Carnival Sunshine Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Review summaryThis was my first cruise since 2011 and I loved every minute of it. I met a lot of cool people on this trip and would definitely travel like this again. There were no issues that the crew couldn't fix for our group asides from the speed of the internet. I would definitely travel on the Carnival Sunshine again and with Carnival Cruise Line!
Food and Dining
This lounge was always packed for the comedy shows so make sure you get there early if you want good seats. Also, the Punchliner drink was VERY good and I highly recommend it in the pitcher for a group of 2-4.
Guy's Burger Joint
Now I had been thinking about Guy's Burgers since I booked this cruise. they never disappointed and I tried the pig patty for the first time and I loved it! Will definitely be trying the different burgers on my future cruises.
The temperature of the water was great! The ones not on the serenity deck were in the perfect spot to enjoy the dive in movies but when not on the serenity deck you will have children swimming in the hot tub as if it is the pool. So if you want to actually relax in the hot tub I suggest the one on the Serenity Deck
Did not find this section until the last day but I did enjoy playing up there. Drunk Twister on the ship went a lot better than it sounds like it should lOl.
The Fun Shops
If you forget anything I'm pretty sure they will have it and I do mean anything lOl.
Great way to get away from kids and relax. Also took some amazing pictures of the sunset from this deck
Despite being difficult for me to find (granted I'm not the best with directions) I did enjoy the fitness area once I got there. It is a bit small but it has pretty much all you need to work any part of your body. I love that the treadmills have a TV option to get you through your cardio.
When I tell you this was the place to be from 11pm until 2:30-3:00am I'm not exaggerating! We always talked about going here at night for the club because of DJ Devine! Plus me and my best friend were always turning up in there lOl. This lounge was also a lot larger for when they had comedy shows so it was easier to get seats.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Learn the layout of the ship early on to prevent getting lost. The Sunshine is a very large ship and I spent a lot of time walking around lost because I got turned around on the ship. Granted it was great for my step count but it did get frustrating sometimes trying to locate certain places.
