Sail Date: Nov 2013
Traveled with children

This was out 3 cruise, we were very excited to be going on the inagual sailing from the states. For the most party the ship was pretty to look at however, it is very small. The rooms were smaller, the dinning areas were smaller, they comedy club was extremely smaller, it just felt so crowded all the time. If you werent at least an hour early for dinner or even the comedy shows, you could forget about getting a seat.

The food in dinning area was ok, buffet was NOT GOOD at all. JiJi's was EXCELLENT as was the Italian specialty resturant. Guy's was great as was the blue igwana. We found there was an aweful sweage smell on deck 3 and 4 towards the lounge. Now to the crewe, this was the first time that everyone was just unfriendly and rude. The only person on the cruise that actually spoke personally to us and our kids (19 & 18) was Jaimie the cruise director, as far as anyone else, it was horrible. Wait staff was so unfriendly, guest services was unfriendly, even in the shops they were unfriendly. They looked so miserable, never smiled nerver greeted, made us all feel like we were bothering them on our vacation!!!

We were VERY disappointed with The Sunshine, and would NOT go back on it again!!!
