We chose this cruise as we felt it would be a relaxing yet fun way to complete our two week holiday in Hawaii and we asked friends who had only cruised once before to join us. We have cruised 10+ times before and most of those cruises have ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it was a great way of returning from Hawaii after exploring the "Big Island". Embarkation was swift with no hassles and we found our suite quite liveable. I had purchased a large suite (4273) as I ... Read more

We sailed with Carnival a number of times. Unfortunately the food quality and amenities deteriorated each time. Service are suffering too because the staff are overworked. This might be the last time we will set foot on a Carnival ship. ... Read more

First I will break the cruise down to two sections: GOOD and NOT SO GOOD (BAD) GOOD: Our cabin was great (7246 on Verandah Deck). It seemed to be roomier than the last Princess cruise we did and we also had an extended balcony. This ... Read more

We've sailed on Princess, Rhapsody and some P&O cruises so I'm comparing the ship to them. Overall I wouldn't sail with Carnival again as they don't compete. We had 3 kids 16, 13,11. There always some good points and bad so I will explain ... Read more
