Second cruise after refurb, lots of issues but overall good cruise.: Carnival Sunshine Cruise Review by NavyFrog
Overall Member Rating
Second cruise after refurb, lots of issues but overall good cruise.
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
We did excursions through www.cruisingexcursions.com and felt they did a great job, despite Carnival not allowing them to bring their shuttle buses to the port. We went to all the same spots as the Carnival excursion but usually arrived sooner and had more time there.
The food was delicious, our main dining waiter/waitress were excellent. The Italian specialty restaurant was FAB as was the steakhouse (3 hr dining experience)! Our 2 yr old used the children's club and was happy most of the time. There were a few staff that went above and beyond. As for entertainment, we loved the piano bar guy and there were a few game shows that we saw but otherwise, with such a port intensive week, we were exhausted most nights. We were told by some staff that they had not been paid for their time on board setting up the ship or since they started sailing, which I think was horrible! We enjoyed the ports but the ship was not on par with the "hype" that was created. Maybe after they worked out the issues it would have been better. Less

Horrible cabin....don't choose this one if you want to sleep. It is under a disco and extremely loud. Our 2 yr old couldn't sleep the first night and we were finally able to move rooms the second afternoon.
