Sail Date: Feb 2016
Cabin: Interior

My February 2016 cruise on the Carnival Sunshine was my sixth cruise and third time sailing with Carnival. Overall this cruise had a great itinerary and didn't have many major disappointments or pleasant surprises. If you know what to expect from a Carnival ship then I wouldn't hesitate to book a cruise on the Sunshine. It was nice that the ship wasn't gilded with traditional Carnival mirrors, neon, and obnoxious colors. I enjoyed the decor.


We arrived around 11:30 and the process wasn't any slower or unpleasant compared to past cruises. Too bad with our hotel stay the night before we didn't each pickup up wine or soda to carry on per their stated policy.
