It was more than worth the money. Guaranteed to have fun if you go on a Carnival Cruise. This was my third Cruise, second with Carnival, and will not be my last. I plan on a third with Carnival next year.

First cruise by dover1178

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends
This was my first cruise. I had a great time. Tons of things to do in Nassau. Everything is in close proximity to the port. We walked to Junkaroo beach after our excursion. The beer prices were cheap. The water was crystal clear and the beach was clean. We also walked to several shops and bars near the port. In freeport as soon as you get off the boat there are shops and bars. The excursion was great. The ship had tons of activities. Plenty of places to lay out and tan. Overall a great experience

Five days of relaxation by Proffesorbig

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
I would recommend this cruise to anyone, but specifically it is a great cruise for first timers. The food is absolutely fabulous, Ema the cruise director is a hoot. The staff is great, and extremely attentive. Great opportunity to take 5 days and just relax, away from hustle and bustle. The Serenity decks (3 of them) allow you piece and quite away from the children.

Very disappointed about the service from the tour excursion inside the ship the person in charge was so rude with me to be late and he kicked out my father and daughter from the bus on the land and sea tour because we arrived 2 minutes late for the reason the my husband have a bad knee and can't walk fast but my parents came from Puerto Rico after hurricane maria and have to go to this experience wasn't good and when finally we all went in the tour every body was laughing at us we we a group of 6 celebrating my parents birthday

Not up to suite standard by achen6623

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)
We have always cruised in suite staterooms. This is the first time with Carnival because the Captain suite of the Sunshine ship attracted us. The Captain suite is OK although it is still not the same class as the NCL's Heaven suites. I don't think we are going to cruise with Carnival again because of our horrible experience with the embark and disembark.

Great time! by spomail

The only disappointment was we were supposed to be in port for 2 nights - we were unable to enjoy time at the beach due to the ship having to pull anchor "due to operational considerations" and sail out at 5pm and dock again in the morning.

Aside from my luggage not arriving to the stateroom until about 10 and the shower flooding 5 times, the experience was great! I suggest renting mopeds on the island so you can see everything!!!

IT'S CARNIVAL by POORPoorpoor

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
Cruise was better than OK. Boarding was just OK. Leaving was worst we have ever endured! NEVER, NEVER, NEVER AGAIN! Looking down at your (not my) overall rating I feel that you are stacking the deck in your favor! My estimate would be certainly no more than 3.0.

Great Canada/New England Cruse by tdelgado1

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
This was an excellent cruise. My wife and I booked this cruse to celebrate or 30th anniversary. From the minute we got to the check in to the day we disembarked we were greeted with friendly staff that want to help us in any way they could. The ports we stopped and excursions we took at each of them were amazing. Over all this was one of the best cruises we have been on!

This was my first time doing a New England cruise. I absolutely loved New York City! Went there 4 days before sailing and got to see the sight. I was a little let down on Boston. I think I was expecting more. The staff, as always, were amazing!

Great Cruise on the Carnival Sunshine by bjones208

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)
Great cruise on a ship, Carnival Sunshine, that I looked forward to for many years! First cruise that I have gone on and had less enjoyment, primarily because of the location of our rooms at the back of the ship! I should have gone with my gut instinct and not accepted anything less than a midship room location!
