At 24 days this was the longest cruise Carnival has ever done. There were many firsts and it was enjoyable to experience all the first with the crew.

For a cruise this length there was very few repeated menus. The selection was great and the specialty dining did not disappoint.

The ships design was good. The Pink Lady is a little old but she is now in dry dock and being refreshed.

Cabin / Stateroom

The wrap around balcony was exceptional. Unfortunately we had to sacrifice couch for the balcony space but all in all a great trade off.

The Polynesian Cultural Center excursion is worth the money

Cross International Dateline

Got a nice certificate from the cruise line. Unfortunately it was dark when we crossed and I didn't get a chance to take a picture of the line in the ocean.

Guam, Mariana Islands

5 out of 5
Did the Fort Soleida and Point Gunn tour. Our tour guide gave us an extensive historical perspective of the island's history.

Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia

5 out of 5
The Traditional Borneo tour was great for someone who wants an overview of the country. Our tour guide was exceptional in his knowledge of the country.

Phu My (Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam

5 out of 5
Did the Cho Chi Tunnel excursion. Very informative as well for those interested in Vietnam War history. Crawling through the tunnels was quite interesting but you need to be physically fit.


5 out of 5
Did a post embarkation excursion though the cruise line that was informative and allowed us to see the highlights of the city. Spent the night and enjoyed walking the city prior to leaving the next day.


5 out of 5
Easy peasy, one of the best foreign port embarkations so far.
