  More menu variety.


Loss of DIRECTV signal.  Message on screen indicated signal loss caused because of geographical position of ship.  Signal loss continued for last half of cruise.  Signal loss message was still displayed upon return to NYC port.  HOGWASH!!!!!!!

If traveling to an area where outdoor temp is cool or cold. Be prepared for interior enclosed areas of ship to be uncomfortably cool and cold!
