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

Go very early in the a.m.to get a deck chair. They are all gone by 10 a.m.

Sushi restaurant was GREAT! Great staff and the food was amazing, some of the best sushi I've ever had. Lacked a number of hot tubs to support the number of people using them plus the water was lukewarm, not hot at all. Ropes course was good for kids but not so much for adults.

You can always find a table back by the Havana bar for breakfast and lunch.

Great for first timers, small and would probably get boring if you’ve taken other bigger ships.

I would suggest another ship. I don't know if it was because it was only a 4 night cruise but it definitely felt like it was a low budget cruise. I would NOT recommend this ship. You should really consider renovating the ship. It did not meet the mark for me, a seasoned cruiser.

Get to the casino tables early in order to get a seat. if you do not like variable wait times for a dining table, suggest you do not go with open seating.

I would skip this boat and pick another ship.

Guy's Hamburger Joint is not to be missed. Good quality meat and great toppings(grilled mushrooms/onions).

The Hammocks above the waterfall are the best area to catch a great tan and some ZZZ's

I just wish they have a newer ship

This is a smaller ship but the crew was impeccable. It's nice to be on a small, albeit older ship. There was plenty to see and do and never a long line.

Don't plan on swimming, children take over the one small pool available on the Carnival Sunshine.

The dining room has good food for breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner. Just note if you have a time limit such as an excursion, you may want to go to the 5th floor or Lido Deck for faster service. Get balcony suite if you can afford it. There is a jacuzzi tub and remodeled cabin.

impossible to get a seat outside after nine a.m. so don't take advantage of evening shows if you want to swim the next day.
