Over the next few days, I will be sharing recaps from our time aboard the Carnival Sunshine. It was an amazing experience. Hope you will enjoy our life on the ship. This is a sponsored review but as always, all thoughts and opinions are of my own.
This day brought us into the port at St. Kitts.
Little Sis enjoyed interacting with the monkeys the most on this island and we had to buy her own stuffed monkey before we left the island. Notice the monkeys in the below pictures?
After spending about two and half hours on the island, we boarded the ship to enjoy the low crowds aboard. The rest of the afternoon was spent at the pool just relaxing with the family. We had the pool all to ourselves. Since this boat only has one family pool, it is hard to enjoy it on sea days so we took advantage of it on this day.
For lunch, we grabbed burgers from Guy’s Burger Joint. You have to try the burgers at least once when you are on a Carnival Cruise. There are different recipes, but Big Sis and I grabbed the “Plain Jane” and put our own toppings on the burger. No bun for me, but every bite was still delicious.
We ended up leaving the pool around 4:00pm since everyone had to be back on the boat at 4:30. It was a good time to head to our cabin for a little bit of downtime before dinner. It is nice to have a balcony with your cabin as you can take a few moments and relax by the water. You can capture sunsets like this:
Dinner was awaiting us! I thought I would share with you our menu from the night so you can get an idea the type of dinner options you have to choose from each night.
As you will see from the pictures below, I chose the asparagus vichyssoise as my starter. This was the best chilled soup. Delicious! For our main meals, Hubby and I both chose the petite filet mignon and Big Sis chose the shrimp and fries from the comfort kitchen. Pumpkin pie was the dessert of choice for the night. Isn’t it amazing at the options? Anyone up for ox tongue?!
The night was capped off by a show with Dana Tison. A comedian juggler?! Who knew there was such a person? He did a great job and definitely had intriguing juggling skills.
Our monkey and towel animal greeted us as we made it back to our cabin for the night!
San Juan, Puerto Rico is up next…
Don’t miss our other days on the Carnival Sunshine!
