Excellent Value, but Short of Perfection

Sail Date: November 25, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

Very choppy weather created a downtime experience for many of the sea-sick passengers (and crew) for at least one day, and large swells prevented the stop we hoped to get at Mauii. It's a lot of time at sea, so if you lust for land, this isn't your cruise. Otherwise, the passengers were kept well occupied. The food is good, not great, and tends to read better on the menu than it actually tastes. Still, I had a very good time (even though my travel companion and I were both sick for a day, and even though we missed a stop in Mauii. The crew was very courteous, and the activities are plentiful.

The breakfast buffet is very substantial. Keep your choices simple and you won't be disappointed.
