The once-named Carnival Destiny became the brand new Carnival Sunshine as of 2013. Why the big change? Over $155 million was spent on refurbishing the vessel and making it one of the most luxurious cruise ships on the water.

The Carnival Sunshine can carry 2,642 passengers and weighs a whopping 101,353 tons. It was one of the first mega-ships in the modern era. It has some impressive amenities including the nine-deck atrium, 9,000 square foot casino, and a showroom spanning three decks.

Carnival Sunshine Fabulous Amenities

The Promenade Deck is a hotbed of activity and features over 18 bars and entertainment venues. Some of the standouts include a wine bar, sports bar, and piano bar. There is also an elegant cigar lounge for a cocktail and high-quality smoke. If dancing is more your speed, pay a visit to the off-the-hook disco for a night of good music.

No matter where you eat, you will enjoy ocean views all around. The two-story indoor-outdoor buffet has almost every type of cuisine imaginable. There is also a pair of two-story dining halls, pizza shop, sushi bar, and café.

This family-friendly cruise promises fun for all with four separate pools, seven hot tubs, and an absolutely enormous three-deck water slide in all its spiraling splendor.

If you feel like a workout while you are away, take advantage of the decked out fitness center with over thirty machines and enjoy ocean views while you sweat. There is also a full-service spa with a wide variety of treatments.

Children of all ages can enjoy the 1,300 square foot outdoor-indoor play center with a private pool, video arcade, and age-appropriate dance club.

It’s always sunny on the Carnival Sunshine, so what are you waiting for? Book a cruise on this majestic vessel and get ready to make some incredible memories!
