Review summary

Quite choppy seas, and windy after leaving San Francisco. Four plus days of large ocean waves on the initial voyage to Hilo wasn't a very pleasant experience.

Sea conditions were much better on the return, except for being very windy topside, A much smoother ride on the return was appreciated by all passengers..

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Great menu choice, and overall quality was good. Unfortunately, all dining venues save for the Buffet, shared same daily menu. Sabatini's has lost something and was a disappointment.
