Hawaii by dar1333

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Overall, the food was definitely an improvement over the last time we cruised NCL. More interesting activities are needed, scheduled at a time when participation is possible. The ports were amazing and overnighting in Maui and Kaui allowed for more exploration of these beautiful islands

Good way to visit 4 islands in a week by nusguy2001

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

We had a great time in Hawaii. Loved seeing all the islands. The ship was nice and felt less crowded than other cruises. Food was good everywhere on the ship. Staff was good but the bartenders were slow! POA is a good ay to see Hawaii quickly and efficiently.

Beautiful Hawaiian cruise by ths609

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This is an excellent way to see all of the islands and learn their history. Great to have so many excursion options. Main issue is with the problem in having water to drink on board the ship.

Memories to last a lifetime. by framer1053

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was a trip that we will never forget. We enjoyed it with great friends and have a wonderful time. While the ship is not the largest or the most fabulous, it was still adequate and the staff and crew could not have been more friendly and helpful. I would recommend this to anyone that has never visited the Islands and also to those that have.

AQmazing Hawaiian Cruise by terirps

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

I have been on several cruises, my first with Norwegian. This is the perfect way to see Hawaii. There is a lot to see, was your time wisely because the time passes very quickly. The excursions are expensive. The helicopter is worth the money, you will not regret it. The helicopter tour will ask you to wear dark clothing so you wont get a reflection off the windows in your pictures. If you wear shorts which you will make sure to place something over your legs. I wore dark clothing but you can see the reflection of my legs in several pictures. It was an amazing cruise.

Overall we enjoyed it a lot by kenandcarolande

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Overall we enjoyed it a lot, but there were things that could have been better. Its a great way to see the islands. If I had other choices for the dates we needed I would have preferred a different cruise line, but we definitely liked the 2 overnight stays for the 2 best islands. The disembarkation/transfer process did not leave us with a good impression to end our trip. I would say 3.75 stars is a more accurate overall rating.

Definitely the way to see all of Hawaii by Cruiser5806277

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

I had been saving up for this, my 50th birthday cruise, for 10 years so, I splurged and got a suite for me, my Husband and my Niece. Worth every penny, and more. It will be hard to go back to a traditional state room after this.

Great Family Vacation by ambrunson

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Busy cruise with a port every day. It is a great way to see each of the larger islands so you can determine which one to visit again. Or if you don’t think you will get there again, good way to hit all the major sites.

Nice way to see Hawaii for a first timer. NCL has the market cornered.

Wonderful way to see hawaii by dolllady

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The ship is not fabulous but is adequate and the ports are really the trip. Ship ran on time every time and all scheduled events were on time. Food was abundant and well served. Cadillac diner was great for a fast meal. The tours were beyond what we expected always delightful and informative. Kauai and NaPali coast were our favorites. Highly recommend for getting to see a good portion of Hawaii without flying. We stayed a few days in Honolulu and a few days in Kona; highly recommend doing that to give a different perspective of the islands.

Cruise was underwhelming by KLB23

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We were constantly being sold something. It wasn’t very annoying and uncomfortable. The Key program was a complete rip off and joke. They did not give half of what it advertised and none of the staff knew what it was either which shows it was just another avenue to take your money.

Best way to see Hawaii by BethGinTx

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

This was not my favorite ship (out of 20 cruises) but I booked this cruise for the itinerary. Seeing the main four islands and not having to pack/unpack was such a benefit of this trip. The excursions offered were very good, even though expensive. Definitely recommend.

Lovely ship by margmex

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Lovely ship but first two days disorganized in dining room. Much better as the cruise progressed. Very disappointed in the fact that some ports were missed /cut short, better planning needed on the part of RC itinerary staff. Overall enjoyed the cruise and service very good.

RC Ovation Hawaii to Vancouver Cruise by sengle959

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Overall we had a good time. Could have been a great trip if not for the itinerary changes and tendering problems. The weather from Hawaii to Victoria was not the greatest, causing everyone to stay inside for most of the 5 sea days.

Unorganized Hawaii/Canada Cruise by michaelbarefiel

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Very nice ship with friendly staff and service personnel. Horrible planning on Roya Caribbean’s behalf! When entertainment department looks at each other while doing a show and whispers this is the first time doing this I’m so confused it’s a problem! The tinder service was horrible! I caught the first tinder off and still took an hour and a half to get off the ship! Getting luggage once getting off the ship will be the main reason for me to never cruise with Royal again! Talking with elderly people who cruised 35 times said this was the worst cruise they’ve been on!

Great ship, lousy itinerary by dalltucker

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

A beautiful and well designed ship. Communication on board was poor. Once that you learned the layout, it became easier.

Operational Nightmare by DanRoberts52

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We were very disappointed that SkyMiles allowed us to be cheated out of visiting the Big Island and the Volcano when those two itinerary changes were made. The credit we received was peanuts compared to the cost of the cruise. IF WE HAD KNOWN THAT THESE CHANGES WOULD BE MADE TO THE CRUISE, WE WOULD NOT HAVE TAKEN IT. We WOULD have canceled the cruise if we could have gotten all of our money back. And YOUR COMPANY said that we would get two or three Special Dinner coupons for the trip. WE DIDN'T! We will probably be using other agencies in the future, even though I love Delta Airlines and am a Diamond with them.
