I was concerned, my wife was very assuring.. You will enjoy it---she said.... It will be fun---she said. I enjoyed my first cruise---she said.She was right.......

From start to finish, I enjoyed the whole experience. Meeting a few new friends during the cruise, have now become good old friends.I hve been back since then to Lihue. I have also been on another cruise about that one on the Island Princess

The overall concept of relaxing was new to me and for the first holiday in 30 years, I think we chose well.

There will alsways be those who find anything to complain about anywhere.

After this first experience.....I'm not one of them.
