Carnival Sunshine Cruise Review by Joseejo
- Sail Date: July 2018
- Destination: Southern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Ocean View
The food, as a whole was very good to excellent. Even food on the Lido deck was good, better than previous cruises on other Carnival ships.
Typically ate breakfast and dinner in the dining room and lunch on the Lido deck. Always good service, but not always fast.
The Chef’s Table was an absolutely wonderful experience. A 7-course meal not including 4 appetizers. The appetizers were served in the galley during dinner rush. A total mad house, how they consistently serve meals and keep orders straight is beyond me. It gives you great appreciation for the dining and kitchen staff! I highly recommend this event. The cost is well worth the experience.
My main complaint in the dining room is too many glasses on the table. I suggest putting wine glasses on the tables that want wine. I was always moving glasses out of the way or asking that they be removed, made things too crowded.
I did the North Coast Jeep Safari excursion in Aruba. Best excursion ever. Abraham was my driver, he was excellent. I highly recommend.
In Curaçao I did Double the Fun in Curaçao. A good and thorough tour on a comfortable air conditioned bus. Lorraine was the guide and she was excellent with her presentation and knowledge.
I did the Mega Truck Adventure in the Dominican Republic. I thought it would be similar to the Jeep adventure in Aruba, but it was not. It wasn’t bad, just not what I was expecting. Just a very bumpy, rough ride in an open air Mega truck. Not exactly sight seeing at least in the way it was in Aruba and Curaçao. The beach break was nice, the buffet lunch just ok.

A nice size cabin with a couch. Clean and comfortable. Steward’s name was I Ketut. He was excellent. Only problem with room was the shower curtain. No matter what I did or how hard I tried, still had a significant amount of water on the bathroom floor.
As far as cabin catagory goes and this review, my choices were Oceanview 6a, 6b, 6c, 6d. I chose 6b, but really don’t know if that is accurate, as I’m not sure what the a,b,c, d, or the 6 is referring to??

Very bumpy, rough ride. Stops were not so much sight seeing, but more souvenir shopping opportunities. I guess the main event was the beach break, it was nice, the buffet OK.
