My husband and I enjoyed our Carnival Sunshine cruise to Bermuda... The Sunshine reminded me of an older mini Vista. Some rust here and there but otherwise clean and still in great shape featuring all of the 2.0 upgrades and cute wooden doors. Shows were entertaining and the food on the ship was great and consistent! We decided this cruise to eat in the MDR every night however did enjoy the lunch options at both JiJis and Cucina del Capitano. We purchased the Cruising the Vineyards package and found it an excellent value for five bottle of wines or champagnes to enjoy with our dinners, they would recork and store in the cellar for us when needed and then back the following night to the table. In the dining room they acknowledged we were celebrating my birthday and our belated anniversary by singing to us and bringing small cakes...nice touch! We had Emma Nixon as our cruise director and she was excellent, we loved her...she was fun and her and the entertainment team kept everything running smooth all week! There was always something to do, too much at times! Epic Rock and the Lipsync battle were our overall favourites fo the week. Our room steward was absolutely wonderful, as was our waitstaff team, they were all so friendly and we never had to ask or want for anything! We did the behind the fun tour and really enjoyed seeing and learning all about how the ship and crew functions and of course meeting and having photos taken with the captain. The embark and disembark process was slow and we had priority...only real downside to leaving from Manhattan port. The port: Bermuda was absolutely beautiful, so much to see. We did not do any Carnival excursions this cruise instead the first day we took the ferry to Hamilton and walked to the cathedral, parks, restaurants and shopped for awhile. The second day in port we hired a blue flag taxi driver who came highly recommended and saw almost the entire island in just over six hours. The third day we took the shuttle to Warwick Long bay and walked the path to Horseshoe bay beach stopping for photos and swimming along the way. Everyone on the island was so friendly, it was breathtakingly beautiful...we can’t wait to return again someday.

Loved Bermuda and the Sunshine!

Cabin Review

Ocean Suite
Cabin OS 7173
We had ocean suite 7173 on the starboard side, it was clean, very spacious with a larger size balcony... the room steward was wonderful, never had to ask for ice or anything. Loved the bathtub and the walk through area with lighted vanity. Only complaint was we were close to a housekeeping room so there was some extra cart noise during certain times of the day and night.
