Ship of the Lost

I'm an avid cruiser platinum with Carnival and many other lines. On Sunshine tranatlantic cruise from Barcelona to New Orleans, If you were a first time cruiser you might think everything was ok,or if you just cruise to drink and don't care about much this ship would be fine. But as one who cruises for the sites and things to do on a cruise ship I'm very disappointed, they say this is like a new ...

I want my old Carnival back, I just got off of the Sunshine on it's transatlantic 16 night cruise. In one word HORRIBLE, and I will detail most of the things that went wrong. You can't make a silk purse out of a sows ear, this kept coming to me over and over during the cruise. I am a platinum member and should be a diamond since I never got credit for the cruises I took on the Marti Gras, and ...

Travelled on the Carnival Sunshine Barcelona to New Orleans 1st of November to the 17th of November. Cabin 8315 balcony very nice cabin, roomy and clean. We chose anytime dinning; we dinned in the sunrise restaurant. First night we were shown to a table at the rear of the restaurant, waited about 15 minuets for the waiter to take our order. Waited a further 20 minuets for the starter to arrive. ...

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 ...

Great Cruise On A Not So Great Ship

My husband and I are Platinum level cruisers and have been on eight different Carnival ships, so we were excited to book the 16 day transatlantic cruise from Barcelona to New Orleans leaving Barcelona on November 1, 2013. We enjoyed the cruise but were very disappointed with the ship itself, which we were led to believe was a totally new ship with a name change to prove it. It is not a totally new ...

I really meant to get this review done much sooner, then I kind of forgot about it, and then I saw all the negative reviews of the Transatlantic cruise and, I must say, I am shocked--it hardly seems like these people were on the same ship I was on. So here goes: Embarkation--things went very smoothly. The only disappointment I had was with the FTTF program not quite working out. I think there was ...

Mostly disappointed

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Pros: 1) Service--Overall the service was outstanding especially in the bars and MDR. 2) Cheers Package--The drink prices were very high, so we benefited from buying this package that allows you to try a variety of drinks (under $10) with a reasonable limitation of 15 drinks per person per day. Two problems we see with the success of this program is that Carnival requires that everyone in the ...

We flew to Barcelona, Spain on October 30th, 2013 and spent an enjoyable days in Barcelona before getting on the newly refurbished "Carnival Sunshine." The Carnival Sunshine is the newest ship in Carnival’s fleet. They are considering it a “new” ship as it just went through a $155 million dollar facelift! This is the Carnival Destiny, that was built in 1996, that went to dry dock for two months ...

We booked this cruise for our honeymoon. Everything was wonderful. This was one of the last Mediterranean cruises for the Sunshine before it relocated to the Caribbean. Our favorite on-board activities: 88 Piano Bar The steakhouse was phenomenal and worth the money. We got a free bottle of wine for booking on the first night Trivia contest in the Red Frog Pub The crew: Fantastic as always. ...

For those booked on the Carnival Sunshine when it arrives in the Caribbean you are in for a treat! We recently returned from the 9 night Western Mediterranean cruise from Barcelona to Venice, calling at Marseille, Livorno, Civitavecchia, Naples, Messina, Dubrovnik and Venice. This ship has all the usual Carnival fun and hospitality, but in a lovely package. The refit has been very well done, all ...
