  3. Carnival Sunshine
We did not like the new design on the Carnival Sunshine. With the remodel they added a lot more cabins and made everywhere else smaller. All the places to hang out were very crowded.We tried 3 times to go to the piano bar and each time we could not get in because it was already full with standing room only, and this was at least an hour before the entertainment started. Tried 3 times to go to a comedy show, again standing room only,and the lounge is very small. On the other side, The crew were very friendly, and the food was good. Our cabin steward was always on top of it, he ask if we preferred morning or evening service which was nice. We had an inside cabin on the lido deck for this sailing, and it was an average inside cabin like all the rest of the Carnival ships, nothing special. The cleanliness of the ship was good, The pizza joint was not up to par compared to past cruises, very slow service. The bartenders at the Alchemy bar weer by far the best of the bars on-board, very friendly and personable. Over all, we will not sail on the Carnival Sunshine again

Very crowded
