  1. Carnival sunrise provides a lousy value and horrible service. The buffet lines snake around for miles…it doesn’t matter what time you visit the buffet, you will be greeted with a 30 people or more ahead of you diners…painful. forget about go8ng for seconds because once you see the long lines you will lose your appetite. Some waiters are nasty. The pools are tiny and only 4.5 ft deep. Entertainment options are scant. Overall you feel it’s a lousy value for what we were charged. This is the first and last time doing carnival.
