Pro's: This itinerary was amazing with 10 ports in the first 12 days. The staff was some of the best I have had in 37 Carnival cruises. The decor is bright and much more appealing them most other ships. The new Lido deck layout with the buffet (easier to get around). Adding to that the new Havana bar with it's open seating at the back of the ship is great. Con's: Carnival has stayed true to ...

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 ...

The rooms are very nice. Staff nice. Ship is nice, except for the lack of a large pool. We did discover Tip1-use guest services desk on advice on how to do your excursion at the easy ports. Tip2-do use the sail and sign kiosk or guest services to keep up with your spending everyday, or watch for mistaken charges, and can contest some charges. Tip3-watch out for sales people everywhere, including ...

This was our first time cruising with Carnival but it certainly will not be our last.Like others we had done our research on the cruiseline itself and also on the ship itself,and like others we had read both positive and negative reviews so like always we got ready for our cruise with an open mind and now I can positively write an utterly positive review due to myself and my husband having had a ...

My Husband and I are in our early 40's and this was my 17th cruise. We were originally booked on the April 26th cruise that was cancelled due to the ship not being ready. We are so happy we re-booked for August. What a perfect cruise. Also found out once onboard that we had $150 room credit for taxes, so a nice surprise for us! We spent 1 day prior in Barcelona and stayed at the Hotel Espana ...

To give you an overview on us, I (32) have worked in the Cruise Industry for 7 years and have been lucky enough to experience many ships; both professional and personally, my partner (25) worked on the Disney Dream for 6 months as a youth activities co-coordinator. I think with many Mediterranean Cruise holidays you can sometimes come back home completely exhausted and the 9 nights on the ...

Just returned from our Cruise tonight and felt the need to warn people about some annoying imperfections that blighted our cruise. Having previously sailed with Princess and Royal Caribbean the standards set were quite high, however we had been warned that sailing with Carnival would be a different experience, so our expectations were lowered beforehand. We chose this cruise for the following 3 ...

Pros: We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and we were excited about the renovation of the Sunshine. The stops are amazing and since Carnival is not doing a Europe season next year this was the last chance we had to for the next few years unless we chose another line. We had a blast off the ship. Europe is incredibly easy to get around. You can get a train to anywhere you want to go and ...

This was me and my husbands first cruise, so we had no big expectations. Embarking on the ship was fast and our cabin was ready. We had a balcony room which I was very glad for. It was most enjoyable to sit outside and watch the sites. The room was spacious enough, and the bathroom was also. Very simply decorated, but nice. Our cabin steward was very friendly, and accommodating. Dining ...
