Sunshine Happy Hour & Casino Questions


Recommended Posts

Sailing Sunshine to Bermuda in a couple of weeks.  There are two current/recent review threads but I didn't see that those folks spent any time in the casino so thought I'd ask here instead of hijacking their reviews.


When I sailed Carnival last (just over a year ago), there was a Happy Hour special at the casino bar only (this was on Ecstasy) around lunch time.  Is that a thing on Sunshine, too?  I don't typically drink hard liquor but had some sort of "mule" that was very tasty!  Since I'm usually at the port fairly early, I'd like to take advantage of the Happy Hour if possible


Casino - does Sunshine have the new Roulette wheel with the triple zeros?  I know that increases the house odds, but since I'm a big fan of the greens, I don't hate the idea.  And, are the chips $1 or $2?  I seem to remember when I sailed her (shortly after she was converted from Destiny) that they were $2 chips, which had some people unhappy.  I actually did quite well at the wheel on that sailing and am hoping for some more of the same this time!

I can't recall any happy hour when we were on the Sunshine in February, but I'm not a big drinker. However, I can tell you that the roulette had the extra green wedge (and I think they called it "B" for some reason). I generally got $1 chips.

Thanks.  I know there were some people upset a few years ago when some of the ships only had $2 chips.  I'm not a high roller and it didn't really affect me, but having come off a couple of MSC sailings where they had a casino "happy hours" on sea days where chips were only $0.50, a switch to $2 would make a difference.

I was just on the sunshine from Sep 22 -28.  I spent 95% of my time in the casino.   I had the Cheers package, so I have no idea if they had a Happy Hour or not.   I also play slots and 3 card poker, not roulette.   I had some friends who played roulette and they said there was an extra green spot (thought it was an extra 00 or something), but don't know if there was $1.00 chips.   Sorry I with all my time in the casino, i still wasn't able to answer your questions.  :)

Thanks.  It really won't make much difference since I have a casino budget and when my daily allowance is gone, I leave.  OK, sometimes I draw money from my onboard account and use it in the slots.  If I win (ha!), I've been known to cash out and take that back to the wheel and give it all right back.  I need to find something else to entertain me because I don't even play enough to get Drinks on Us and have never gotten a bounce-back offer.
