Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

After a minor glitch of some type in Long Beach that delayed boarding for about 3 hours, the rest of the cruise was wonderful in every regard.  The service from the dining room staff and the cabin staff, in fact every employee we came in contact with, was superb.  They never failed to offer a friendly greeting and a smile.  Disembarking on our return was amazingly fast.  We waited in one level of the dining room and were led to the security point and from there to an easy customs check in.  Luggage was carfully sorted in the terminal by tag number and transportation outside the terminal was plentiful.  All in all, a good experience.


The itinerary suited us perfectly and was one of the main resons for booking this cruise.  We generally like sea days and this offered plenty of those.  We could kick back and relax or choose from a good selection of activities each day.  Most of the night time shows were really good, easpecially the production shows, which were fantastic.  The port times were excellent for our plans, especially Maui and Oahu.  If anyone is at all interested in history, I highly recommend the VIP tour on Oahu.  After visiting the Arizona Memorial ( a must in my opinion) we toured two  military bases that were involved in  the attack and had lunch at one of them.  We ended our tour at the Nationbal Cemetery at the Punchbowl Crater, one of the most beautiful and respectfully done of all  the National Cemeteries.  On Maui we rented a car and drove the Road To Hana.  The scenery is spectacular but be warned the drive is long and slow, 3 1/2 hours to drive 45 miles.  Worth the trip.  Consider packing a pinic lunch to eat at one of the overlooks or beaches.  There's only one restaurant in Hana.
