Cabin Review


Cabin 8A

Room 6363, 8A Balcony: Room ready and our stuff was moved for us by our new room steward Aris. We packed our bags in our old room, leaving the hanging clothes in the closet Aris made the move happen while we were down stairs doing the TSA stuff. This room is a “L” shaped room with a long balcony two chairs and one recliner. Did have one-night stand beside the bed and a refrigerator. I believe that Carnival Sunshine has the biggest showers of any ships in the fleet. This is the best 3A Stateroom ever had. Rate steward services 4.5 of 5

Port Reviews

Port Canaveral (Orlando)

My favorite but this was a B2B and we didn't get off.


NASSAU: Nassau is the first place I ever had Conch Salad and is has become a must every time we return. We debarked and walked down Bay street to the Tiki Bikini Hut, the beach was rather crowded so we set at the bar and enjoyed the open air environment while savoring some adult beverages. After that we continued our stroll down the beach toward Gone Fishing Beach Bar & Grill. Time for the Conch Salad and other delicacies, this is where the locals go. Now there are about 10 little food places and I can’t remember the names, blame it on the adult beverages. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and service, the waiter was kind enough to get us a cab for our return trip to the port. Recommend this little outing to anyone porting in Nassau. Rate this port 4.5 of 5

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata)

Amber Cove: This was second time to port in Amber Cove on the B2B. The Family decided to repeat our last week’s pool day. I enjoyed my book, the sun and the pool a little shopping. If you enjoy relaxing around the pool this is your kind of place. Rate 4.5 of 5
