Carnival Sunshine sails from Charleston, South Carolina, offering short 4 and 5 night visits to Nassau in the Bahamas. The longer cruise also visits the company resort of Half Moon Cay. Occasionally there are longer cruises to three ports in the Leeward Islands. On board are a new 3-deck Serenity relaxation centre for adults, Carnival Waterworks, and SportsSquare which offer a wide range of activities for sea days. The ship attracts families with children.
