The rooms were slightly nicer than average which is good.  The crew went out of their way!  Crystal, a cruise director was incredible at always telling us what's next and making us feel important.  Ethan was a great entertainer!  The shows were INCREDIBLE!  Hollywood, The Four Seasons, Broadway reviews all great.  Make it a point to buy ultimate dining and experience Tepinyaki, Cagneys for Steak and the Bistro for a genuine fantastic French experience.  I would recommend a few shore excursions, but take a day or two to enjoy sunning and working out on the ship or just simple shore excursions such as beaching and/or snorkeling or you'll truly tire of busses.  My favorite time was sailing past the Napoli Coast, beautiful from our balcony!  By the way, loved the $19.99 per bag laundry special towards the end.  It comes in handy when your running low on clothes!  Bought fantastic swimsuits and T-shirts in Kai Gift Shop for incredible prices.  Emma, you were a great cocktail waitress on the deck.  Ethan, you were wonderful as Willie Wonka and in the Broadway review.  Thank you everyone on board for making our experience so wonderful.

Restaurants, Cagneys, Tepenyaki (entertainment by Chris the Chef!), John at Bistro (our waiter) and the incredible shrimp cocktail, lettuce wedge and perfect filet mignon. Also, a birthday and anniversary cake along with a bottle of wine from Kyle at customer Services for our 10th Anniversary!

Ship Quality

Better than average. The restaurants were mind blowing. Enjoyed Skyline's NY decor and the stairwell pictures of parts of the United States.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Bigger than average, and our housekeeper worked with us VERY well with some exceptional circumstances. I would suggest, if you can, to spend a little more for the small suites. I went in one and WOW! Huge difference for the few extra $$. A balcony while not required, is WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!

Ship Tip

Book restaurants ASAP, especially Cagneys, the Bistro and Tepenyaki. Also, try Skyline, it's quite an experience. Daniel is a great waiter in Cadillac who helped us hurry and got us little to go roll packages for our excursions when we didn't have time to eat. Thanks!

Honolulu, Oahu Did not visit port

Stay on at Royal Hawaiian for swimming and relaxation and a view of Diamond Head
