Review summary

We had a wonderful cruise. The waters are a little ruff going down the coastline but it's not going to ruin your cruise. This was our 4th time on the Sunshine and we will go again.


4 out of 5
Embarkation was fine just a little different from all of the other ports we have sailed from but not a deal breaker. You pay to park, drive and drop off your luggage, drive and park. Then you walk to the building were you check in , then wait to be shuttled to the ship.

We've never really had any bad food with Carnival. The steakhouse is wonderful.

Onboard Activities

Love all of the things you can do during the day. Just check out the Funtimes daily or just go lay by the pool in the serenity area.
