We chose this cruise for the embarkation port Honolulu and the ports we visited. The ship was repositioning and the time of year was perfect. It was very smooth sailing and the weather was very warm. We have never cruised Carnival Cruise Line before and were pleasantly surprised in a lot of ways but also disappointed in some ways as well. The service and staff were terrific, we enjoyed the lectures by the visiting experts. The food in the restaurants was of a very good standard. The entertainment was good but not fantastic. There were a lot of sea days with very little that was of interest to us. Leaving the ship and returning at the ports was always very easy. I was constantly cold in most areas of the ship including our cabin, we could not adjust the air conditioning. You had to pay to watch a movie in your cabin on a very small Tv screen. There were a lot of children on board who seemed to roam around the ship without supervision.

Cabin Review

Extended Balcony
Cabin 8K 8173
The cabin was clean and spacious, the TV was very small. The cabin was always cold as I could not regulate the air conditioning or switch it off. We were on deck 8 which is below the pool deck. You could hear the chairs scraping and people running.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

    There is market as soon as you get off the ship, otherwise you are best to get a driver to take you around, we were charged $100 aud for a tour of 4 hrs which was plenty. There are a lot of drivers waiting for passengers to leave the ship. There are also massages and hair braiding and henna tattoos right next to the wharf. We did hear some of the shore excursions were good, others were not too happy.
