Great cruise! by abkitten

Food and service was great. We didn't really care for the entertainment shows that we went to, except for one of the comedian shows.

Had a good time overall. Disappointed in the quality of entertainment, food and cost of pretty much everything. Excursions were way too expensive for what you get

First time Cruise - Amazing experience by jacquesmarcotte

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Once again, big kudos to the Staff, especially the bartenders, Luther and Theresa. The Art Gallery was a great time and big thanks to Didi, Loren, and Aga. I am now an art collector. LOL I did not find a list of the onboard activities until we were onboard. It would have been nice to have the full schedule a few weeks prior to the cruise. Maybe I missed it somehow. Lastly, as this was my first cruise (with the exception of the high speed turn on the way back to Cabo, let's not say Titanic) the cruise was amazing. We watched the sunrise our first day out, and slept part of the night on the deck on the way back. We made new friends and the time I spent with my girlfriend was extremely special. The adult only areas allowed us some quiet romantic time that I will cherish.

Loved the ports I visited in Hawaii by CrusingTom

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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.

Not the right time of year to cruise to Hawaii - too cold! by clhonsberger

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The Pacific in January is cold and choppy. If you want to go to Hawaii in January - Fly!. The food on board is not very good. We didn't starve but what we did have was very limiting.

My husband and I took our four older boys and one girlfriend (now engaged!) as their Christmas present for 2018. They all loved the trip.

Mexican Riviera Cruise by mayersr10

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

The cruise was a great getaway for the price. All the staff and service on board were friendly and helpful when needed. I wish there were a little more activities and games during the sea days but the ones they did have were still fun to participate in.

Hawaiian Carnival Cruise by pmhodge3

The amounts charged to my Visa card do not match my final billing statement. My account is now showing a negative balance even though there was enough available to cover the final balance due when departing.

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

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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.

The seas from Long BEACH to HAWAII and back were rough as we were forewarn. Many people such as my wife became ill. The amenities , activities , and food were great.
