Here is a screenshot of the listed open time for Guy's Burger Bar that they suddenly removed after I went back and forth with Guest Services and back and forth to Guy's Burger Bar when they stated on the app and Guest Services that they were open, but then was told by a crew member after waiting 10 minutes for him to address me that they were not open at that time.
The beautiful Sunrise atrium
We enjoyed the shows

Carnival Fell Short Of Even Our Very Low Expectations
"It's a shame so many people try Carnival for their first cruise and then decide cruising is not for them.I feel sad for all of the people who sail Carnival for their first cruise, who think this is what cruising is about...."Read More

Carnival Fell Short Of Even Our Very Low Expectations

This was our 26th cruise and first on Carnival. We had never sailed Carnival before because of its reputation of being a low-end cruise line where everyone just wants to get drunk and party. We found the reputation to be true, unfortunately. The worst part were the cattle calls for meals at the buffet. Lines were regularly 20+ minutes everywhere. Usually, I walk around the buffet and have a ...

The Good, the Bad and the absolutely Nightmarish Cruise

We really looked forward to this cruise. I wish I had never gone. I love snorkeling in Grand Turk and this time was no exception. It was the best part of the cruise. Wonderful water, easy to get to the beach from the ship, really just excellent! But..the bad far outweighted the good. The food quality has really gone downhill. "Someone left the cake out in the rain" was the dessert theme. With ...

WORST Cruise Experience EVER!

This was my husband's first ever cruise and it was my 5th cruise. This was the worst cruise experience I have ever had and an absolutely terrible experience for my first time cruiser husband. Some of the items on this extensive list may be nitpicky to some, but as one thing after another went wrong or were well below expectations due to previous cruises with Carnival and other cruise lines, we ...

BE WARNED - YOU WILL SPEND YOUR WHOLE CRUISE IN LINE FOR FOOD

I normally would never take the time to go and complain about a cruise but I WISH someone would have warned me about the food situation on this boat. THERE ARE ONLY 2 BUFFET LINES FOR THE ENTIRE BOAT. Granted there are other venues but even these lines are just ABSURD. Twice we just settled on the pay for meals restaurants so we could ACTUALLY EAT. PS The Bonsai Sushi is REALLY GOOD AND WORTH ...

Over the past 15 or more years, I have gone on over 40 cruises. I can say unequivocally that this was the worst, by far. I don’t want to blame the staff, because except for a few exceptions, they were doing their best. The problem is that Carnival is using the excuse that their potential employees cannot get visas. This may be true. But the issue is not whether or not they have enough staff; the ...

Me and good friend chose this cruise because we had already booked a longer cruise in September and after booking, we just couldn't wait that long!!! We chose the iteniary because we wanted to go to the private island. That was the highlight of the trip. The water was beautiful. Nassau was just ok as we have been there several times before. Senor Frogs was fun to visit as it is always a good ...

First of all I have MS, and before we were even on board, we were treated with such disrespect I was sent into a full blown flare up. It made the cruise miserable the first 3 days. My husband and I were pulled out of first line with our boarding passes, rudely, because they said the print wasn't big enough.....it was printed directly off of their website. Thank goodness I made multiple ...

We decided to take a cruise with Carnival Sunrise to celebrate my children's birthday. We booked a Captain Suite expecting to have one of the best cabins in the ship and ended up having the worst space in the ship. The electric blinds were broken, the curtains had holes and missing hooks. The bathroom doors were not working and the bed strings were breaking our backs. The staff admitted that these ...

Just finished disembarking from our cruise First I would like to say that while previously cruising on the Glory we had nothing but good things to say and wanted to go again and let our children have the experience we had. With that being said this cruise was anything but enjoyable, from the extremely rude staff, to being mislead by our booking agent on packages, waiting 25 minutes for a server ...
