October 2015 - 15 Night Hawaii Carnival Journeys (Los Angeles Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Miracle
The overall vacation experience was great. We really enjoy the relaxation of the sea days and we spent the majority of this time in the Serenity Area which was very peaceful. At times it was crowded and we noticed the same people taking lounge chairs that would disappear for hours. I notified the person at the desk but they didn't do anything even though many people were looking for a place to relax. The food was very good and the menu selection was better than I anticipated for a 15 day cruise. The service in the MDR was ok, but in the defense of the waiters, there were people coming in up to an hour late. That really disrupts the service for everyone for the tables they serve. The only other issue was with the times the Sports Bar and Alchemy Bars would open. They would post a time but this would be the time the staff began to setup so the area would not be open for 30 minutes past the time posted. Also in the Sports Bar they would have events listed but no one available to change the channels. We had to to go Guest Services and then wait sometimes 30+ minutes for someone to be located to come in. We had outstanding service from the waiters in the Casino. We would put this cruise with itineraries we would do again.
