To give you an overview on us, I (32) have worked in the Cruise Industry for 7 years and have been lucky enough to experience many ships; both professional and personally, my partner (25) worked on the Disney Dream for 6 months as a youth activities co-coordinator.
I think with many Mediterranean Cruise holidays you can sometimes come back home completely exhausted and the 9 nights on the Carnival Sunshine was no exception, 9 packed nights with only 1 sea day to relax. But it was worth it, the ports on this Itinerary are fantastic, each with each own character and each with something unique and different to see. We decided after much discussion that we would get off the ship each day, in some ports just for a few hours and some for the full day. Each one we enjoyed, but some definitely more than others.
The ship itself well it has many many plus points, but it also does have a few negatives but you will only notice some if you look closely enough! The new parts of the ship including the Fun Ship 2.0 enhancements are excellent, and have the look and feel of a brand new ship. Unfortunately what they seem to have done is left many of the old parts of the ship but become more noticeable the longer the sailing went on! Below is my opinion on various parts of the ship that we used the facilities!
