This was our fourth cruise with carnival. We really enjoyed our royal caribbean cruises but don't think the extra $$$ers are worth it so we go carnival as they are much more affordable for our income. Always wanted to visit pearl harbor and love spending time out on the open seas so this cruise choice was a no brainer for us.
Embarkation was easy and pretty quick. The balcony cabins used to be serviced twice a day and we miss that as now it is made up only once a day:( the cabins are very adequate and the bed was very comfortable. The shower could have been sanitized a little beter but was ok.
The food choices in the dining room were not as diverse as on past cruises but were ok. The dining room staff we had was excellent. Ibrahim, tajana and sandro was an excellent team with sandro being an excellent team leader. It was very obvious that he really loves his job. THANK YOU SANDRO:) THE BREAKFAST BUFFET WAS GREAT WITH FIVE STARS GOING TO THE OMLET MAKERS:) THE BURGER BAR WAS ALSO AWSOME:)
the shows were not as many as on past cruises but the quality was awsome for the most part. The singers and dancers really work hard and the performances show. Thank you:) the hypnotist (don't know his name, sorry to say) show was awsome., one of the best shows i have ever seen. The take two duo of raul and carol were excellent. Hawaii was great. Our cruise director jamie was awsome. Overall the ships crew was very friendly. No problems at all.
one thing i really didn't like was our stop in ensenada mexico. Couldn't take five steps without being pestered by vendors, street people and store and restaurant owners trying to get you to go into their place of business. Were warned ahead of time by a mexican bus driver not to buy things from the children on the street trying to sell gum to tourist as they make so much money that way that they don't go to school. I couldn't wait to get back on the ship.
The shore excursions in hawaii. Although quite good were rather pricey. I recommend booking with private tour companies to save money.
this was the cruise of a lifetime for my wife and i.
Thank you carnival.
Don't get off the ship in ensenada!
