Carnival Sunshine

If you've ever caught a sunrise or sunset at sea, you know that they're the most beautiful kind. The sun has set on Carnival Destiny, a legendary, record-setting ship from the day she debuted. The end? Nope — Carnival has transformed this ship into something that shines even brighter. Meet the incredible light of a brand-new dawn, Carnival Sunshine. Everything the sunlight touches on Carnival Sunshine has been doused with an extra dose of fun, and there's plenty atop this ship, where you can spend your days being kissed by the warm rays of the sun. There's the biggest Serenity area ever, featuring three decks, plenty of recliners, and even a waterfall. Carnival WaterWorks, the onboard water park, packs both favourites and awesome new slides, like the slick Speedway Splash. There's also SportSquare, where you can let your inner champion run free (around the jogging track), traverse SkyCourse high up above, or even engage in a little one-on-one, from ping pong to foosball to giant chess. Step out of the sun and try out some shade (and it's some pretty cool shade, at that). The first thing you'll see is the Sunshine Atrium, let's just say first impressions count. From there, check out dining options like Guy's Burger Joint, BlueIguana Cantina, Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse and new choice Ji Ji Asian Kitchen. All the latest Carnival bars are here: RedFrog Pub, BlueIguana Tequila Bar, EA SPORTS Bar and Alchemy Bar as well as the already-classic Havana Bar! You'll enjoy musical revues up on stage from Playlist Productions, while Hasbro, The Game Show gets cruisers like you up on stage, competing in larger-than-life family favourites come to life.

Accommodation

On a Carnival cruise, your stateroom is your home base. When the day is done, once you've had your fill of fun, you'll head back to your stateroom and settle in for the night. No matter which kind of room you choose — whether you're thinking of a simple Interior or Ocean View, or going grand with a Balcony or Suite — you'll find yours a well-appointed way to wind down the day. And whether it's day or night, all staterooms have a room steward on duty, an attendant you can call for complimentary room service, and more sweet perks inside.
