Review summary

Embarkation was confusion and lines, some nice shows and comedians to watch on the way to Hawaii, Great visits to beautiful islands at each of our port of calls in Hawaii, interesting experience in Mexico, and the drudgery of disembarkation.

Food and Dining

I enjoyed my experience in the main dining rooms for the most part. The Buffets are too unorganized for me.

I think the major shows could have been taking up a notch. While they were enjoyable, not all the cast were of the quality I would have expected.

Children's Programs

Didn't take any children with me on the cruise

This is were you get on the ship. Not clearly marked where to check bags to get on ship once you get out of taxi. Lines to get on the ship.

5 out of 5
Enjoyed a trip to a plantation. The guide was knowledgeable and fun to listen to her stories of the plantation, crops, and the island.

Honolulu, Oahu

5 out of 5
Great excursion into the city with a guide and a visit to Waikiki.

Kailua-Kona, Hawaii

1 out of 5
The captain decided not to go to this port. We were greatly looking forward to this port stop. We also had an excursion booked for this port and while we were refunded the cost, that didn't make up for the loss.

Hilo, Hawaii

5 out of 5
Enjoyed out excursion, just not enough time to spend at Pearl Harbor and the memorials.

Ensenada, Mexico

5 out of 5
Another great excursion to an open air flea market, the sea blow hold, and did a wine tasting. Enjoyed ourselves. Just wish we had a little more time at this port of call.
