We had never been to Charleston, SC, so the ship being diverted from Bermuda was okay with us. Walked over the the market on Market St. very busy, lots of stuff to see and buy, both in the market and in the shops on either side of the market. We did not take a ship excursion but did take a one hour Carriage Tour of the Historic district with Old South Carriage Co., the ones with the red sash. The Tour was very pleasant, the guide very knowledgeable, engaging and entertaining. At the time the tour cost $28.00 per person. Read Less

Did the circle Manhattan tour on a boat for two and a half hours . It was a good overview of New York and showed us where everything is. Rode bikes in Central Park and went up the Freedom tower.

Charleston used to be the easiest port, but the covered parking no longer exists and you have to park a lot farther away. I imagine they will work on this since the Sunshine just arrived, but the current method certainly isn’t as quick and easy as before. Getting off was pretty easy though. Read Less

Way to expensive and over priced. Would have possibly tried one but the way things were going figured it would be a waste of money

We walked to the aquarium, it's about a mile. We took the shortest route there, along the port, which was not scenic. On the return we meandered through old town which was prettier. The aquarium was a nice manageable size, we spent about 2 hours there with our 4 year old. There are a lot of activities for kids, not just looking at the sea life though that in itself was fun. Look for lego creations of the sea creatures too. They have a big sting ray pool, for a fee you can touch and feed them (we did not). There were divers in an enormous fish tank...there are sea turtles. There is a soft play area for babies and toddlers, and what I can only describe as a wall of machines for older kids that simulates aspects of how animals move; my son was fascinated with this. Very happy we did this on our own instead of buying an excursion. Read Less

Walked around ourselves with another couple. Visit the market area and look for the woman doing "hurricane art" (original paintings on slates and bricks). She's about 2/3 of the way in on the north side. Many small museums in town and quite scenic. Locals said Spring is best time of year to visit. Read Less

Loved this port it was like taking a step back in time. Very interesting history, lovely clean town. A breath of fresh air after the hectic pace of New York

: I had never cruised from Charleston and I was a little surprised how much of the embarkation takes place out in the open parking lot as you rattle and roll through bumpy pavement from tent to tent checking first passports/ID and then boarding pass, etc. It felt that there were just too many passengers to let board at one time, so they manufactured these little stops to take up some time along the way. We had purchased Carnival's "Faster to the Fun" option and once we got through the parking lot, we were very quickly through security and on the ship. Read Less
