It was a great cruise extremely relaxing and fun. Didn’t want to get off the ship.

I was impressed that when we got on the ship our room was ready and our luggage was waiting for us.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The Main dining rooms were great, the wait staff was wonderful. They catered to you and remembered your preferences. The food was great and the desserts were awesome. I don’t recommend the Horizons buffet, the food was not that good, the salads and breakfast was ok, but lunch and dinner were not that good.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
The hot tubs on deck 16 at the back of the boat were nice and quiet and not crowded. Extremely nice!

The Cruise Director and staff were awesome, plenty of activities, great Trivia games and shows. It was the first cruise I have ever been on that employees would visit and talk to the guests.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Our room steward was wonderful!! He introduced himself first thing when we got to our room, explained everything and left his card to call him if we needed anything. I have never had a room steward be this conscientious

Ship Quality

The ship is an old ship but it’s being maintained nicely. Only complaint is that more elevators are needed.

Cabin / Stateroom

The room was on the small side but not too bad. The beds were comfortable and our room steward did a wnderful job keeping the room clean.

Ports of call

Hilo, Hawaii

4 out of 5
Loved Hilo, booked a excursion to visit the National Volcano Park. Our tour guide was awesome! Our tour group was small which made it nice. The tour guide (Kirk) made the excursion excellent, knowledgeable and very personable was not bored on this tour.

Honolulu, Oahu

4 out of 5
We did the full day tour of Pearl Harbor and city tour, it was well worth the money. Again this was a small group, the company served us a wonderful lunch in the Pacific Aviation museum. Visiting the USS Missouri was impressive.

Nawiliwili, Kauai

4 out of 5
We hired a private driver and toured the island. This island is less crowded and not as many tourists. The waterfalls are beautiful.

Lahaina, Maui

2 out of 5
Booked a terrible excursion! Do not book the Road to Hana!!! You will spend all day on a tour bus and only get to experience this island thru a bus window!

Waited for our turn to disembark got off ship found our luggage. It was a little crazy getting our luggage as it was crowded but were able to locate our bags. Went to the taxi line and was given a taxi on the spot. We were one of the last groups to disembark.
