Sailing August 24th thru August 29th 2019

Join our Friends & Family from Island Bar & Grill Surfside Beach for a command performance sailing on one of the favored ships at sea, Carnival Sunshine soon coming to the Port of Charleston, 

Departing on August 24th  2019, it is from here where we will embark on a 5 night escape to the Private sojourn of Half Moon Cay followed by the bustling port of Nassau in the Bahama Islands.  The ship is also a destination in itself with so many things to do including her one-of-a-kind 3-Story, Adults Only Serenity Deck that we are sure to enjoy during the 2 "sea days" we will journey to and from our exotic destinations.

Included with your incredible Early Booking Group Fares is a $75.00 On-Board Stateroom Credit, a Bottle of Champagne & Chocolate Covered Strawberries and a 1-Hour Cocktail Party planned for our Group!  

All Fares listed include Tax & Port Charges so if you're going to check things out on your own to see how we compare to booking direct, keep that in mind.  As of the time of publishing, we had the very best fares available.  We also book into ANY & ALL Promotions being offered by Carnival so make sure you take advantage of the Group Fare & Amenities afforded to us.

As you can see, we had a pretty incredible time on our last trip and hope you will all consider joining us this year. 

With a whole new bigger and newer ship to explore, it will also be a whole new adventure for all of us to experience together. 

Some new and exciting features are the Dive In, Theater Under the Stars, the Hasbro Game Show, Fahrenheit 555 SteakhouseJiJi Asian Kitchen & my favorite, Redfrog Pub located just past Ocean Plaza.   There's also Sports Square with a "Speedway Waterworks and a Ropes Course at Sea.  Don't forget to stop by Skybox Sports Bar to check on the latest scores & Alchemy Bars for a "Master Mixologist" creation of the day.  Get your "groove on" at the Havana Bar or try your luck at the Sunshine Casino.   We had some lucky big dollar winners on board last year and it just might be your turn to win this time!
