So I did it! I pulled the trigger on Hawaii.
Thank you cyber monday Carnival sale. I got me a balcony 8C on a 15 day Hawaiian cruise on the Miracle this is similiar to the one my parents are doing right now. Past guest rate was $1519 per person. Which is the cheapest I have seen this cruise. It leaves Dec 7, 2013 they is probably why most people aren't booking it because it arrives back in Long Beach CA on 12/22/13. We will drive to port so no big deal for us.
