Carnival Sunshine in Portland Harbor
Autumn is one of the best times of the year to travel to New England and Canada to experience the breathtaking fall foliage. Did you know that Carnival Cruise Lines offers a spectacular trip to the quaint ports of Boston, Portland, Halifax, and St. John? Explore 17th century architecture, shopping, dining, sight-seeing, and leaf peeping on this 7-day, 6-night cruise. Port of departure is New York City where you can get a jump start on your vacation by seeing a Broadway show the night before.
When the Carnival Sunshine docked in the Portland harbor in September, I had the pleasure of having lunch on board with other travel agents from the area! The ship features lots of amenities like WaterWorks, their onboard waterpark equipped with water slides galore, SportSquare where you can jog around the upper deck track or challenge your friends and family to a friendly foosball, ping-pong, or giant chess game. When it’s time to satisfy your cravings, check out any of their delicious dining options like Guy’s Burger Joint, Bluelguana Cantina, Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse, and Jiji Asian Kitchen. If you want a drink to lounge pool side or in the comforts of your own room, stop by the RedFrog Pub, BlueIguana Tequila Bar, SkyBox Sports Bar, the Alchemy Bar, and Carnival’s ever classic Havana Bar.
