This was only our second cruise so we don't have a lot of comparison, but we did note a few things. Embarkation was extremely easy and fast.....much better than our last experience in Baltimore. Once on the boat it was chaotic, which I ... Read more

First time cruiser who traveled with a group of 18 from age 3 up to 63. Ports of call included Half Moon Cay, Nassau, and Freeport. Check in was relatively painless despite the fact that the computers went down at one point. The Cruise ... Read more

We were a family of 5 - two adults, 2 kids (6 & 7), and a grandparent. We booked this specific cruise primarily because we loved Half Moon Cay so much the first time, and we had been on 3 previous Carnival cruises. We understand that ... Read more

To begin, my husband and I planned our cruise for our first anniversary and my birthday, which are just a day apart. We are far from being wealthy, but took along the $400 we had gotten together for travel expenses. After all, I had been ... Read more

My overall impression of this cruise is that it is ok if you are a spring breaker. That is, if you will be too drunk to notice all that is iffy about this ship. My husband and I decided to take my parents on a short cruise to celebrate ... Read more

My Carnival Victory cruise over the Easter Weekend was a mixture of good and bad. The good included a spacious cabin, generally tasty food at the buffet, a nice aft pool area, and the staff in general. The bad included the cramped and ... Read more

Went on the Fascination March 21 - 26, 2016. Of course it was Spring Break and tons of kids on board. The kids were the only group who were in the both hot tubs during the entire cruise (not on the Serenity Deck of course). The only ... Read more

Boarding the ship was a smooth process. Disembarkation was also easy. It took us 20 minutes to get to our car from the time our section was called. They ran ahead of schedule and the process was quick and easy. All the staff in the ... Read more

I've sailed Disney, Royal Carribean, Norwegian and now Carnival. My biggest concern with Carnival is food safety. The first item I ordered to eat, there was a hair in my food. This happens and isn't a big deal to me, and they were ... Read more

First of all, Charleston is the worst port ever. You might as well be going to a shed to leave your vehicle, for $85 parking!!! They sneak that in there while you're in line. This is the most unorganized thing I've ever seen. There is no ... Read more

I have to admit after reading all the negative reviews I thought twice about booking on the Sunshine. I'm glad I ignored them. You get out of a cruise what you make of it. The new décor with the refurbishing was much more ... Read more

This was our first cruise, so we chose a short 4 day cruise to get a feel for it. We normally vacation at resorts. Check-in was not as long as anticipated. We arrived at the ship at 12:30 and were in our room by 1:30. We found our ... Read more

We previously sailed on this vessel when it was the Destiny and had a great cruise. Since the makeover to Sunshine, many of the features of the Destiny that appealed to us are gone. The ship was fully booked. There were insufficient staff ... Read more

to summarize: there were some really good things, but few and far between. biggest beef was with service and our rooms (6342 and 6340) that were falling apart, they didn't do much about it. Clean ship, rooms were pretty tight, we had ... Read more
