It is hard to write about all the great things that were on this cruise, there are so many!! From the start it was great, fast onboard checkin, easy to use the Carnival Hub to find out what is going on. Fantastic food, loved lobster night. The waiters and waitresses were great, felt like a princess. The ship was big enough to do anything you wanted to do. The entertainment was very good, would ...

Journeys cruise and the length. We wanted to get away. Although we live in San Diego and the warmer climate, just getting away from the day to day normal was what we were looking for. We Love Carnival and are avid cruisers. (Platinum Level) we have been on other cruise line many times before but we always come back and prefer Carnival. They never disappoint The entertainment staff on this ship was ...

The cruise did not start well there was a problem with one of the motors so we did not leave till 3 hours after when we were expected to. This was just the start of problems to come i purchased the drink package which was nice they had a good selection of liquor. But you get cut off after 15 drinks for the day and are not even able to purchase any more you would think this would happen every often ...

I chose this cruise, after 26 years of working on NYE, I wanted to spend with spouse without working. The inside spa room was roomy for 2. THis room was so close to the outside deck and food. This ship is big and sometimes I did feel overwhelmed, just moved inside or went to serenity decks, which is 3 decks high. I will go on a NYE cruise again! The Steakhouse was the best thing we did and went ...

I've sailed with Carnival once before 6 years ago on the Dream. And it was a dream, a very good one. I almost cried when I had to leave. Everything was wonderful!. Unfortunately, my experience on the Sunshine was the opposite. The only redeeming thing was the cruise director. He did his best. The food was less than average and every meal, regardless of where served, was cold.They spent to much ...

For us we learned on this cruise that perhaps 8 days is a bit too long. The pros of this cruise and ship first. Pros: Well planned layout that allows for Forward and Aft movement without the need to go up or down a flight on a particular deck - nice departure from other ships, hand washing / sanitizing stations outside of all food areas in addition to the hand sanitizers was awesome (now if ...

Cruise was great. Ship is beautiful, but definitely needs some updates and maintenance. Shows were decent and some of the cast has some great potential! Lee was our cruise director and was tons of fun. The crew at the Casino bar is the absolute BEST! This ship has my favorite Serenity area! Would like to see more variety on the buffet. Pet peeve with assigned dining, had to wait for ...

Good value, great ports to visit. The entertainment was non-existent, low budget! One good show "Epic Rock" great graphics, but the sound was unbearable. The other was 'Latin Nights" this show was OK, not bad one good show in 8 nights. Other activities in the pool area were very crowded, lounge chairs were never picked up so people had to dance on the edge, so it was difficult to walk across ...
