Okay, where to begin, let me start by saying this was my second cruise and my wife’s 40th so I am seeing some things for the first time. We paid for the FTTF (Faster To The Fun) and I believe it was exactly that for the better part. ... Read more

The Carnival Sunshine was a very pleasant surprise to a jaded cruiser like myself. I have cruised Carnival before and have been very disappointed, but the Sunshine has inspired me to give the line a closer look! The public spaces, the ... Read more

We were signed up to go the the Bahamas and Turks and Caicos, but we were re-routed to Saint John, NB and Halifax, NS due to Hurricane Matthew. I was very pleased with how Carnival handled re-routing us: we were given a couple days' ... Read more

Wanted to cruise New England/Canada and chose Carnival due to past positive cruises on other ships from their fleet. This ship is difficult to navigate from aft to mid and forward on many deck levels. Elevators noted not to stop on mid ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we have never gone north on a cruise and were anxious to visit Maine and Canadian ports. We were looking forward to seeing the colorful fall, but because of the hot dry summer, leaves had not changed yet. ... Read more

First time for New England cruise. Older passengers, great ship, and wonderful staff. Food was average but the service was great. Ports were alright but not something we would rush back to. Ship was not crowded even though it was sold out. ... Read more

We were on the Sunshine New England Cruise Sept 17- 24, 2016. The over trip was ok. The food in the main dining room could have been better. Chicken breast dried out. Baked potatoes was cold and hard. The butter wouldn't even melt. I ... Read more

We are in our early 50's and have sailed on Carnival several times. I enjoy the entertainment, trivia, and comedy shows. But I have noticed over the years that the food quality and variety has declined. The buffet on the Lido looked the ... Read more

We spent 3 days in Manhattan before the cruise and on cruise day took an Uber to the Manhattan Cruise terminal about 10:30 AM. Traffic is pretty heavy, but it's New York, so just plan accordingly. We had stayed near Times Square so it's ... Read more
