The cruise was the only way to really see the islands. Fly in, have the ship take you to the 4 largest islands and then fly home. I am not sure if it was because of the holidays but most of the crew members in the dining halls and reservation desk could of had better attitudes. We heard several comments from the staff in open areas that should of been kept to themselves or behind closed doors. The inclusive food was terrible, no flavor, no selection. The Ultimate dining had some nicer plates but to pay and additional $30 per person just to eat there per meal becomes price prohibitive for the average JOE. We did the steakhouse which was really good and then the teppanyaki place was very good as well.

The housekeeping staff and entertainment staff were outstanding, live music pool side in the afternoons and the shows were really good as well.

Housekeeping was great, room was always perfect.

Ship Tip

Change up the menu and make sure you add flavor. A little salt and pepper on the steaks would go a long way. Very disappointed in the taste of the food.
