Review summary

Cruising to Hawaii in the Pacific Ocean in January was a little to rough, cold and windy for me. I had to wear an ear patch due to sea sickness for the first time. I loved the sea days for relaxing and spending time with friends. I enjoyed the ports of call for the most part, just wished I had more time at each port. This was a very reasonable priced cruise, but I would like to visit Hawaii again and stay longer.

Lahaina Luau excursion - was expecting more of an original Luau. This was too staged. Food was just okay

Honolulu, Oahu

Visited the USS Missouri which I highly recommend. Also visited Pearl Harbor Memorial, but did not get to go on the memorial itself. Went whale watching with Honolulu Star- saw a few from a distance. Climbed Diamond Head and survived!

Kailua-Kona, Hawaii Did not visit port

Ocean swells to bad for tenders. Did not get to visit

Hilo, Hawaii
