We’re Sailing On The Carnival Sunshine For 8 Fun-Filled Days @CarnivalCruise


We are packing our bags and heading to the Caribbean with Carnival Cruises!! How exciting. The entire family has been counting down the days until July 11th because this adventure is going to be one for the books. Our 7 night cruise has 4 amazing ports including the Bahamas, St. Thomas, Puerto Rico, and Grand Turk. Yes. Please.

I have been actively researching the Carnival Sunshine and there is plenty to do for the kids while at sea.


Something I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT is the Hasbro Game Show. WHAT???? This is happening folks. This is happening!! If you know anything about me YET it’s that I am super competitive and if I get selected just KNOW that the other family is going DOWN. Woo hoo!


There’s also the Carnival Waterworks which is pretty much where we will be for the rest of the time I am sure. I mean… is this for real? Oh my goodness! I showed this picture to my kids and they actually were speechless. I have to nudge them a little to remind them to start breathing again. It was shocking to see that something like this could exist on a ship at sea. Even as an adult, I am surprised that this much fun can be had in the middle of the ocean. Holy moly!

And then there is the Sportssquare! Oh my goodness!!


But besides these three features there are dozens of other things to try out for adults and kids alike. Dive-in movies, pool and deck parties, miniature golf, the shake spot, amazing restaurants, nightclubs, slot machines, karaoke, hair and beauty salons and MORE. PS – I’m trying it all! Carnival thought of everything!

We started packing yesterday and everyone is levitating with excitement. The Carnival Sunshine is one of their newest boats and it can carry just over 3000 guests. But guess what? For those 3000 guests, there are over 1000 staff members employed! What a ratio!

The Carnival Sunshine looks like the best of both worlds — great ports and amazing activities on board. I am bringing all my cameras to document this adventure. So, stay tuned folks!!
