Review summary

We had a great time on the Sunshine! We had some rain on embarkation day and the first Sea Day but nothing too crazy. Lots to do on board and we made a lot of friends at the casino bar. We finally got to participate in the Love & Marriage show! Lots of fun. The staff was impeccable: Trinidad and Tsvetelin (Steve) in the MDR, Pete in the Piano Bar, and Ernesto at the casino bar. We had beautiful weather in the ports. The last night they brought back the Epic Rock show. Definitely see it if you have the chance!

Ship Quality

This was the smallest ship we've been on. We couldn't get the layout for the first couple days but eventually it wasn't too bad.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We stayed in cabin 1474. Typical interior room. The layout made it seem much roomier though!

Ship tip

The Piano bar was our favorite place to spend time. Pete is hilarious after 10:30 when it's 18+ time.

Take a taxi and hit the beach! We went to Isla Verde. About 10-15 minutes by taxi.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

3 out of 5
We definitely need to book an excursion here next time. Not much to do right off the boat except the typical port shops.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

Again, not too much to do right off the ship except the typical port shops. Definitely book an excursion here! We will be visiting Maho beach on our next visit.
