    It seems to be a very compact 30x zoom with manual controls. Nice!

    Wonderful review and amazing photos. You always make me feel as if I'm cruising with you and Patty.
    I didn't realize that the Carnival Destiny is now the Carnival Sunshine. I wonder why they changed the name of the ship? We sailed on the Destiny in Feb after 9/11. It was a memorable cruise with many firefighters from NYC.

    Just back from my 4 day get away cruise with my son Ryan aboard the Carnival Sunshine to Saint John. We had a great time. As I mentioned earlier, I will not be doing a full review of this cruise, but I will share some photos after I get them uploaded.

    So here’s the quick rundown on our 4 day cruise to Saint John.

    We embarked the Carnival Sunshine on October 13th. The weather wasn’t bad at all today at 70 degrees and cloudy. Check in in the VIP Lounge was quick and easy, and at 11:15 Ryan and I were among the first on the ship. Who’s up for a Funship Special and a Guy’s Burger?

    We were in Cabin 7208, which was right next door to the cabin Patti and I had in September. Panny and Suriat were our room stewards once again and were happy to see us!

    We are sailing away from New York City…..

    We decided to just hang out at the Red Frog Rum Bar, instead of being at the rail taking pictures. Our CD Emma was getting the party started…..

    I did get this picture as we passed Lady Liberty from my seat at the Red Frog Rum Bar…..

    Our plan for this cruise was simple. Relax, gamble a little bit, go to the comedy shows, and hang out at the sports bar.

    We had Anytime Dining but never made it to the Dining Room. Our dinners wound up being Guy’s, the Deli, and the Lido Marketplace. I did eat at JiJi’s one night, and again it was simply awesome!

    Our Platinum gift turned out to be the infamous visors which will look pretty good on our Nieces children’s heads!

    Our first sea day was very chilly and windy, so most people just stayed inside. Today was the blackjack tournament in the casino. Ryan and I both entered and we both advanced to the final table…..

    As luck would have it, my Diamond invitation was for dinner with the Captain. Apparently, there weren’t too many Diamond members on this cruise. But because we hadn’t packed any suitable clothes for dining with the Captain on Cruise Elegant Night, we had to decline. I received this fruit basket instead…..

    Our day in Saint John was enjoyable. Though the temperature was only in the low 40’s, we enjoyed walking around town, the City Marketplace, and finally ending at Rocky’s Sports Bar where we had a few beers and lunch…..

    That’s all that I have for pictures.

    The sea day back to New York was a lot nicer than the first sea day. The winds had died down and the temperature was a lot warmer. It was nice to be able to sit outside at the Red Frog Rum Bar again.

    Would you believe that they ran out of Thirsty Frog Red? Yep, they did. Bummer!

    This was the first time that we tried some of the hot items on the room service menu. We were not impressed. We tried the chicken tenders, chicken wings, and firecracker shrimp, and all were overcooked and dry. The pizza was undercooked, and the French fries arrived cold. Not good.

    We did the self - debarkation, and as Diamond / Platinum members we were among the first off of the ship. We were home by 9 am.

    We had a great father and son weekend!

    Once again I get hungry when I see that moose... ;)

    Congratulations to Ryan for winning the Blackjack tournament! Way to go!
