The seas were a bit rough but the Captain tried his best to navigate around really rough storms and he got us to our ports early so we got more time off of the ship which I really appreciated. The ship is a little outdated compared to the others but still a fairly nice ship. The cabins are nice but the showers are definitely pretty small. All of the waiters and waitresses were very kind and our Head Waiter Shailesh was absolutely amazing. The entertainment was pretty good though there were some days where the activities got a little sparse on the 14 day cruise. I missed Mar-Q but Lee was a great cruise director. The ports were all beautiful and the one excursion that we booked went really well. Unfortunately we missed Kona but we did get at least another day in Honolulu since Kona was having too bad of weather to be able to have been able to get on the shuttles if we had gone over there. I would like it if Carnival did update some things on their Hub app like the account summary that we had a bit of a hard time with. We do already have our next cruise booked with the newest and one of the most updated ships, the Panorama, so looking forward to that.
