Ship Facts: Carnival Sunshine Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Sunshine Deck Plans
Definitely Spring Break

Just got off the "new" Sunshine. We took this cruise because we needed a 3 party cabin for other family members and RCCL was booked full for that class that week. So... it was definitely Spring Break on board. Serenity area (adults) was always full+. Main pool area was mobbed. We found quiet spots outside on Deck 4 to veg. Our wait staff was excellent (dinner & room) but other family cabin down hall had newbie maid they were NOT happy with. She didn't do up their room one day at all for instance!!

The Havana Bar area was wonderful--best kept secret we found on Cruise Critic-Thanks. We ate breakfasts (omelets) and lunches (stir fry bowls) overlooking the stern wake in peace and relative quiet. Other foods from the frenzied, overcrowded, poor seating Market Place buffet area could also be taken back there. It was slowly discovered by more people as the cruise week progressed. Pour your own beer dispenser was interesting. Have a second glass handy. It is based on time and you get a huge head no matter how careful, so a 2nd glass handy gives you a full headless glass in the end with two settled and poured together. Guy's Burgers were a deserved hit. Long lines moved quite quickly.

Several of the crew AND OFFICERS were pushy through doorways, scowling, grumpy.

We were reminded that Carnival is not up to RCCL or Princess standards.

Swamp Thang Band at Mixology and Piano Bar had fun entertainment.
