The Carnival Sunshine is a beautiful Ship! Food was terrific, taco/burrito bar was outstanding, Guys terrific! buffets very good, dinning room great, pasta bar excellent, Pizza very nice and would say try as much as you can! Desserts were ok but not out of this world! However... my complaints are similar to others! pools too small and no stairs to get in or out! brought some of our own booze on so was not wanting to order a drink right away... good thing as bar service was poor for us, we did want to buy at least two slushy drinks every day but it was day 3 before someone actually came up and asked if they could get us anything, after that only that waiter came to us as all the others hid in behind of the tequila bar each & every day. We stayed in aft extended balcony 8332 do not stay in this room unless Live Cuban music does not bother you as it echo's thru the steel floor till wee hrs in the am!!!  

Great getaway!

Cabin Review

Aft-View Extended Balcony
Cabin 8M 8332
the room was nice! great shower but no fridge (we brought a cooler bag) What I asked when we booked with carnival was if the room was going to be loud and noisy and we were told a restaurants was above us and it would not be noisy at all but you may hear prop wash! we can handle prop wash I said so we booked it...HOWEVER THEY FORGOT TO MENTION THE RESTAURANT TURNS TO THE HAVANA BAR WITH LIVE MUSIC TILL THE WEEE HOURS EVERY MORNING, terrible sound echoing thru the glass and steel floor of the ship!SO WARNING! if your planning to get sleep between midnite and 3am forget about it! unfortunately I am one who needs his sleep so I was stressed every night until the band was done.
