Carnival Sunshine Cruise Review by Cruising Honeys
- Sail Date: January 2018
- Destination: Southern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Balcony
We are experienced cruisers in having taken 32 cruises, 30 of those with Carnival.
Cape Canaveral has it down to a fine science in the boarding of passengers. They are quick in getting your luggage unloaded from your vehicle and getting you through security to getting your check in.
The ship is well laid out with many places to enjoy with entertainment and food.
The casino is a bit small but has a variety of tables and slots.
The shops are the same as on all the ships, so there isn't much to be said.
The staff members are friendly bur could use more training in what benefits the cruise line offers.
There were many excursions to chose from and the ones we took where very enjoyable.
Debarkation could be better organized once you are off the ship. Porters are had to find when needed even though the luggage is there to pick up.

Brimstone Hill TourToured an old plantation that now makes rum. Very interesting an you are also given samples off the rum. Had some difficult at the stat with our diver and he didn't explain anything about the island. The tour guide at Brimstone asked about out trip out and when heard about it arranged for a different driver back to the ship that's very informative. Will also recommend the train tour around the island, we took it the last time and it was wonderful. It was also booked through the ship.View All 56 Brimstone Hill Tour Reviews
