We chose this cruise because we wanted to visit the Hawaiian Islands, and start in Vancouver so we could see the sites there. To the positive of Carnival, we went on a cruise with them last November, and loved the Splendor!
We are not complainers, and usually only take reviews of ships with a grain of salt, because a lot of reviewers seem to expect so much!!
However! This ship and cruise was honestly from hell I must say! Embarking in Vancouver was the biggest screwed up situation I have ever encountered! Lines upon lines to get on the ship! We were in line I think for well over an hour. Carnival workers said they were working with a new system, ok..well set a really bad precedent to begin with.
