I was very pleasantly surprised. We were on this ship for a 4th of July weekend trip and I really did not like the food, the noise, the crowds or much about the 4 days. However, it was like they redid everything. I don't have any ... Read more

After seeing some reviews on this ship we were a little hesitant to book this cruise. In the end, we trusted our experience with previous Carnival cruises and went for it, and we were glad we did! It could not have been any better. The ... Read more

We booked this cruise for our honeymoon, and we expected it to be fun, but the negative overshadowed the positives on this trip. We carried our own luggage on, and used the only available elevator to get to deck 12. We waited while other ... Read more

I won this cruise from a local casino. The ship is older but it has been refurbished. We were impressed with the cleanliness overall. There are several laundry facilities onboard which made ironing, washing and drying our own clothes much ... Read more

We were celebrating our 40th anniversary. I am in a wheelchair and was worried about being able to get around, no problems there. People were so nice and considerate. We didn't move around so much, as to stay out of people's way. When we ... Read more

We had not been on a Carnival ship in two years and were happy a new-to-NYC Carnival ship was here to try out. We arrived at the pier around 11:15am and easily found a parking space. We did think it very odd that people were still ... Read more

Service was very good both from cabin steward, bar, dining room and Lido. Food was very good except I found that some food on Lido (pork chops, beef) seemed to be tough and may have been recycled. Entertainment staff was very good except ... Read more

This was our 4th Carnival cruise, having previously been on the Conquest, Glory, and Freedom. The Sunshine just doesn't hold up to those ships. As many have discussed, this ship really is too small for the amount of passengers. On ... Read more

This is my 6th cruise on Carnival and the worst thus far. When I researched the ship, it showed that is had been recently refurbished but the ship is quite old looking onboard compared to other ships. We had a balcony and the glass is so ... Read more

Considerations: • We are a family of three in our 30’s with a 3 year old • We didn’t eat in the MDR • We didn’t go to any of the shows or comedy acts, so I can’t comment on the space or ... Read more

This was not my first cruise, however, it was my first and last with Carnival. The only reason we booked this cruise was because we live in NJ and it sailed from Manhattan. The food in the lido buffet was pathetic. Nothing in the buffet ... Read more

I would have liked to give it a 3 (average), but of the nearly 40 cruises we've been on, it was definitely in the bottom 10%, For me, the crowded nature of the ship - a result of Carnival adding cabins and reducing the public space when ... Read more
