First, I must say, this cruise was a deal (price) considering the awesome ports we visited: St. Marten, St. Kitts, Puerto Rico, and Grand Turk. So considering I paid a bargain price, I feel I received what I paid for. She is a pretty ... Read more

This was my first cruise ever and I have a fear of water and boats. Overall I have to say Carnival Sunshine did a really good job. The room was better than I thought and the crew was awesome. Every time we left the room, we came ... 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 the 6th Carnival Cruise I have been on, and might be the last. I've cruised the Mediterranean, and the Caribbean multiple times, and have always been pleased with Carnival. This cruise might have been so awful due to the spring ... Read more

This is a lovely ship, probably the largest we have sailed on in our 30 plus years of cruising. We always go in the spring time and the spring breakers have never bothered us, until this year. And it wasn't the college students you ... Read more
