Did you try the self-serve beer station? I'm curious how that is working, with people who aren't skilled at pouring a draft beer, and if minors could sneak by using their parent's cruise card to buy a cold one.

I did not try. There were some instructions on how to correctly pour a beer and I saw one or two still blow it. At least one was smart enough to reach for a second glass and keep pouring when one glass overfoamed.

I don't think there would be anything to stop minors or anyone from using someone else's S&S card. Perhaps there was video surveillance but I didn't look for it.

I am confused - you show a LOT of construction pictures (that is all you show) - where are the pictures from your cruise?

I mean I hope THAT was not your cruise.

NO - I see what happened, I only clicked the first link: Carnival Destiny to Carnival Sunshine Transformation

I didn't realize he cared about the changeover enough to put up pictures from Carnival about the transformation in addition to his own cruise pictures.

What would be nice is a side by side viewing if what was, the construction, and what it is today.

The construction photos were just ones that I found from various internet sources.

I'll try this.

Okay - that was a lot of work..

It would be easier if you just told us how the cruise went.

Do you like the new Sunshine? I am curious if it felt crowded at all with all the new staterooms they added (some of which were not ready).

Really liked it.

Who knows what teens like? I didn't try the water slides but they look great and I heard they are really fast. Perhaps they would enjoy the ropes course.

The 3 deck Serenity is off limits for them.

Food in the MDR is standard Carnival fare but more menus since longer cruises. More steaks.

The steakhouse is standard and really good with excellent service.

Did not try the other pay restaurants at night - Ji Ji and Cucina but others really liked them.

I prefer to show people my experiences and let them decide if they like it or not. So much is subjective and too many people mislead others with words.

I really like the ship. There was still lots of little details that needed addressing, but nothing that had any impact on our cruise.

The main pool was closed (now open) but it was too cool, windy, and sometimes rainy to be used anyway. Mini-golf was also closed (also now open), new turf needed to be installed and the weather didn't cooperate.

The new 3 deck Serenity area was poplar and perhaps the mos crowded area. Now sure how serene it was. Noise from the big screen, dj, etc not objectionable during the day.

I didn't encounter long lines anywhere but also know better than to show up when a venue opens and expect to be the only one there. Go a little later.
