My husband and I had an amazing anniversary in Hawaii but did not enjoy our ship. We were disappointed in the food since we paid extra to eat in formal dining room and found out the buffet served the exact same meals. We did not purchase the drink package since they wanted add on more tax and gratuities even after we paid them ahead and would have had to pay for the days at port and the last day even though we got off the ship at 8:30am. The pictures were great but there was no package to choose from so you had to pay $22 each picture (not worth it). We had to wait 4 hours to get off the ship at a port due to ship docking with tender boats so we only seen that island for 4 hours. We were hoping for more Hawaiian themed activities on ship (music, decorations, picture backgrounds, or food) while at sea for 5 straight days but there was nothing to do with Hawaii until the first port in Hawaii. Overall the staff was amazing and out room was good except there was only 5 channels to watch at night and 3 of them were Carnival (excursions, shopping, show from previous day).

Cabin / Stateroom
Embarkation and Disembarkation
everyday was complete chaos and staff were not helpful
Ship Quality
not enough space
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
the activities were not age appropriate for everyone. we spent a lot of time and money in casino since there was nothing else to do.
the only entertainers we liked was Sam & James that was filling in for the 5 sea days and had to get off the ship at our first port .
Service and Staff
Gede and Merry at main bar lounge was great!
Food and Dining
the only restaurant on the ship was the buffet and the food was the same every day, salad bar had same choices every day, breakfast was same every day, pizza station was limited and same choices every day
Hilo, Hawaii

Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
more organized way and quicker of getting off ship for tender boat
