15 Night Hawaii (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 17, 2015
Ship: Grand Princess
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: E633
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

Dining room service was slow and our waiter was not very friendly. The atrium always smelled of cigarette smoke from the casino. There was water leaking from the ceilings and the lights kept dimming in the dining room.  Floor tiles were loose in the food court. Our mattress needed to be replaced. 

On the positive side, the music and entertainment was the best I have seen on any cruise. The food in the food court was as good as any other cruise ship we have taken. The ship was on time at every port. The passengers were very elderly and so I don't recommend this cruise for younger couples.

Ship Quality

This ship is overdue for maintenance. The problems will probably be fixed.

Ship Tip

Passengers were elderly so if you want excitement or partying, this is not for you.

The free shuttle from Maui Divers was a waste of time, Burger King has free Wi-Fi.

We took the free streetcar to shopping, and then took their tour and it was good.

This was our favorite island. I took the city bus for $2.00 to a nice beach.
