  3. Carnival Sunshine
We chose Carnival because of the kid's activities and we were not disappointed. We brought toddlers ages 2 and 4 years with us and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The activities, shows and special events were great. We all had fun at the Cat in the Hat special breakfast and Dr. Seuss parade. The staff was good and worked hard but they could have used a few more employees to handle the small kids. Overall, this was a great family cruise experience which is why we chose Carnival. The restaurant staff was superb as was our cabin attendant. Everyone always had a smile, even on the last day. I've been on lots of cruises on many lines but this one delivered some of the best service I've experienced at any price point. The cabin was so well laid out that we even had storage room to spare. The food was good, though not goumet but we did not expect that. We all enjoyed the shows. The only negative I have is the way they handled our transfer to the airport and kept us waiting 1 1/2 hour for a couple that never did show up.

Great for family cruising

Cabin Review

Spa Interior
Cabin 4S 10141
This cabin backed up to the pool area so it could be noisey on party and dance nights. Most of the nights, movies were shown there so we did not hear much at all. Be aware of this if you are noise sensitive. What we liked was the easy access to the spa and the Kid's Camp and to many dining choices. The upper bunk bed mattress was not terribly comfortable but kids probably won't complain. The room was very well sound proofed but nothing could shut out the loud vibrating base sounds from the DJ.
