A Good Cruise
"High winds & rough seas are no fault of the cruise line, so we took our Dramamine and enjoyed ourselves.We enjoy all our cruises, but we probably wont be booking another cruise on the Sunrise...."Read More

I admit I am not an avid cruiser, but I have been on several cruises before. However, this is my first Carnival cruise. In the past, I have cruised Disney and Royal Caribbean. I chose this Carnival for this trip because it fit the time frame we had to take our grandchildren on a cruise. I didn't expect Carnival to compare with Disney or RC. HOWEVER, we had a GREAT experience on the Carnival ...

Itinerary is by far No. 1 for me in terms of importance. After that, food and entertainment are what I value most on a cruise. I can be coaxed to take a cruise if the taxes are fees are more than the fare, as it was with Sunrise. Pros: Carnival's private island, Half Moon Cay, is top notch in terms of calmness and clarity of water. I can't swim and I felt safe going in up to my shoulders. It ...

1st let me start by saying we were scammed by having a $300 bill end up on our account for our 2 kids, we were told to have them tested 72hrs within departure time which we did and then arrived to port to where we were told kids need to be tested again and it was free and of no charge because we had our test results within the 72hrs from our doctor, they lied and then put it in small writing with ...

Let's start with the Pros: The beds are comfortable, the staff is friendly, and they keep it super clean. The Italian Restaurant was worth the extra 15 bucks.Guys Burger and Blue Iguana are pretty good. The casino isn't terrible, though a tad on the smaller side. Now for the garbage: The buffet food is horrible, and they only have two lines to accommodate everyone. The on-board entertainment is ...

check in even with covid and proof of being negative was a breeze. The port in Nassau is under major construction and i just walked around Nassau for a while and went back and ate and relaxed on the ship. Half moon caye which is Carnival's private island was not as nice as previous visits. the size of the beach is smaller probably do to it being hit by a couple of hurricanes. The beach area was ...

My wife and I have cruised with Carnival before and we were offered a deal that we couldn’t refuse. We decided to take our family (eight of us) on a multigenerational cruise. The 4 day, Bahamas length was a perfect introduction to cruising for our two daughter-in-laws and two grandchildren (under 10). Everyone had a great time. Carnival does a tremendous job of offering activities for every ...

Our first cruise, but certainly not our last

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Some of our immediate family had previously been on a few cruises, and invited my wife and I to join them this time around. We were very reluctant, never having left the country before OR taken a cruise, but agreed to go and celebrate our 25th anniversary at sea. But we didn't see ourselves as "cruise people", whatever that is, and weren't sure we'd enjoy the trip. We were wrong. Our cruise ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

I chose this cruise due to price and destinations. The only disappointment was we were supposed to go to Grand Cayman and instead got Nassau (darn covid). But the shop was great. Room was a good size, had a balcony on deck 7. It wasn't crowded so we never had to fight for a chair. The food was really good and the service was amazing! The movies were new'ish and good. They had tons of ...

Just back from our 4 nights on the Sunrise. All in all a very good trip, It is a different crowd than what we are used to but everyone was having fun and very congenial. I would go again. Oddities included, there was a dead bird on our balcony when we got there, my husband called it in, about 20 minutes later 2 ladies came and took pictures and verified it was dead, (like we would make that ...

We originally chose this cruise because of that ports but they got changed (it’s happened before) and the price was very good. Embarkation and debarkation were the fastest we have ever had. We had all our paperwork in hand-they reviewed it and we were on our way. The food was good and there was very little waiting even at Guy’s Burgers. The staff was great, the ship was about 60% capacity. ...
