Does anyone have recent pictures of the Carnival Sunshine (5-day Nassau & Princess Cay) MDR menus? We will be traveling for Spring Break and this is the only menu I can't find.

Are you going 3/21?

The menu's are the same fleet wide meaning that day one on any 5 night cruise has the same menu regardless of which ship you are on. The only difference would be which night is your elegant night so they days may be switched up a little. I would just search by 5 night menu.

I couldn't find any 5 day menus anywhere that weren't more than 5 years old.  Does anyone know where we could find them?

I found some 5-night menu scans on my computer.  I found them online somewhere, so I can't fully attest to the accuracy.  I'm pretty sure they are close to the 5-night menu being used right now.  I found them when doing research for a 5-night last November.  I didn't end up eating in the MDR to verify these because I got a cold early on and didn't feel like sitting for a 1-2 hour dinner.  I'll do 5 posts.  Starting with night 1.  And I apologize if anything is missing.  I'm just posting what I have.  They don't appear to have the specific port of call portion of the menu, so there will be some variation depending on the ship/sailing.

Night 5.  My wife and I love the Grilled Beef Tenderloin on the From the Grill portion of the menu.  I rarely hear it mentioned as a favorite but is probably the best thing I've eaten on any cruise including specialty dining.

None of those menus have any options to purchase upgraded steaks or lobster from the steakhouse.  Does sunshine have a steakhouse?  I'm thinking they are outdated but someone let us know.  thanks.

Those are NOT the specific Sunshine menus.  They are the "generic" Carnival 5-night cruise menus.  They are also lacking the Port of Call section that has items specific to that day's port.  I posted them as an example and am pretty sure they are still mostly accurate based on my memory of a 5-night cruise on the Valor a couple months ago.  These are the basic starting point for a Carnival 5-night cruise across the fleet as far as I know.  There is certainly some variation based on ship and sailing.  I don't think not having the section regarding upcharge steak/seafood immediately invalidates them.  And the Sunshine does have a Steakhouse on the ship.

Here is a video showing the 5-night menus from the Valor a few months ago.  The core of each menu is the same as the ones that I posted.  There is another page each night (except formal night) with the Port of Call selections and Steakhouse Selections that is unique to that particular ship/sailing.  I have not yet found one specific to the Sunshine, but I would expect the vast majority of the Sunshine 5-night menu to be the same as those posted.

I can confirm that the menus posted by j1d1 are the main menus, in day order, for the Sunshine. There are four upcharge items available every night as well for $20 each.

 

We only ate in the MDR twice because it just wasn't appealing.  I

HIGHLY recommend eating at JiJi at least once, it was wonderful.

Thanks for confirming the 5 night dinner menus.  I think we will stick with specialty restaurants on the sunrise cruise we have coming up.  Appreciate it!
