An "All-American" Cruise First

Sail Date: April 23, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We never met a ship we didn't love and, as we heard on this cruise, "There's no such thing as a bad cruise; some are just better than others." Given the challenges of a prop failure, water line breaking, toilets and keys not working, we still enjoyed our 12 night ADVENTURE - after all, we only paid for 10! It was certainly a cruise to remember tho' I'm sure NCLA will spend plenty trying to help people forget. Most disappointing was our first encounter with an all-American crew.

Pros: Open Seating Dining

Cons: Service from the American crew

Nawiliwili, Kauai
Beautiful Island - Easy access to rental cars at airport. A lot of time to explore a great deal of the island on your own.
Don't Miss: Waimea
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
Lovely little town - didn't get very far away. Tender service seemed unecessarily tedious. Long waits on tenders while crew waited to fill them up.
Hilo, Hawaii
Another beautiful island. Again, easy rental car arrangements if you prefer doing the driving yourself.
Don't Miss: Volcano park is great, but don't expect to see lava up close and personal. Be sure and catch the lava

Kahului, Maui
Need to get out of Kahului, but... Maui, too, has many wonderful places to see. The need for a car to get out of town reduces the attractiveness of this port. If you don't leave Kahului the ALE HOUSE is nearby; it's the crew's favorite local watering hole. Sports bar - good food, etc.
