  3. Carnival Sunshine
We throughly enjoyed our trip. We found the ocean view cabin (deck 5) clean and well furnished. There was plenty of storage and a fridge. The ports were nice, although better suited to watersport lovers. The ship is a bit quirky, many nooks and crannies. There are several can't get there from here situations. We enjoyed having the different casual dining options and locations, the taste bar was nice and it's conversion in the mornings for breakfast made room service unnecessary. Especially good (my other half says great) was Guys Burgers. It's a must for those who enjoy a juicy burger with all the toppings. One major disappointment was with the specialty dining restaurant Ji Ji. The service was unexceptional, and the food and portions below mediocre (not even to par with a local take out place). Served family style it could be a fun place but needs major tweeting. One of our appetizers was dumplings, three quarter sized dumplings were brought to share between the two of us. One main dish (beef) was so salty sent it back. This caused a flurry of staff to our table. We ordered the chicken as a replacement, also salty. I consumed two cups of tea, glass of water and two diet cokes during the meal. Only bright spot was after a complaint at guest services received a bottle of wine on the last night.

Nice Smaller Ship
