First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This was my first cruise--a gift from my daughter. I was so grateful! I went with my significant other and we were very excited about sharing our first cruise together. I even ran into one of my dear friends from college. That was a nice surprise! It was her first cruise, too. We left from Charleston. It was cold there when we arrived. We usually love Charleston though. Embarkation went smoothly, ...

Read some other reviews and although the ship layout and size has created some issues, overall we had a good vacation. This was our fifth cruise with Carnival but the first one out of Charleston and aboard the Sunshine. We didn’t splurge on any in port excursions but we did partake in the faster to the fun, cheers program, the steak house, internet, and deep tissue massages. Even though it is an ...

There were way too many people packed in for the amount of space. Elegant night was a joke. We sat pushed between a divider and another couple and it was so loud in there no one could hear each other. This was after a two hour wait. We sailed on this ship several years ago and really enjoyed it. The Captain's night was very relaxed and special, a lovely dining experience. On this cruise, ...

We chose this cruise due to it lining up with our kids spring break, our kids are 15 & 14. My wife and I quit drinking several years ago so your experience may differ from ours if you "partake in festivities". The onboarding process was much quicker and smoother than I expected given the amount of security you go thru. The room was neat, clean and had a large window compared to other ships that ...

I have cruised Carnival before and did not have issues but I have never booked excursions or room decor before so maybe this is standard. I ordered birthday decorations which they sold me but “ran out of” even though I ordered well in advance and had I known prior I could have brought decorations. Also booked an excursion, got the tickets then the night before got a cancellation notice. No real ...

This was not my 1st cruise with Carnival, but it may be my last. I know this ship isn't the newest, but I stayed on older and smaller ones in the past that put this to shame! The Food- It was terrible, from the scramble egg soup in the morning all the way to the tougher than leather "Prime Rib" at dinner. It was bad. The buffet was the same food they served at dinner. Just somehow worse. I ...

I am a Platinum cruiser with Carnival and have always enjoyed each and every cruise, there have been many. One of the many enjoyments is the Lido Buffet. This was my first SUNSHINE cruise, and I was disappointed. The ship is old. I always get a balcony room and noticed the rooms are smaller, and if you don't mind standing on the toilet to close the bathroom door than you'll have no problems. The ...

We cruised on the Carnival Sunshine 3-8 Feb 2024. As a welcome and taste of things to come, we were handeded rum punch in a water bottle that we could keep when we boarded.  Then we were told they were $26.  We handed them back. Our Stateroom Attendant, Komang,  was fantastic.  Very nice, and even remembered his assigned guests by name. I use a CPAP, but there wasn't an electric outlet by ...

I’ve traveled on other cruise lines and was surprisingly disappointed in Carnival. First of all, I have never been solicited to on a cruise as frequently and relentlessly as when I was on Carnival. It was almost unbearable, and a frustration I heard from many fellow passengers. But the worst critique is at the end. I had my toddler with me. The staff was all wonderful with her. But I had to ...

This was my first cruise and I was really looking forward to it. The excitement was hard to contain. But upon arrival at the terminal I was greeted with aggressive and unpleasant staff. As we were walking from the parking lot to the terminal, one carnival staff member threatened my gf with arrest for “jaywalking” when she walked beside me, placing part of her body outside the crosswalk. While ...
