Life aboard Carnival Sunshine
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.

In 1996 she was the first ship to exceed 100,000 GT (at 101,353 GT). Given her 2018 refurbishment, Carnival Sunshine now carries 3,006 passengers, and sports a Carnival Seaside Theatre and new "Circle C" facility for the 12-14s. Features include three pools, a variety of dining options, lounges, nightclubs, giant casino, and spa and fitness centre. Entertainment includes Las Vegas-style floor shows, state-of-the-art theatre, sing-along piano bar, dance club, and jazz and cabaret room. Families and children are very well catered for. Dress casually, bring a dark suit for formal dinners, and mix with passengers around the 21 to 45 age group – singles, couples and families.

Accommodation
The 36 cabin categories include interior, ocean-view, balcony, and suite staterooms. Interior cabins come in a variety of configurations, some with an extra bunk. Over half of all cabins have outside views and all are larger than the industry standard. Most rooms have twin beds that can be converted to a king bed upon request. All staterooms include flat-screen TVs, safe, hair dryer, bathrobes in the higher category cabins, and Carnival Comfort Bed with plush mattresses, good quality duvets, linens and pillows. TV channels include CN, Fox News, a music video station, a Carnival station, and port excursion overviews.

Cloud 9 Spa staterooms (interior, balcony and suite) have special access to the spa facilities. Suite grades include Grand, Ocean and Spa 9 – all with whirlpool, extra dressing area, and priority check-in. All are quite lavish. Balcony staterooms also offer quite a variety of sea views and veranda sizes. There are no single cabins, and 25 wheelchair-accessible cabins. There are self-service laundry rooms (pay) with washing machines, dryers, irons and ironing board.

Food and Dining
Dine in the two principal dining rooms – the Galaxy and the Universe – with a choice of fixed-time dining at two seatings, or flexible “Your Time Dining”. Dining assignments can be booked before the cruise. Menus change daily and service is excellent. Breakfast and lunch are open seating. The casual Lido Restaurant buffet is the expansive two-level poolside eatery, offering casual alternatives for breakfast and lunch. Children have their own menu, plus pizzas and ice cream all day.

Carnival Sunshine offers five cover charge dining options: Green Eggs and Ham for breakfast, Ji Ji Asian Kitchen, Nouveau Restaurant for dinner, Bonsai Sushi for lunch and dinner, and the rather special Chef’s Table for 12 that includes a galley tour. Mongolian Wok is complimentary. Of course there’s plenty of fast food – hot dogs, burgers and such. There’s a patisserie, and self-serve ice-cream and yoghurt (at no extra charge). At the Café get a slice of cake or a gourmet coffee at an additional cost. The ship offers 24-hour room service (pay extra), ranging from basic continental-style breakfast fare to a variety of sandwiches and desserts.

Entertainment
There is something for all ages. The Main Show Lounge spanning three decks presents large production shows and cabaret acts backed by a live show band. It has a revolving stage, hydraulic orchestra pit, and excellent sound. Seaside Theatre’s giant screen over the main pool shows sports events, music videos and films. This ship has some of the best nightlife at sea: late buffet snacks, R-rated comedy, the Point After Dance Club, and Millionaire’s Club Casino. There are 10 themed bars. Daytime activities include the customary art auctions, karaoke, "game show mania," ballroom dancing, comedians, bingo, and library.

The new 3-deck Serenity relaxation centre is for adults, and the Carnival Waterworks is for all ages. SportsSquare offers climbing, court games, and a host of other activities for sea days. The pool area has pools and a three-decks-high Green Thunder Waterslide. Cloud-9 Spa offers aerobics, sauna and steam rooms, solarium, treatment rooms, lecture rooms, beauty parlour and large gymnasium. On the sun deck there’s a mini-golf course, jogging track, and deck games. Teens enjoy their own parties and movies at Club O2, junior teens at Circle “C”, and pre-teens at Camp Carnival.
