June 2015 - Carnival Sunshine to Caribbean - Eastern
Not sure where to even begin. We recently went on the Carnival Sunshine. Let me say first off the only reason for 4 stars is that the ship was a little too crowded for my liking. That aside....it was amazing! The drinks were yummy....we met some amazing people....and had great staff! Our wait staff in the dinning hall was impressive! Dennis and Tamara were so nice and my kids loved them. The room steward Dewa was AWESOME! By the second day my kids already had secret hand shakes with him. Our room was cozy but on a cruise you just don't have the luxury of much space so that's pretty typical. The comedian on the first portion of the cruise was hilarious. We did not enjoy the one at the later part of the cruise. Shows were crowded. I did enjoy having a balcony where i could get away from the crowds and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Onto the fun stuff....the islands! We visited St. Marten which was absolutely stunning. I would go back there in a heartbeat. St. Kitts we did the dolphins and although quite expensive I feel you must do this at least once. San Juan we were able to experience the culture and beautiful buildings. And Turks the water was warm and clear and amazing.
Overall, amazing trip....great memories....but I think i would consider a smaller ship for less crowds next time.
