If you are 65+ this is the ship and cruise for you!  Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against the elderly, cause I'm 51 and I'm no spring chicken but this was a bit much.   I've been on about 10 cruise, I've been on Carnival 3 times and my overall experiance has been ok.  This ship was a big disappointment first off as someone else mention, getting on and off the boat took hours and we were outside in the heat.  The food was just ok, there were a group of about 10 of us and every night someone had to send their food back, not good or under/over cooked, I got to the point I just no longer wanted to go to the dining room.  The food on the lido deck was just ok same stuff everyday.  We spent 4 day at sea going and 4 at sea coming back and you would think they would have had more activities planned, there should have been shows every night on the main stage,  I would say 85% of the guests were over 60 and in wheel chairs & walkers,  I have never been on a cruise with so many wheel chairs.  There was even someone on there with his companion dog. This cruise is geared towards a much older generation the boat was dead by 10pm. The disco was always empty, there would always be my group and a few others.  The comedy club and bingo was the highlight of everyone's day because there was nonthing eles to do. Overall Hawaii was Beautiful I would love to go back but not one Carnival's Miricle.  If I were to take another cruise  I would rather fly there and get on a ship in Hawaii or just stay on land.  Not enough to do on this boat for 15 day.Crying
