Carnival - Sunshine NOT FOR US!

This was the worst cruise ever. The port in Charleston SC was terrible. We had to walk a mile back to our car when we got back or wait an hour for a bus. There is no where on this ship for peace and quiet. This is for drinkers and gamblers. The dining room is a joke. Its more like a cafe. The server didn't introduce himself. He just came up and said are you ready? One piece of bread, one ...

We were able to leave from Charleston which is close to where we live. The main dining room food was very poor even though my husband and I are not fussy eaters. The best piece of meat I had the whole cruise was a steak I paid an extra $25 for. "Specialty"restaurants were a joke. They were the same restaurants we ate in during the day. Then they put tablecloths on the tables, charged you ...

Horrible food, overcrowded, disgustingly Smokey casino

A friend invited us to join them. Big mistake. Food was tasteless unless going to specialty dining areas. Buffet sucked in plain English. Housekeeping was fantastic. All staff were outstanding and friendly. Just felt overcrowded. As a non smoker I could not spend more than 30 minutes in the casino. Smokers would rather sit in there and smoke (not playing) so that they did not have to go to the 3rd ...

I chose this cruise as experience with a group of friends. It was close for all of us and the itineray was a plus for the group. Embarkation was easy and as good as any i have done. It was quick and efficient from parking to getting on board the Sunshine After boarding we dropped our bags in our rooms and went to the Lido for lunch. First mistake of the cruise. Went to the Deli for the first ...

My birthday was the 19th and Charleston is a 6 hr drive from our home. We were 3 couples and we had Spa Cabins. The location was great because we just walked out the "back door "to everything...movies, bars and restaurants. We are all normally on Princess or Celebrity cruises and this Carnival was our 3rd Carnival and the 3rd cruise we took since the Covid lockdown was over. . Last ...

We decided on this cruise because it was a location we could drive to from Canada with interesting stops along the way. We weren’t concerned about where it went, we just wanted to relax. It appealed to us as it had many cruising days where you can just sail, nap and relax. This one was Aruba, Bonaire, Grand Turk and Princess Cays. We like to explore past what we cal the frosting and walk the ...

As Disappointing and Ultimately Unsafe

We wanted a pre holiday getaway to some warm islands. We got that, Aruba, Grand Turk, Bonaire and Princes Cay. All were great. Warm water, easy access, enjoyable snorkeling and day trips. What was bad, was the ship experience. First, the food. The main dining experience is entirely via the Carnival Hub app. If you're looking for printed menus and any semblance of fine dining and excellence, ...

BACKGROUND: This was a much-anticipated special anniversary cruise for me and my husband, married over forty years, now both in our late sixties. This was my seventeenth cruise (twelfth on Carnival) and the sixth for my husband (all Carnival). BEFORE THE CRUISE: We live five hours away, so we decided to come in a day early and stay overnight so we would have no stress on embarkation day. We ...

We choose this cruise because it was a 3-hour drive to the port for us. We arrived around 11:30 to the parking lot and there was no line and we pulled right up to the luggage tent, then followed directions to where to park and walked to Building 324 to check in. Somewhere in there we paid for the week to park but I can't remember if it was before luggage drop off or after. The lot lanes are A, ...
