  1. If you look under the research tab at the top of this page, then tap reviews there are several recent reviews there. You will have to tap ships and then find Carnival Sunshine. The reviews are either really good or really bad (some on the same sailing). We will be sailing on the Carnival Sunshine next week. I am getting excited!
  2. I ordered my cards on December 13th. The AARP site said they couldn't guarantee delivery by Christmas. I received them 4 days later.😊
  3. The last two winters we have taken 16 day cruises combined with land vacations and was gone a month. The time goes by fast! If you wasn't bored on the last five day cruise, I am sure you will enjoy the extra two days. The other plus to it is you will be able to explore some new ports!
  4. I am going on a Carnival cruise January 12, 2019 and it has been sold out for weeks.
  5. I have booked TBA three times. The first time I booked balcony guarantee on Carnival and got a balcony on the lido deck (exactly where I would have booked it). I was assigned my cabin about 30 days before the cruise. Last year, I booked a balcony guarantee on Norwegian. I was assigned a balcony cabin the very next day (about 60 days out) towards the aft of the ship. Very happy. I currently have a TBA ocean view booked for January. Still waiting to hear my assignment but probably won't hear until some time in December.
  6. Yes, my husband and I have been to the party many times as gold members. I have 5 more cruise days than him, and I turn platinum on our next cruise and he doesn't. I guess I will be attending the next party by myself (if I decide to go).
  7. I have enjoyed reading your posts and seeing your pictures. I will be turning platinum on the Sunshine in January! I am so excited!
  8. We purchased our upcoming January cruise through a big box store and we have already paid it off with gift cards.
  9. We did the Panama Canal cruise - 16 days last year in an inside and did fine but of the 21 cruises, I have been on 16 have been insides, 2 ocean views, and 3 balconies. Yes, I would prefer a balcony but given the choice between a 7 day with balcony or a 14 or 16 day inside, I would choose the inside every time. When you are going through the Panama Canal, you are going to want to move around the ship anyway to see the canal from different views. Have fun whatever you end up booking!
  10. I have used the baby powder to remove sand and it works like a charm! They sell small travel size baby powder so it doesn't take up much room.:)
  11. I turn Platinum on my next cruise in January. I currently have 65 days and the cruise is 13 days long. I have already printed my luggage tags and they say priority. My cruise documents say Platinum. I am excited!!!
  12. My absolute favorite port is St. Thomas (with a trip to St. John by ferry). Second favorite - probably Sydney, Australia. Number three - Venice. Number 4 - Belize (I know most people hate this port but we take the public ferry over to Caye Caulker.) Number 5 - Barbados. I could go on but there would be a lot of islands that tie for sixth place.
