Embarkation was excellent, on board within 30 minutes of arrival. The room was in excellent shape and to our surprise we had a refrigerator in the room, all of the comments suggested this was not the case on the sunshine so we brought a cooler to adapt. We found no problems with understaffing, Bar staff were prompt at returning to our table for refreshing our drinks and always smiling and fun. Had a ball with Cruise Director Donkey, the voice from above, and enjoyed the shows , piano bar, atrium bar entertainment, Red Frog pub, a few trivia contests, the previous cruisers party etc.... Dining room staff were enjoyable and attentive to our needs, found the food to be cruise perfect. We enjoyed all of our ports of call. Upon arrival back to Port Canaveral there was a problem in the terminal that delayed debarkation but Carnival staff (donkey) kept us informed and nobody was showing any signs of irritation, things happen, Got off the ship about an hour late but sailed right through customs with no other issues. Would definitely cruise the Sunshine again with no hesitation.

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin 8E 9218
We love the 1st balcony cabin on lido, always book it, always will. The cabin was well kept and bed was comfortable. The bathroom was a little smaller than other ships (oh well).
