Review summary

Overall the cruise was average. First the good things - the ship is new and has all modern features. The port itineary was very good leaving sufficient time on all ports. The service was pathetic. It seemed the staff did not care. While there was no rudeness or mistreatment - it was clearly different from other cruises we have experienced. There was no midinight buffet or special events. The food was ok. The entertainment was horrific. They had a magician (doing same tricks on 2 different occassions), a comedian (for 2 days) and dance show. There were hardly anything cultural about Hawaii and everything costs money including speciality restaurants. The shore excursions are mind numbingly expensive when Roberts Hawaii does it for half the price.

Ports of call

Nawiliwili, Kauai

Beach is ok, the river tour with fern grotto was a let down

Hilo, Hawaii

3 out of 5
National volcanoes - rainbow falls was let down. Remember - in Hawaii ports there is nothing - plan in advance. Even getting a taxi can costs a lot of money and there are no shuttles to tourist attractions
Don't Miss: volcanoes

Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
