Member Review: scoutsaj's Carnival Sunshine Review
Cozumel
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

We had been to all four locations before, we chose not to do any excursions this cruise due to use having another cruise in Sept. Things have changed, bartering is becoming harder to do as the cost just to relax on a beach cost more. In Cozumel we didn’t go to our normal location Playa Mia, because of the $30 cost to enter due to them adding a few waterslides. We went down the road a little father paradise beach.
We didn’t get of the ship in Belize, it has never been a location we enjoyed, unless you have an excursion.
Island of Rotan Honduras, This use to be one of our favorite locations, we when we arrived at Mahogany Bay we not in the area that we normally dock at Gavel Bay, closer to the city. As a results the cost for us to get to the West in would have cost us much more. We decided to check out the beach there, it was nice but over packed with 5000 + people having Glory and Sunshine both docked there. We walked around for about an hour before looking for a beach chair, then took the nature trial back to the ship, where we relaxed on the deck vs. the beach like we were hoping.
In Costa Maya, we again got off the ship, did some shopping and relaxed, the ship was to leave a 2pm so we had limited amount of time. The waves were a little choppy so we did not swim. Bartering here is still good, and we were able to get a few descent purchases.
