Review SummaryThe ship left on Sunday. Because of weather delays we joined the ship Wednesday am in Hilo. The cruiseline did nothing. They said work with the airline. United up-graded us to First Class. Because we missed the embarkation, we didn't get greeted, lei'd, or the photo op. It was just like any other port, getting on the ship, only we had to take our own bags up to Reception desk to check in. Very disappointing, seeing that we were handling our delay respectively, no drama, no blame, just happy to be there finally. But we got the "whipped dog treatment"; they sculked off in shame when we said we were just checking in. Then they gave us someone else's shipcards.
The only compensation we got was for the 3 days of quarrantine - $200. [Thats $100 per person per 24-hr day in quarrantine.] Only one qualified as 24-hr: day 2 was 3 hrs shy; day 3 WAS 24-hrs, but the accounts were closed at 2am for debarkation. Wed from 6pm-Fri 3pm; Sat. 8:30am - Sun. debarkation.
