Carnival Sunrise

Carnival Sunrise - Carnival Cruise Line

Pros

Action-packed ship offers constant food and entertainment.

Cons

It's impossible to escape the crowds; pool deck food venues have long lines and bad flow.

Bottom Line

A great ship if you like activities and people, not so good for peace and quiet.

This was a great ship...the service...the staff...the food...not over crowded at all...yes breakfast buffet lines were long...but they were typical buffet lines...and we avoided them daily by going to the mini buffet stations and the omelette stations...omelette station at the seafood shack, never a wait...cruise director mikey was the best...sorry for you new guys...mikey was shipped off to the sunshine at the end of this cruise...big shout out to yulia and sonya and ivana at alchemy, best martini makers on the seas...playlist dancers were good...previous reviews had me nervous, but kept an open mind and had a great cruise...we did our own shore excursions except in halifax, where we did the hop on and hop off on the big pink bus...didn't see any problems occur on the ship...no fights...no drunks...and 8 days of beautiful seas...a little chilly in the outdoors bur this was a new england/ canada cruise...thank you carnival...

This was our first Carnival cruise. My wife and I are in our late 50’s early 60s. We’ve sailed with Royal Caribbean, Princess, NCL, and for our honeymoon, Home Line. We hesitated sailing with Carnival due to its rep as a beer and pizza cruise line. After reading numerous reviews on how they’ve upped their game, we gave it a shot and were not disappointed. We sailed on the Sunrise, to Canada and New England. First, this cruise attracts an older audience. 90% of the passengers were older than us, and that was quite OK. The ship is a rehab, with Carnival adding additional passenger rooms to the detriment of common areas. They were very overcrowded, including the buffet, which was no loss, as cruise buffets in general arent stellar. It was difficult to get seating at the piano bar and the comedy club. We went to the comedy club once, 45 minutes early, and were able to get a seat. The ship was not nearly full, which gives me concern about how it would fare when full. We had an inside cabin, as we love the dark for sleeping. It was amply sized, and we didnt feel at all cramped. The food was really good. The Guy Fieri restaurants (note, theyre not really restaurant, just take out) were stellar. Some of the best BBQ anywhere and great burgers. Terrific! Make this your first meal when you wait for your room. Lucky Bowl was also exceptional. A cross between pho and ramen for lunch; delicious noodle soup. For breakfast, they serve breakfast bowls. Skip the buffet for lunch and dinner, youre best off at the taco bar (also good for breakfast), the sit down formal main restaurant or the Fieri stops. You can always grab something from the buffet if the other meals dont fill you up. The only meal that was disappointing was the for-pay Cucina del Capitan. The service was poor, and the food mediocre. If you want to splurge, order the lobster for a $10 dollar premium in the main dining room. Or the seafood tower. I’m sorry we didnt. We saw one the last night, and it was huge. At $60 for two people, it’s a bargain. Also, on the first formal night, they serve lobster for no surcharge. So, dont book the specialty restaurant for formal night. If you want more than one of anything, ask. If youre too timid to ask, ask them how big the lobster tail is and they will heap them on you. Passive aggressive ordering. Youre welcome. The activities were fun, and the shows were really good for what they were. The only total ripoff is bingo. On the first night, 8 people split the $200 jackpot. On the last night, they advertised a $5000 jackpot. This was a fill-the-card game. What they didnt tell you was that if there wasnt a winner after a certain amount of draws, they wouldnt award the $5000 jackpot. This wasnt advertised, and the winner walked away with a $1000 prize. A lot of angry people. All in all, it was a great cruise with really good service and food. Good value. Read Less

We took this as our first cruise. It was my birthday that week. We didn't make it to Bermuda, however we had a great time.The dining staff(Eddy. Riafin and one other ) were fantastic. All the staff including room staff was fantastic! We will definitely cruise with Carnival Sunrise again! For being on the ship 5 out of 6 days we were always enertained. The shows were incredible! The talent on that ship from shows to 3rd floor music was great. The pictuted we had done on formal nights came out beautiful, and there was no high potch sales involved! We look forward to sailing with Carnival Sunrise again, not to mention they gave us 100% refund dur to not making it to Bermida. We did stop in Charleston which was beautiful and enjoyed that port.All in all it was a grrat experience for a first time cruise! Can't wait to book again! Read Less
