Carnival Sunshine Cruise Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 (985 Reviews)

  • My favorite part of the cruise was the fun things on deck. I enjoyed lounging on deck sometimes in the sun and other times in the shade. I enjoyed my first massage everb it was awesome. The food was very good. Carnival honored my request for a refrigerator in my cabin as I had medication that had to be refrigerated.

  • Our overall experience was most favorable.  The staff, room, activities, etc., were fun.  Of course, the pools wee too small for the number of passengers but that is true of most  ships.  The variety and quality of the food was very good but often  it was served cool and not hot.  The entertainment was top notch with the exception of the Hasbro Game show - fun for kids but not so for adults.  As I said we all fully enjoyed the cruise and cant wait for the next one.

  • This was my 15 cruise and 14tlh cruise with Carnival.  Overall the crew and the ship were great.    The entertainment was constant, and Emma our cruise director was one of the best that I've seen.  The food in the dining room and in the specialty restaurant's was top notch.  Lido deck and buffet were excellent as well.  If I had to be critical the one point that needs improvement was the wait time in the main dining room.  I had the option time that allowed us to eat whenever we wanted and seemed that they could use more staff in the dining room to help reduce the wait time.  Other than that nice job with everything else.  The kids had a great time as well and loved both the water park and Camp Carnival.

  • Our most favorite part of the cruise was our conversations with crew members. The ship needs an overall.  The cabins were small, the bathrooms were not easy to navigate.  More public rest rooms are needed, garbage cans were scarce. The lido deck was over crowded, not enough room for eating in the buffet /lido deck. Serpendity deck had too many under age people. Food was not the best, neither was the entertainment. i would not recommend the Carnival Sunshine to anyone.

  • So much to do with the kids! Carnival Camp is amazing when the adults want to have some alone time worry free! The food is great, I never felt crowded or rushed during meals or events. Even going thru customs, embankment and disbarment was very well organized. My next trip I will upgrade my room (I had the balcony suite on cloud 9) which was wonderful but once the second queen size bed comes out leaves little room for all 4 of us to move about without bumping into each other. Overall great trip, my travel agent was amazing, and I would recommend to anyone of all ages. P.S. The kids waterpark was equally fun for us adults too :-)

  •  I just have to say that this was by far the best vacation that I have ever had.  Everyone was super nice and respectful.  The food was excellent too. I am already looking forward to my next one and I am in fact looking now.  Thank you Carnival for making my very first cruise so enjoyable.

  • We loved the Sunshine!!! Emma the cruise director was phenomenal. She and her team had so much energy. They had you entertained every night from deck parties and line dances to dance parties in the atrium. The only negative comment I have is that the rooms are small for the comedy and dance shows. If u get there early you should get a good seat. The juggler, magician, comedians and dancers and singers were great. Make sure you go to the on board and excursion experience . U fill out raffle tickets to win excursions and on board give aways. I have been on 5 cruises. This one is my favorite. I loved the layout of the ship on Lido deck. U can hear the DJ from almost everywhere on ship, even serenity. You will not be disappointed. Sunshine and Emma get an A++++

  • We had a wonderful time! Ship was clean, our room steward Dadan was great! Food was delicious, Cucina Del Capitan was my favorite, Jasmina was so cute and friendly there.steakhouse was very good too, sushi was good, we had your time dining. It was very loud, crowded and busy!But if you got a window seat it was not that bad. Lido marketplace was pretty good but my husband got bad chocolate milk 3 times. JiJi's in the Havana bar made a great omelet for me. Wait staff worked very hard and were very friendly all over the ship! Islands were beautiful! Emma fantastic!

  • The visit to the lovely islands were dreamy and exciting. All three Islands were extremely hospitable, especially Puerta Plata in Santo Domingo with BABA Alex and the Crew who were very welcoming, professional and always had a friendly smile. While on the carnival sunshine the staff on each floor were peasant and the food in the restaurant was enjoyable and different. The view from my balcony was breath taking.
