Ship Amenities

The undisputed highlight of Carnival Sunshine’s outdoor areas is its swimming area. This comes with tiered decks for sunbathing, a gigantic movie screen, and the WaterWorks play area with its splash zones and multiple water slides. Little adventurers will love the outdoor play areas with its tightropes, planks and nets as well! The ship’s interior is as colourful and fun as its exterior, with plenty of playrooms, plush lounges and a busy Sunshine Casino. The central atrium features glass-walled elevators as well as a dual stairway, and it’s lined with eateries, bars and entertainment venues. Head to Piano Bar 88 for live music, Alchemy Bar for craft cocktails, and Library Bar for a quiet space to read. There’s also an art gallery, sports bar, and internet centre to keep you busy.

Cabin Amenities

Guests can pick and choose from multiple styles of cabins or suites, available with or without balconies and ocean views to suit each budget. A high percentage offer ocean views, with heavy use of glass to make the most of the scenery. There’s a wealth of new spa cabins offering direct access to the ship’s Cloud 9 Spa, as well as spacious suites with additional living spaces to take advantage of. Standard features in all rooms include toiletry kits, minifridges, flat screen televisions with infotainment systems, and spacious shows in the bathroom. A number of rooms are designed to suit families, featuring upper and lower bunk beds.

Dining Options

You’re sure to dine in style during your time spent on Carnival Sunshine, with two main restaurants offering a bright, cheerful design with ocean views and impressive menus. Waiters help contribute to the party vibe with dancing, singing, and merriment. When it comes to alternative dining options, you can head to Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse for a juicy cut of meat or platter of seafood, or Ocean Plaza for a range of self-service options ranging from pizza to tacos. Ji Ji’s Asian Kitchen dishes up delicious stir-fry dishes, or you can visit Cucina del Capitano for made-to-order pasta. BlueIguana Cantina is the place to go for tasty Mexican street food, and there’s also Guy’s Burger Joint for fast food dishes with a twist. If you’re in the mood for a truly special dining experience, reserve a spot at the exclusive Chef’s Table for a unique multi-course dinner courtesy of the chip’s head chef.

It’s the main place to go for high-energy productions with plenty of feathered costumes and live music! Additional options include a Hasbro Game Show that gets the whole family involved with quizzes and games, as well as the Punchliner Comedy Club and glamorous disco dance club.
