Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We did sit down 5pm with three other couples. Great food every night. Our steward was very attentive to our requests.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Most people are over 50 so no rock climbing but the activities were based around Hawaii. I loved them.


4 out of 5
Night shows were great. Daytime movies under the stars were more for kids.

Children's Programs

No kids with us

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Everyone was extremely helpful and happy to see us.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Grand is old so it showed signs of wear. That did not stop the fun.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
A515 was comfortable but overhead noise from furniture being moved was a problem. We voiced our difficulty and it was handled.

Ship tip

Don’t over pack. We challenged ourselves to only have carry on for a 15 day cruise. Did it and were very happy. Washed mid cruise. It was so worth it.

Ports of call

San Francisco, California Did not visit port

Arrival and departure only.

Hilo, Hawaii

5 out of 5
Swam with dolphins in the wild. Awesome

Honolulu, Oahu

4 out of 5
Pearl Harbor-what we expected. Germaine’s luau was too commercial. I’d try another one if I go back.

Nawiliwili, Kauai

5 out of 5
Discover Kauai. Great but the wildlife preserve was closed on Sunday.

Lahaina, Maui

5 out of 5
Helicopter tour. Once in a lifetime views. Amazing.

Ensenada, Mexico

3 out of 5
Guadalupe Valley winery tours. Winery was fun but the tour guide was very inexperienced.
