You get what you pay for..... in life and in cruising

My wife and I are fairly frequent cruisers, but we recently took our first cruise on the Carnival Sunrise, from New York up the eastern coast of New England and Canada with scheduled stops in Halifax, St. John, NB, ...

Ok. Not Up To Standard

Sunrise is beautiful, recently been refurbished. But... with all the concerns about germs, why did they put hand push buttons to open auto doors on Lido deck? Dirty hands repeatedly touching these then sitting ...

Underwhelming

I’ve waited 20 years to take this cruise but it was my worst experience. The debarkation process was chaotic. We had FTTF, checked in, breezed through security, and then were called to board immediately. ...

Enjoyable cruise, exceeded expectations. Except the ship.

This was our first Carnival cruise. My wife and I are in our late 50’s early 60s. We’ve sailed with Royal Caribbean, Princess, NCL, and for our honeymoon, Home Line. We hesitated sailing with Carnival due to ...

New Engladn/Canada Cruise out of NYC

We always wanted to see the change of leaves in the North East, so we choose this cruise as a way to get us 'up there' in October. While the weather didn't cooperate (unseasonably warm) the cruise was good fun. Ship ...

Food was really good I thought, and the entertainment was excellent!!!

My only complaint is they turned the 4th floor theater into a Nightclub after the show and we could hear pounding music until 2 AM, hard to sleep through. I complained and Carnival moved us to the 8th floor, very ...

Too Many Inconveniences

The embarkation was a nightmare. Not sure what caused the delays and the backup, but there were not enough Carnival agents on duty to help expedite the check-in process. We booked this cruise to see the New ...

If you like to wait in long lines, this is the cruise for you

We just returned from a 7 day cruise through New England on the Sunshine. In summary--long lines for everything, worst food I have ever had on a cruise, good, but limited, entertainment, and our aft balcony room ...

Suites guests are not treated VIP on Carnival as the other cruise lines do

Bad reviews first: Boarding was terrible. We booked the Capitan suite which is supposed to be a top notch suite, but we were not treated as VIP's as the other cruise lines like NCL or Holland America. All suites ...

Nice trip but not my favorite

Went on this trip with my husband, 2 brothers and their spouses, all in our 60's. We enjoyed our time together and it's hard to complain about a cruise, but it wasn't our favorite. We all had balcony cabins and ...

Mixed bag

The itinerary suited me and the price was a little less than other cruise lines but I regret that decision. Just a few days before we were due to sail they changed the times in several ports of call. I have never ...

Great for Kids, Awful Guest Services

This was my second cruise on the Sunshine, so I knew about the wacky layout (you can't get anywhere on 3 - use deck five or 9 to position yourself fore/mid/aft, then take the appropriate elevator bank.) and didn't ...

This is my 4th Carnival Cruise, and I can definitely say this was the worst. The Ocean Suite I stayed in was showing wear and tear in the bathroom especially. They had the casino in the center of the ship where they ...
