A decent experience

Sail Date: July 30, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Food was fair in the buffet. We only ate in the dining room once and it was good, but not great. Our stateroom with the balcony was great. Plenty of room and the housekeeping staff did a pretty good job. The ship was reasonably well maintained and most of the crew were very helpful (with a couple of exceptions). This is a great way to see Hawaii if you have never been before.

Pros: Seeing all of the major islands

Cons: Not as nice as some other ships; automatic service charges are stupid

Ship Quality
Should have booked on the new ship.
Food and Dining
Not really great food but the buffet had good variety.
Cabin / Stateroom
Get the balcony. You will not regret it.
Service and Staff
The attention to service was above average, but not excellent.
We were ashore most of the time, so we did not do much on the ship but sleep.
Nawiliwili, Kauai
It was pouring at the port, but when we got on the tour and away from the port the weather was better.
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
Had a great tour of historic Kona.
Don't Miss: Kona coffee
Hilo, Hawaii
Wife was not feeling well that day, so we stayed onboard.
Kahului, Maui
So much to do, so little time!
Don't Miss: Swimming with the turtles.
