EPIC...Loved just about everything. Me and my husband are FIRST Time CRUISERS. We celebrated our 30th Anniversary. Thirty years of FUNTASTIC LOVE. Thirty two other family members and friends tagged along with us. They and CARNIVAL SUNSHINE crew made us feel very very extra SPECIAL. The LOVE we have four one another and our family and friends is just phenomenon!!! The entertainment was top notch, the food was superb, the crew warm and friendly.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
My stateroom steward was Lorenio. He was excellent. He always greeted my husband and I with a warm smile and kept our room cleaned and organized. He remembered our name and called us by it. He wished my husband and I a happy 30th Anniversary and left in our room two gift cards. Waiters were great as well. Everyone was so warm and friendly.

Ship Quality

The ship's layout and design was fine. All areas were well-maintained and clean

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
My cabin was great. It was enough space for me and my husband. He had sufficient amount of space for our luggage and clothes. Bathroom was enough room for one person. We spent 90% of our time hanging out with family and friends, other cruisers, Emma and her crew, Lido deck, The Punchliner Comedy Club, Limelight Lounge, Liquid NightClub, Ocean Plaza, etc.

Ship tip

One piece of advice from me would to be ENJOY LIFE on the Carnival. You only live once!

No excursion. The ship was late getting there. We did not do an excursion. However we connected with locals and toured the area. We went shopping and also spent a little time at Tasters.
