Review summary

Fabulous Staff, beautiful ship. Crew and staff were fabulous. Theatre shows were among the best we have seen at sea. Theatre has plenty of seating for handicapped. As well, dress code in the MDR was strictly enforced which was very nice to see.

Poor. They were training new staff and had recorded an erroneous credit card number on our boarding pass. Took 2 supervisors 20 minutes to correct.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Food was excellent. Would give a 5 except for the constant upselling for the specialty restaurants

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Lots of choices, most of which we did not partake as we took this cruise strictly for R & R.


5 out of 5
Fantastic floor shows and musicians. Guest entertainers were good as well. Largest entertainment group we have ever seen on a cruise ship.

Children's Programs

No kids

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Great waiters (Alvin and Jose) , Wine steward (Alan) and Cabin Steward (Benjamin)

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Lots of little nooks for R & R, Great seating around the pool. Central Atrium was a little small for some of the activities, but lots of seating on decks above.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Good layout with good size balcony. Closet is a little too narrow and cabin definitely needs more electrical outlets for people travelling with CPAP machines.

Ship tip

Drink packages and Internet packages are extremely overpriced.

Ports of call

Vancouver (Canada Place), British Columbia

3 out of 5
Far too many staff in the Cruise Terminal do not speak english and are unable to address even simple questions.

Hilo, Hawaii

3 out of 5
No idea why we would overnite in this port other than to sell overpriced tours. Would tather have gone to Kuwai or overnite in Honolulu

Cruise Kilauea Volcano

3 out of 5
Volcano was not active. Nothing to see.

Kailua-Kona, Hawaii

4 out of 5
Very pretty, but typical tourist resort. Would rather overnight here than Hilo.

Lahaina, Maui

4 out of 5
Love Lahaina but again typical tourist resort. That is getting far too overcrowded

Honolulu, Oahu

3 out of 5
Did not leave ship. Would rather overnight here than Hilo.


2 out of 5
Poor. No Porter's for wheelchair assistance. Once we got into the terminal (hour late) he first 3 staff we approached did not speak English and there was no signage pointing where to go to get picked up.
