We have cruised with Carnival many times but this is our last. They have gotten progressively worse and I will explain why. We had a family of 13 who went with us and we chose carnival because the price was right. Sometimes you get what ... Read more

Great time on this older ship. We had cabin M3 (porthole) and had plenty of room. Our steward I Kommang was an absolute delight. He went above and beyond making sure that we had everything we needed. Since I bought alcohol for my room, he ... Read more

Getting on the ship was easy. I have difficulty with walking, so yes had to walk a bit. Food is fair and did not like the steakhouse, I cancelled my 2nd night. Food quality has come down a notch or two. Surprised you had to pay for ... Read more

I have never been on a Carnival cruise before, and I do not think I will cruise with this line again. We had a decent time, nothing spectacular. The cruise ship was crowded for sure, and if you wanted any sort of seat by one of the pools, ... Read more

This was our third cruise, all with Carnival, and by far our worst to date. I'll start with the good first, then get into our issues with it. First, the ship was extremely stable and motion was not an issue at all for either of us. ... Read more

We arrived at the terminal and had priority boarding due to the suite that we got. We also had "faster to the fun", which I still don't know what it does exactly. Getting on the ship and everything was easy and only took about ... Read more

After 20 Carnival Cruises I have to give the crew of the Pride top rating. The itinerary was just so-so, but we still had one of the best times ever. Our house keeper, Num, the best yet! If you do the Casino, this crew is awesome. If you ... Read more

We decided to go on this Cruise because we had a nice long holiday weekend. However, upon boarding the boat I knew we had made a mistake. The wait staff wasn't very friendly or helpful. The boat was old, dirty and had a sewer smell the ... Read more

I have been cruising for many years and often on Carnival. They have the best rates by far, and until this cruise I have always been happy with the food. I was disappointed that quality steaks and lobster were additional charges, in past ... Read more

First off let me say that I was super skeptical after reading all of the negative reviews about the Carnival Sunshine and to my delight I experienced nothing that was said about all the negative reviews. My family and I ported out of ... Read more

We had a great time, I recommend the Sunshine Ship, they have a lot of activities, the services from the crew members are incredible, the room was little, but the staff always kept it clean and neat. The only thing I would add to this trip ... Read more

Initially the excitement for our cruise was beyond belief, however when arriving to Charleston it dramatically decreased. Everyone was rushed through the embarkation process as if we were in a cattle barn. The customer service during the ... Read more

We would never do this cruise again. We are in our 50's & our kids 23 & 13 yrs old. If you are not interested in drinking, gambling & partying, forget it. There was very little to do with our kids. I should have listened to ... Read more
