I would like to share my experiences and thoughts about my recent cruise with Carnival.

This was a significant celebration for me as I turned 50 years old. Achieving this stage of my life commanded an extraordinary trip. In my plans, I wanted to do something exciting and new, therefore, a 15 day Carnival Cruise to Hawaii was a perfect. The main reason for choosing Carnival was for its reputation of being a fun and energetic cruise line. Well, I have never been so disappointed in my life, what a way to celebrate a milestone in my life.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin 8A

Cabins were clean, lots of room.

If we didn't have a broken balcony door that whistled all night and allowing cigarette smoke to fill our cabin from adjacent balconies, the room would have been perfect,

Port Reviews

Hilo

Helicopter ride over the volcano was very exciting and fun.

Maui

Great Island, wish I had mor time on this fantastic Island. I need to go back!

Great beaches!

Honolulu

Another great Island, need more time, so much to do. Will definately go back for a longer visit.

Great Beaches!

Kauai

Least favorite island, nothing to do, although very beautiful will not be back.

Kona (Kailua Bay)

Nicer side of the Big Island of Hawaii, wish I had a longer stay, a few hours was not long enough.

Great beaches here too! And of course fantastic COFFEE!

Ensenada

What a nice Mexican town! Not much time there, but had a great time. Would have been better to see it during the day.
