We booked this cruise so that we could have a week in Waikiki and then cruise home. We had a great time in Honolulu.
This was our first time on Carnival Legend, but have been on Carnival Spirt twice.
We had the first boarding time of 12.30 - 1pm, although it did appear that everyone had turned up to board at the same time! So it did take a little while to get through and on board, although the process went fairly smoothly (nothing like the repo cruise we did on the Carnival Spirit from Singapore in 2015, which took nearly 3 hours to get on board and standing in extreme temperatures).
