"A pleasant experience"

Sail Date: September 01, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Very clean, staff although not your typical european "demeanor" - contrary to our prior knowledge we found them very accomodating and pleasant. We went on cruise with the mindset looking at the ship as a "floating hotel" and very pleased it was more than that. Although the crew was primarily within their first 5 weeks of new contracts, perhaps their training has improved. As described to us by the one of the officers, they are welcoming us to their "home". Of course with any cruise there will always be a few that do not meet your expectations, but overall better than expected. I do not recommend Hilo "The Secrets of Puna" excursion, not worth the cost. Also in Kauhi confirm the helicopter fuel issues have been cleared up prior to booking.

Pros: Free style dining

Cons: Balcony cabin size bathroom shower

Food and Dining
No issue with the speciality dining reservations, however we found the food and service to be very competitve with the free styling dining and not an added bonus for the additional expense.
Cabin / Stateroom
Only drawback was size of shower, very small compared to other ships.
Service and Staff
Very out going and welcoming
Ship Quality
