Good value if you can tolerate the short cuts

Overall, the cruise is a very efficient way to see the islands. The value of only unpacking once was worth a lot me us.
The meals on the ship exceeded my expectations. We paid for premium resturant options twice on the cruise and thought it was worth the money each time.
The biggest disappointment was the overall cleanliness of the ship. It only stands to reason that four hours between cruises is not enough time to give the ship a deep cleaning. The carpets were always dirty throughout the ship, especailly the staircases. There was a thick layer of dust on the top of our bedroom cabnetry. We had one maintenance issue (slow shower drain) that was quickly repaired.
Overall, it was an acceptable amount of disappointment verus the value and ease of travel.
