Staff and service was excellent. 14 days is a long time at sea. Ports were for the most part non-exceptional.

Review summary

We tend to not rush around and a long cruise provided enough time to do nothing often but still hit all the things the ship had to offer. We do not gamble or drink, so we needed to find something else to do to fill the hours. We advise eating in the dining room as much as possible, as it is great food ( I loved the grain-fed beef!) and great variety and burns a few more hours. Make use of the excercise facility to burn the food and again, kill more hours. Ports were mediocre. Kauai is a great island and we found a good guide once off the ship. Still I was surprised we were let off in an industrial port that required going elsewhere to enjoy the island. All excursions are over-priced. In Honolulu we went down by Waikiki and found an inexpensive ($20 per) tour bus that gave us a nice trip outside of the city. Same for the other ports.
