Cruises on board the Carnival Sunshine

Carnival Sunshine is the front runner ship of the Destiny-class of cruise ships operated by the esteemed Carnival Cruise Line. The ship was christened at a glittering ceremony in the beautiful city of Venice in November of 1996 by the wife of the founder of Carnival Cruise Line, Ted Arison. The Sunshine holds the distinguished record of being the first passenger ship ever built to be over 100,000 tons. A very impressive feat of engineering! The ships received major renovations in 2013 so cruise passengers can expect the new and improved ship to be fully loaded with modern accommodation and amenities.
