Carnival sunshine is a conquest class ship that has been changed We had a really nice time. The ship is really for the active as the sports deck is a main hub. The sky ropes course, miniature golf, football, basketball, ping pong, and other games is on the back of the ship along with the kids clubs. One deck below is the water park. The place for the adults is a 3 level serenity area for the adults in the forward. The middle is common ground The ship is in good shape, the food choices are good. The main show lounge is a little small and so is comedy lounge so let’s minutes have trouble getting a seat Our room steward and dining staff were great and friendly The deli person had a chip on his shoulder or needed interaction training The cruise director had lots of energy and was fun and created great energy First time I waited for food on a carnival ship as the wok and a few other areas there was obvious crew food sneaking and waited longer than normal and then it was obvious crew were doing a lot of full plate wrapped sneaking, maybe crew food is getting not so great and the crew area The shows had good themes, classic rock, 1970’s show, Motown, Sunshine did a great job getting rid of the disco and putting a red frog pub and ocean plaza in its place. Its more open to everyone now and more casual. The music has been moved out of Casino and into ocean plaza which is great for non smokers and allows a better flow of foot traffic The Casino is now smaller but once you have so many slot machines how does having more not being used helping anybody I do think this ship with so much emphasis on the active would not be fun if the weather kept all indoors due to rain, no sliding roofs on this ship 100 percent would recommend this ship

Pleasant cruise

Carnival sunshine is a conquest class ship that has been changed

We had a really nice time. The ship is really for the active as the sports deck is a main hub. The sky ropes course, miniature golf, football, basketball, ping pong, and other games is on the back of the ship along with the kids clubs. One deck below is the water park. The place for the adults is a 3 level serenity area for the adults in the forward. The middle is common ground

The ship is in good shape, the food choices are good. The main show lounge is a little small and so is comedy lounge so let’s minutes have trouble getting a seat

Our room steward and dining staff were great and friendly

The deli person had a chip on his shoulder or needed interaction training

The cruise director had lots of energy and was fun and created great energy

First time I waited for food on a carnival ship as the wok and a few other areas there was obvious crew food sneaking and waited longer than normal and then it was obvious crew were doing a lot of full plate wrapped sneaking, maybe crew food is getting not so great and the crew area

The shows had good themes, classic rock, 1970’s show, Motown,

Sunshine did a great job getting rid of the disco and putting a red frog pub and ocean plaza in its place. Its more open to everyone now and more casual. The music has been moved out of Casino and into ocean plaza which is great for non smokers and allows a better flow of foot traffic

The Casino is now smaller but once you have so many slot machines how does having more not being used helping anybody

I do think this ship with so much emphasis on the active would not be fun if the weather kept all indoors due to rain, no sliding roofs on this ship

100 percent would recommend this ship
