December 2014 - Carnival Sunshine to Caribbean - Eastern
This was a first cruise for my boyfriend, so we were hoping for a stress-free, calm cruise experience, and we got it. The staff of the Carnival Sunshine were super efficient, and all the services and scheduled excursions went smoothly. We were never bored for a moment. We especially enjoyed the trivia games on the Promenade, and the sing-alongs in the Piano Bar. The food was spectacular! I can't say which we enjoyed more: trying new flavours at the 4-course formal dinners, or scrounging for yummy bites at the countless food stations at the buffet! Our stateroom with balcony on Deck 6 was very comfortable, and my boyfriend was really impressed with the spaciousness. If you are looking for a cruise that's very hip, or edgy, or luxurious, the Sunshine may not be the perfect choice. However, this time I really wanted comfort, ease, peace, and great service, and that's what I found with Carnival. Thanks for a lovely time!
