Overall I had a good time on the ship but the entertainment needs work. I was very disappointed to see that the night club had no DJ and just an oldies playlist every night. I went on the ship with two girlfriends in our early 30s and we were the youngest people on the ship besides a few young children. Without a proper dance club, there was often not much for us to do on the ship. We enjoyed the martini tasting and drinking on the deck but at night there was nothing for us to do and after 10:30 am the ship was a ghost town. The thriller dance flash mob with Richie was the highlight of our trip and I appreciated Richie's high energy and enthusiasm. The white hot dance party was the best night on the cruise too. The shows were a good C+ and were not worth it. The habachi grill was AMAZING and the diner was nice to have 24-7. The cruise staff was excellent everywhere we went and we enjoyed getting to know the staff. The bar staff in the Madri Gras lounge helped make our nights fun even when the music was horrible. Roberts Hawaii is the way to go for excursions and the luau in Kauai was SO worth it! If I didn't have the drink package which saved me a lot of money than I probably would have not survived. It was fun but next time I'm going on Carnival...

The drink package is the only way I survived the poor entertainment
