Sail Date: Aug 2019
Cabin: Balcony

I recommend Carnival Sunshine for the convenience and pleasant experience of sailing out of Charleston, South Carolina. The ship was comfortable and energetic.

We were fortunate to have Adam as our Cruise Director. I was aware of his outstanding reputation of being the premier cruise director for Carnival. He did not disappoint. In fact, a better cruise director would be hard to find throughout the entire industry.

The food is very good, but not great. The menu was unexciting, and nothing was compelling enough to pique our interest in having dinner in the dining room. The flavor of the food was plain and bland, even the desserts were flat in taste. This aspect is most likely a company item rather than a Carnival Sunshine item. The service in the Main Dining Room was s-l-o-w. Very s-l-o-w. There were many miscues by the over-tasked wait staff. The tables had no table cloths except on "elegant night" which was a joke in itself.

Cabin Review


Cabin 8B

The cabin was clean and had abundant storage. The head was adequate and well maintained. The shower was the full width of the head, not just a small corner shower. The airconditioning was very cool to cold during the day but in the evenings, the room would warm up as the night progressed and never felt cool enough.
