Amazing Hawaii, but Carnival... the Good, the Bad, and the Never Sailing Again Points

My husband and I have taken many cruises on Carnival, the ship its self was what we excepted, but the trip over and back from Long beach was not what we excepted. It was cold and windy couldn't be on our balcony without a jacket, give me the Caribbean. The entertainment was great but days at sea and no sun was tuff. The food was nothing to write home about except the Pizza and Sushi. Sushi was ...

My title sums it up. I thought it would be nice to have 4 days before and after visiting Hawaii. It did not think about the fact we may have to skip a port or 2. Even that did not seem too bad until it happened. In Honolulu, we were told we could not get into the next stop because of bad weather at that port. We were told that we could have a 2nd day in Honolulu. OK That seemed reasonable, BUT we ...

My wife and I went with 4 other couples to celebrate my sister-in-laws 50th birthday. As a group we've been planning this trip for nearly 2 years. When we booked the trip we expected that Carnival would know that the weather is not good during this time of year, and we never would have booked this trip knowing that fact. Sailing across the pacific we knew that leaving from Long Beach the ...

Chose this cruise to "get away and have a good time." Sadly with cruises of longer length there is a much older crowd. The ships nightlife was not as energized as my previous cruises. Carnival did do a good job of trying to please all but a shotgun blast will only work for close range and shorter cruises. Previous Journeys cruises I have been on did provide so much more entertainment and a ...

My wife and I chose to celebrate my retirement after 40 years in fire service with this 15 day cruise to Hawaii. Overall a great time with many dedicated staff members on the Carnival Miracle working to make it special. A special recognition to Joner our cabin steward. The ship was clean and the rooms were clean and comfortable. We had a balcony on the 7 the floor towards the front. We only ...

Thought it would be nice to relax & cruise to Hawaii (this was a 15 day cruise) We flew into LAX the day before the cruise but returned in the morning to take the transportation bus to Long Beach. It was difficult finding the representatives for Carnival Lines at LAX. Standing in line at the port to register took about an hour +, not too bad. We took a bus into Long Beach to walk around ...

As a quick bit of information I've cruise with Carnival 2 times before (including on the Miracle in 2005) and also with NCL, Princess, HAL, RCI and MSC. This cruise was part of a wider trip to the west coast of the states and was the best Hawaii round trip itinerary out of all the major players (Princess, HAL and Celebrity) as it's the only one that does 5 ports in Hawaii instead of 4. It ...

This was our first cruise and I treated my wife to a cruise to Hawaii for our 25th wedding anniversary. Upon our arrival and departure from Long Beach, we stayed in the Renaissance and took a short taxi ride over to the terminal. We arrived around 1230 and after dropping off our luggage we went through security. We took the obligatory photo and preceded to our room. Believe it or not but the ...

Carnival was not "up front" with it's guests for this cruise. A lot of us didn't realize until it was too late, that the Miracle has been having propulsion problems since early this year, and decided to continue operation of the vessel, which is now scheduled to go into dry dock in early 2015. Because the ship couldn't cruise at normal speed, we had a multitude of itinerary changes. We arrived ...

The one word that describes this cruise is disappointing, which is too bad because my family and I were really looking forward to this cruise despite some of the negative reviews we had read. We had also sailed with Carnival on the Paradise some years ago and were very happy with our experience. Unfortunately I allowed our previous cruise to influence my decision instead of doing my due research. ...
