We just got back from from a 15 day Hawaii cruise on Carnival. We did it to save some money. We have only cruised on Disney prior to this and will never stray again. Cons Embarkment took about 3 hours. The food was very average this was the first cruise we have never gained any weight on. Everything we did you would have to stand in line. Tv in the stateroom usually had no reception. In Kona we were tendered to shore with the lifeboats off the ship. The crew really tried but these boats weren't designed to do this and it was an adventure. Dis-embarkment was also a total mess. Pros The help was friendly and our room steward was great. Pinnacale Steak house was fantastic. The ship was very clean. In talking to people who have been long term Carnival cruisers they agreed that this was the worst Carnival Cruise they had ever been on.
