We have been on 20+ cruises on over 5 different cruise lines, so I consider myself a bit of a connoisseur. I have also been to Hawaii and lived there for a time, visiting most of the islands. However, my daughter, who is now 8, has never been. So this was her chance to get a taste of what Hawaii is all about. The boat is slightly smaller so it can get into the smaller ports. That means only one pool on board. But this cruise is meant for you to be getting out and taking shore excursions and seeing the sights. Speaking of which, I would recommend at least having a VERY good idea of which excursions you want before boarding if not booking them ahead of time. They fill up FAST!
The food on board is very good. Not just phenomenal, but very good. I would recommend trying the main dining room. It is every bit as good as the specialty restaurants.

Go to the main dining room for dinners, not just the specialty restaurants. The food there is AMAZING! This is a smaller ship, and it is out in the Pacific so the waters are a little rougher. I would advise anyone with motion sickness issue to invest in a scopalamine patch prior to departure.
