Ship Facts: Carnival Sunshine Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Sunshine Deck Plans
Best vacation ever

The trips started out great. We arrived in Venice and made it to the ship without any major complaint. They were a little disorganized with the bags at the airport, but I think that was part of a language/cultural barrier. Once at the port and on the ship, things were smooth. The ship is advertised as completely refurbished, but this is misleading. Parts of the ship are completely refurbished. There are still plumbing problems. I saw a lot of drips in the hallways with buckets underneath them and there was rust on the balcony railings. Nothing major, but it definately wasn't completely remodeled.

Our biggest problem was noise from the Liquid Lounge below us. It bleed through the cabin floor and kept us up until 3 AM one night. They compensated us fairly for our inconvienence, but it was totally unnecessary. There wasn't a large enough crowd in the Liquid Lounge to justify keeping the music going to 3 AM. They could have moved the venue to the Piano bar. There are no cabins above or below the piano bar and it would have accomidated the amount of people partying.

We had some rough seas the last couple of nights on the cruise, but it couldn't be avoided. I would suggest getting a hotel in Barcelona an extra night. The city is beautiful and the people who disembarked and went straight to the airport got cheated.
