Ship Facts: Carnival Sunshine Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Sunshine Deck Plans
Carnival Sunshine Transatlantic

Cons - The renovation on the Sunshine has not been completed due to the large number of water leaks on the ship. The leaks are plumbing issues.

They have removed all seating on the Promenade deck, for relaxation most folks had to seat in the bar areas. Also, except for the rooms, no 120 V outlets European 220 only this will be a problem in US.

Interior rooms have no furniture, Carnival please try and justify this issue.

Guest Services poor at best, it was taking days to return calls, most of the time they did not return calls.

Should have been a 15 day cruise, we arrived on the Mississippi River on Saturday about 1 pm and dropped anchor for about 4 hours arriving at terminal Saturday night at 10 pm. Debarkation started Sunday at 6am.

Bar service below acceptable, rude and arrogant behavior from bar staff more often than not.

The ship played the same movies every three days, for a transatlantic cruise this was difficult for 11 sea days.

Note: No more Carnival transatlantic cruises for us. Only 5-7 days.

Pros - Dining service and food excellent. Dining choices were better than most Carnival Ships we have sailed on.

The sports activities area were exceptional, played the putting golf many times.
