6. Largest Serenity Deck
The Serenity Deck is an adult oasis at sea. You can curl up in a hammock or lounge chair and watch the sea go by. The adult-only area features a bar, waterfall pool, and ample space to relax. There are 3 levels of relaxation on the Carnival Sunshine.
7. Largest Waterworks
Time to be a kid again! Get ready to head up the stairs and slide down the waterslide. You can even race your friends down the racing slides.
If water slides are not quite your thing there is so much more to see and do at the largest Waterworks in the Carnival Fleet.
8. Chef’s Table
The Chef’s Table is a foodies paradise. Multiple courses of delicious food prepared by the Executive Chef onboard the ship. You have the opportunity to tour the galley and see the behind the scenes workings of the kitchen.
You can see just how the chocolate melting cake is made. You are escorted as a small group to a private dining room where you will experience the best food that Carnival has to offer. Each course is beyond amazing.
If you are vegetarian don’t worry you can still enjoy the Chef’s Table. Just let the staff know ahead of time and they can prepare a vegetarian meal for you.
9. Bonsai Sushi
Bonsai Sushi offers options ranging from $2 to $15 depending on the menu items. You can have fresh-made sushi, sashimi and so much more.
Fancy a bit of Sake? Bonsai Sushi has you covered.
If you are dining with a few people check out the Sushi Boat it is amazing and well worth ordering.
10. Alchemy Bar
The Alchemy Bar is one of our favorite places on the ship. They serve imaginative drinks that cure what ails you. You can order straight from the menu or tell the highly-trained bartenders your favorite flavors and they will whip up a special drink just for you.
The Carnival Sunshine offers something for everyone. This ship is built for fun and entertainment. The food is amazing and you won’t starve that is for sure. Guests young and old will find something that they love on the Carnival Sunshine.
