Marginal At Best

Sail Date: July 23, 2016

Reviewed: 10 months ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

The State of Hawaii is beautiful, but the cruise was marginal. Guests were prohibited from bringing water onboard, yet no water was accessible from the staterooms. This caused guests to go hunting for potable water at every turn- often carting small cups of water from the buffets at all hours in order to have a bedside drink. In addition, there was a terrible odor throughout the Champagne Lounge- it smelled of raw sewage. Finally, the lack of evening activities onboard the ship made for a boring trip and very early nights. I would not recommend this cruise to anyone.

Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Loved the décor, but the smells were terrible... In addition to the odor in the Champagne Lounge, the toilet odor in the cabins was sickening.
Destinations and Excursions
The luau was the best part of this trip.
Onboard Activities
Activities seemed to be scheduled during the day when most guests were off the ship. Evenings were quite boring.
The shows were terrible and amateur.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining


There is no adults-only area, so if you are looking for peace and quiet, avoid this cruise. Also, pay the $10 to be able to text through the app. Relying on notes and telephones was aggravating. Buying one account for each cabin is sufficient.
