Carnival Sunshine Cruise Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 (1035 Reviews)

  • One of a series of mini reviews on Carnival Sunshine New England / Canada Cruise 9/17-24/2016. EMBARKATION - We had FTTF. Well worth the extra $$. We arrived around 1, later than anticipated but that's another story. Our party of 6 was through the terminal and onboard in about 30 minutes after arriving. Both Guy's and the Blue Iguana as well as the lido buffet were open. We had our luggage in our room before we had to change for dinner. The muster drill took longer because guests took their time getting to their places, not because of any fault of the crew. TO BE CONTINUED. . .

  • Cruise #13 for me and second time on the Sunshine. I have never understood why this ship gets so mush trash talk. She is beautiful and one of our favorites. All the bells and whistles of the bigger ships but on a smaller ship. I could see how this could easily become overcrowded during peak seasons but that is why we sail in the fall and winter. Main dining room food never disappoints and the buffet is what you expect from a buffet. We sailed up into Canada for the first time and absolutely loved this Itinerary! We got away from the port area and fell in love with each stop. Segway tour in Boston, ferry to Peaks Island in Portland, hiked the Fundy Trail Parkway in Saint John, and sea kayaking up the coast in Halifax. Will definitely do this one again. So beautiful! Our only disappointment were the shows in the main theater. They were the exact shows we have seen on two other ships! And, the performers were painful to watch at times. We stuck with the comedy shows, dive in movies and a fabulous string ensemble for our evening entertainment. We had a cabin on deck 3 which was very convenient but a lot of noise every night from 10-11 pm from the atrium parties. Not a big deal but good to know for some people. Service from the staff was top notch, especially our server Corason in Your Time Dining. I was worried about the check In process for Your Time because of things I had read but it was always very quick and simple. Never had to wait for a table and we always got to sit alone as a party of two. And finally, if you have never sailed out of NYC, it is a must do! Sailing away and back into port is just breathtaking! The skyline, the Statue of Liberty and barely squeezing under the Verrazano Bridge. Thank you NYC and the Sunshine for a fabulous vacation away from our six kiddos for a week :). We will be back!

  • Main dining room had excellent food. Italian specialty restaurant a dissapointment Buffet needs improvement, many breakfast items not warm enough some cold. Little variety in comparison to some other cruise lines. Balcony cabin nice, clean. Ports visited were very nice.

  • this was a wonderful cruise, the ship was well appointed and staff was friendly and attentive. Β Seeing the seals in Halifax was a treat. It was calm sailing and relaxing. Good food choice for all meals. Lucklily I was not a first time cruiser, as port information was not done other than shore excursions and there was no information book in our stateroom which seemed very odd. Β We were at a lose for ports we have never been too. There was only some shirts in the stores on ship for Canada which was disappointing. Everything even the announcements from the cruise director were meant for the Caribbean Β

  • Enjoyed Lobster night & entertainment was over all good! Melissa overdid the 'AWESOMENESS' word for me, to the point where we joked how everything was AWESOME & than are seeing it all over since we got off the ship! Β  Was pleasantly surprised by the lack of children, than realized they were inΒ school ! The munster drill needs to be more strongly stressed that EVERYONE NEEDS to be ON TIME so we would Β not have had to stand so long. Β There were some people around Β me (75), younger thanΒ me, having trouble standing for the length of time due to late arrivers. Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  1

  • Cruise was excellent! Β Want to recognize a few of your staff that made the cruise even better. Β Fitzroy was our Cabin Steward (room 2266) and he was outstanding. Β Everytime we saw him he was working so hard to keep the cabins maintained, he was always there when we needed him and when we asked him about something once (i.e. ice in the bucket, extra towel) he never forgot it the rest of the cruise. Β We only had to mention it to him once. Β In the dining room we were very pleased with Monika (we were in the 321-323 table range). Β We had "any time" dining and when we got Monika we continued to ask for her each night. Β In the spa Shiela P. was wonderful - it was the best spa experience ever, she was outstanding. Β Overall the cruise exceeded our expectations.

  • This rating is mostly based on the service from all the staff and crew. Β They are friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating and just the BEST. Β Other aspects (dining choices, access to ports, ship design) not so much...
