Christmas At Sea

Last year was our 1st Christmas without Mama. She was all about Christmas and had wanted to go on a 2019 Christmas Cruise. Sadly she passed in March 2019 and we were all depressed having Christmas without her at home. Not wanting to go through that again we decided this Christmas we were going to honor her and be at sea. It was her wish and it really helped us all. We chose Carnival Sunshine 5 ...

This was our 12th cruise and will probably be our last. Except for our room steward, workers were downright rude. Service was horrible. 90 minutes to get a Mongolian dish made. Had to stand in line for 90+ minutes to ferry to and from Half Moon Caye (no lines- just stalled the ferry with no explanation). They didn’t deliver my preordered speciality gift to my room for my annuversary. When ...

I have no complaints regarding this cruise. I loved everything about it. The only dislike comment I have is with anytime dining there was no way that I know of to have the same servers. I asked. I like having the same servers. I couldn't get an assigned table in early or late dining, hence, anytime dining. I don't know if because this was an 11 day cruise people as a whole seemed much happier and ...

Cheap cruise line

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

I've been on 5 cruises and this last one did me in. Over the years Ive watched Carnival get cheaper and cheaper. They've cut out all free drinks except for lemonade and unsweetened tea. No more juice. At the Captains dinner you use to get lobster tails, not anymore. The food is always over the top and not very good. The ship was previously the Carnival Triumph, but it was plagued with break downs. ...

Check in with the staff in Charleston was great, but getting TO THE COUNTER; not so much. 4 different directions was given to the Ubër driver before getting us to the right place, totally ignoring the signs saying CRUISE CHECK IN inside the parking area. You drop your bags off in a shed. Then drive across the parking lot. Get out, check in, and board a bus that drives you right back across the ...

WORST CRUISE EVER

We use this cruise line when we take my mother inlaw on a yearly get away. In the past have had no major problems or issues. This cruise however was the Worst experience I have ever had in 20 years of cruises. I will never go back, I'll stick with Princess or Royal Caribbean. The food on this cruise was awful, the buffet was tasteless, and they have no variety, same thing over and over, and ...

We choose this cruise mainly for the price and location. We were able to spend a couple of days in Charleston prior to boarding the ship. Granted embarkation was delayed due to a medical emergency but Carnival saved the lives of the people involved. Way to go Sunshine crew! The embarkation went smoothly despite that hiccup. Disembarking was also smooth and efficient. This was our second Carnival ...

Missed an entire day of cruising with no compensation and so much more

Watch out because Carnival decides on a case by case basis when they will compensate for stuff they feel is something they want to or not. We missed an entire day of sailing and disembarked at midnight because of their previous sailing. No compensation was offered for missed day except for the prorate of one day of drinking packages and internet packages. So ridiculous!! How about for people ...

Review for Carnival Sunshine to Bermuda

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

I choose Carnival Sunshine because we were able to depart from Charleston, SC. where I live! It was my first cruise and loved it! We cruised to Bermuda and Princess Cays from September 28-October 5th! Everyone was so nice and friendly! Our Steward LD (for short) kept us comfortable the whole time! Robert from Romania (Head Server) was awesome! One can tell he thoroughly enjoyed his job! He kept us ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Chose this cruise due to length (8 nights) and ports visited (St Thomas, St Maarten and San Juan) plus it left out of Charleston SC which was convenient for our family cruise. I would recommend the Sunshine. Staff was nice and entertainment staff was great. Loved the Ocean Plaza area. Trivia, great music (2 to 12). Enjoyed the Java Café each day. The Atrium parties were fun and the cruise ...
