Very good experience

Sail Date: September 28, 2013

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

This was my first cruise and it met all of my expectations; it was relaxing, entertaining and comfortable.  The staff was courteous, the entertainment was outstanding, the food was very good and the excursions were interesting (if pricey).  As a single passenger, I enjoyed meeting many people, and found that the dinner seating and excursions promoted that.  My room was clean and my steward very accommodating.  The boat felt safe, and I appreciated the measures taken to prevent ship-board illnesses, like offering hand sanitizers all over the ship and as you entered many of the dining venues.


My only concern was that the ship shows that it has been in use constantly since its launching.  Nothing major was amiss, but there were many cosmetic issues in my stateroom that should have been taken care of and there was rust on many metal surfaces on the outside of the ship.


Ship Quality
The ship needs to be refurbished in the cabins and rust attended to.
Food and Dining
Good variety and always available.
Cabin / Stateroom
Some cosmetic repairs needed, but otherwise comfortable
Service and Staff
Very nice, friendly staff.
Enjoyed everything I went to.
Onboard Activities
Wish I had had more time to experience more!
Destinations and Excursions
Destinations were very good, but pricey.
Honolulu, Oahu
Didn't sightsee here.
Kahului, Maui
Spent the 2nd day on board, relaxing.
Hilo, Hawaii
Fantastic Botanical Gardens.
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
Nice dives, looks like a nice town.
Nawiliwili, Kauai
Spent the day relaxing on board.


Get to know all the dining venues and when they are open. There is always something available, but you need to know when things open and close.
