Very Relaxing

We have always cruised Carnival. We had a Cloud 9 Balcony Spa room. The few differences in the room were the colors and we had Elemis body wash along with the shampoo/conditioner in the room. I did try them both and had good results. I would book on this floor again the only downsides were our room location and every time the boat rocked so did you. I would pick a room away from the side door. The ...

We went on this cruise with casino offer and port is close to home. So price was very good travel to and from was easy. Was a bit concerned about the bus between to get on ship but it went very smoothly not much wait on embarking or disembark. We had an ocean view on first floor room was larger than many balcony we have had in the past. Or room steward was one of the worst we have had we saw him ...

Chose this cruise because it was departing from Charleston, SC and going to San Juan. The food selections and quality was amazing. The entertainment especially Zack Daniels in the piano bar was great fun every night but Thursday. Thursday is his drinking night and he was not performing. The shows in the Liquid Lounge where really good. The Acoustic Jams with the young couple Unity entertained ...

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 ...

I choose this cruise cause its the only one leaving from Charleston. Took my girlfriends parents who are 89 each. The ship does not have enough room. Serenity deck has to to something about chair saving. Never could find a chair when at sea. pool areas was about the same, had to sit high up on the decks. Food was OK at best. breakfast was good except the eggs looked like little BB"s.. never saw ...

I'm so nauseated at Lido food and MDR food is barely passable for a few days. So very grateful for Steakhouse and Ji Ji's (both excellent). Typical Carnival experience - fun but lacking decent food. Guys burgers were disgusting. Multiple people complaining about diarreah (sp) mid-cruise. Ship was typical Carnival - fun experience, dated décor, lousy food unless you pay extra. Value internet ...

We decided to go on the Sunshine because it was doing a Journeys cruise and who doesn't love extra days on vacation! The ship is very clean and well taken care of. I loved how new everything looked and the layout of the ship was so different compared to all the other ships I have been on. The water slides were lots of fun and it was amazing to look out over the ocean when you climbed up to the ...

Carnival is fantastic. Embarkation and disembarkation couldn't have been handled any better. Complete organization. This ship was totally clean, the food was great. My wife and I along with my step-daughter and her husband were totally satisfied with the whole cruise. The Carnival excursions were well presented a little pricey but you get what you pay for. The cabins were kept immaculate as well ...

Ship layout not set up for volume

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

The dining and main part of the deck was too small for the volume of people. Dining was almost always crowded, deck area was filled to capacity. The water park area took up a large part of the deck, however, there were not many kids on this cruise - leaving the rest of us fighting for comfortable space in the remaining 2 small pools and lounge chair areas. The activities and constant ...

Great on board and off board very organized. Room we stay in tighter than most of our past rooms we had stayed in. No refrigerator in the room being we brought 2 bottle of wine on board that would have been a us I have to say Pedro did give a bucket with ice to chill the wine. Karaoke Krystal did an awesome job but the songs are limited and all the ships should have the same songs through out the ...
