Carnival Sunshine Cruise Review by Canadian Explorers
- Sail Date: February 2016
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
The ship is a good size with more entertainment for families than we have seen on any of our previous cruises. We heard of a few complaints of noisy children, but we did not notice any issues on the lower decks. Having families on board seems to add life to a ship.
Food was good and staff were friendly. Overall ship was clean and rooms were comfortable. We enjoyed the nightly entertainment.
Four port calls was a good mix for an eight night cruise. The last stop was Grand Turk which was mainly a beach day. Nice facilities right at the dock. Swimming beach, large pool, a few modern shops, etc. The dock area is tight so it took over an hour to get along side, safety first, but we made it. We would certainly recommend this ship for families.

Grand TurkThis is more of a beach break before the end of the cruise than anything else. The dock area is a tight fit so it can take some time for the ship to get alongside. Well worth it once you get ashore. A private well maintained beach, a nice pool area, a few modern shops, etc. and all at the end of the pier.View All 2,148 Grand Turk Cruise Port Reviews

San JuanTour of two old forts. Bus was modern, driver and guide were informative and considerate. Lovely city, although we could have walked from the ship. Forts were well preserved and a pleasure to explore.View All 3,881 San Juan Cruise Port Reviews

St. Kitts (Port Zante)First time to St. Kitts so we booked a bus tour with a stop at the old fort. Tour was good and the driver was informative and considerate. I prefer a bus tour as you often see the the real culture not just what is polished up for the tourists. Lovely island and people were friendly. Interesting comparison as one side of the island is somewhat untouched but the other side is being developed for tourism with full amenities.View All 1,740 St. Kitts (Port Zante) Cruise Port Reviews

St. MaartenWe have been to this island before so we just walked to town for a look around. Town is modern and easy walking distance from the ship. Looked at some shops, walked on the beach, and headed back to the ship once the midday heat set in. This is the the type of island that you could visit more than once.View All 4,807 St. Maarten Cruise Port Reviews
