Carnival Cruises have a reputation for excellence and fun. With the most US departure points of any cruise line, Carnival are all about convenience, making
it easier for you to get on board and start relaxing.
When comparing a Carnival Cruise to a resort vacation, it's easy to see the incredible value and savings. Even without counting the flights, an
all-inclusive cruise is much cheaper than staying at a resort, and with Carnival you'll be unpacking once and arriving at a new and exciting destination
almost every day.
Carnival came up with the idea of shorter, less expensive cruises to appeal to the American market and help you make the most of your vacation time. This
is great if you're a first time cruiser and would like to try a cruise without spending too many days at sea.
Carnival has a massive twenty three ships operating around the world and in 2012 introduced the Carnival Breeze, a completely new ship in its Dream class.
In 2013 the Carnival Sunshine was reintroduced. The ship was previously the Carnival Destiny and underwent massive refurbishment. The ship has a passenger
capacity of 3006, and as Carnival says: "Everything the sunlight touches on Carnival Sunshine has been doused with an extra dose of fun."
The Carnival Sunshine has a huge serenity area that takes up three decks and includes a waterfall, and a brand new Sunshine Atrium that is sure to impress.
The kids will be kept happy in the onboard waterpark, and the ship has dining options from around the world.

kids want, and yours will have so much fun they won't want to leave the ship.
Kids of all ages will enjoy Camp Carnival, which has great counselors who'll ensure they have a good time. They'll be split into groups from 2-5, 6-8 and
9-11 years, and they'll love the play areas which have an awesome Dr Seuss vibe.

Teens will love Club 02 where they can hang out with people their age and watch movies, do karaoke and have pool parties. They'll make "friends for life"
and will be adding each other as friends on Facebook before the cruise has even ended.
Perhaps the biggest draw for the kids is Carnival Waterworks, the amazing onboard waterpark that features hundreds of feet of waterslides, including side
by side slides for racing. The Carnival Sunshine is home to the Speedway Splash, which teams a thrilling waterslide with special lighting effects to make
