Fabulous Cruise

Sail Date: February 2014
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: New Orleans
The Carnival Sunshine was a most wonderful ship. The décor is amazing. The serenity deck is great but you do need to find a chair(s) early as they fill up fast and stay filled all day. Very relaxing. Guys Burger Joint - best burgers and fries. The entire ship is very nice, from décor to cruise staff.

Grand Cayman what a beautiful place. We did the Coral Reef and Sandbar - well worth the money. Holding the stingrays was wonderful. My husband enjoyed the snorkeling but I just enjoyed the ocean.

Montego Bay - would recommend taking an excursion. We did not. We found one bus that said $5 to any drop off location- once on the bus they offered to take you to several locations and stay with you all day for $20 pp. Well worth it. Went to the a private beach, market, shopping center, Jimi Buffets. Be careful when getting off the ship as there are many buses and taxis at the port and they charge way to much. You really need to talk to several to find one that is More not taking advantage of cruisers. Next time we will go on an excursion. If you do not take an excursion it is hard to really get the true Montego Bay experience.

Cozumel - beautiful port. Take a taxi to the town of Cozumel - fun shops, Senor Frogs (so much fun). It is about 3 long miles to walk there. We walked about 2 miles and then took a taxi well worth the $6. First enjoy the cruise port for Carnival it is very nice. Beautiful and clean, lots of shops.

The Sunshine is wonderful, very clean, great service. The only thing I would complain about is the smoke smell from the casino. Usually lingers in the stairwell near the casino and if you walk through it.

The food was great and the chocolate melting cake - well there is nothing that beats this.

This was our 4th Carnival Cruise and our planning our 5th Carnival Cruise in December.

Enjoyed every minute of our cruise!! Less

Stingray Swim

Coral Reef and Stingray - absolutely worth the money. Can't wait to go again.

Would suggest a shore excursion. We will take an excursion next time. Had a great time though.
