I was very disappointed with Carnival Sunshine cruise. Embarkation & Debarkation were a nightmare and caused me to miss flight home due to customs taking too long to board ship to give ship OK to debark. During sea days people were saving deck chairs so at 7:30am there was absolutely no lounge chairs available! They would place towels, backpacks, other personal items on chairs then go have breakfast or whatever and not return until much later! Believe me everyone complained about this issue. Sadly people started to sit on the deck floors to enjoy the sun! The lido deck is way too small to accommodate passengers as it has only 1 small pool and 3 hot tubs. Dining room service was horrible! We never received our coffee and left after 20 anywhere not seeing our waiter anywhere! Never again on Carnival! Shore excursions not worth the price you could walk to the beach in Grand Turk right next to pier . I'll stick with other cruise lines in the future.

Not worth it!
