Highly recommend the Carnival Sunshine and Port of Charleston. My wife and I took our preteen daughters on a four-day cruise to Nassau. Stayed in suite 9107 which has a floor-to-ceiling window instead of balcony. On our second day at sea saw dolphins

This was our first cruise so we don’t anything to compare it to. I will say there were a lot of cruise snobs complaining. But my family had a blast!! This port is so simple to get in. We were on the ship within 15 minutes of arrival

Great family cruise

Under the weather circumstances this still turned out to be a great cruise. It was a rainy and cold trip but the staff still ran shows even on windy nights when the boat was rocking

Love the ???? Sunshine

We had a wonderful cruise. The waters are a little ruff going down the coastline but it's not going to ruin your cruise. This was our 4th time on the Sunshine and we will go again.

This was our best cruise so far. Loved the setup of the boat so much better than the others we have been on. The steakhouse was EXCELLENT! Ryan at the casino bar was great. Loved the fact that our room had a fridge. Buffet was subpar.

Not my choice of ships to cruise on but this was to allow my sons family to have their first cruise experience that was close to home.
