My girls are three and five years old and I thought it would be years before we took them on their first cruise. But when, Carnival Cruise Lines invited us to sail on Carnival Sunshine’s inaugural voyage from Port Canaveral, Florida – I just knew we had to go.
Here are just a sampling of activities you can enjoy with your family on the Carnival Sunshine -
SportSquare - You don’t want to miss seeing this fantastic, suspended ropes course 150 feet above the seas. My girls loved playing Twister and mini-golf. Maggie likes to think she’s a pro-mini golfer and there’s no better place to play than on the 10th floor of a cruise ship! In SportSquare, we also found tons of families playing fooseball, basketball and even outdoor chess!
Hasbro, The Game Show - This is the one event I wished we had been able to squeeze in during our trip. It’s a live game show with larger-than-life adaptations of Hasbro’s popular games and participants are chosen from the audience. An oversized Yahtzee game? Yes, please!
WaterWorks – The squeals of excitement coming from WaterWorks was contagious! The 334-foot-long Twister water slide – the longest in the fleet – was the highlight, there is a height restriction of 42inches. For the little ones, my girls loved the smaller slides and splash areas for toddlers. Beware of the splash bucket that dumps out water!
This is just a small sampling of the activities families can experience on the Sunshine Carnival. In the coming weeks, I’m going to share even more about our cruise – dining, kids club amenities and even our shore excurision in Freeport, Bahamas. I’ve got all the scoop – stay tuned!
