Review summary

Seeing Hawaii was a dream come true for both of us. We did not want to fly there all the way from the east coast, so this cruise fit the bill. You have to be okay with lots of downtime during the 4 ocean days there and the 5 days coming back.

Need a much better system - it's very chaotic.

Service and staff were all wonderful except for one. Henrico, our room steward was top notch. Marina, in the cosmetics store needs some more customer service training.

The town has nothing to see and the excursion was a horrible waste of money. Your company needs to reevaluate this relationship.
