Review summary

Just being in Hawaii was great. Since they shorted us a day, they didn't handle that extra day off well at all. Food was very bland and no good entertainment/activities. Don't bother filling out the luggage tag they send you, because they don't use them. Also the paperwork tells you to bring a "white outfit" for a night. Don't bother, there's no such thing. Cruise director was not very good as was her staff. Just went on this cruise for the convenience of hitting several islands.

Got there early, so lines weren't long. Don't bother printing and filling out the luggage tags they send you, because they don't use them.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
Same exact breakfast choices every day in the buffet. Everything was very bland tasting. Regular dining room was OK, but don't count on a steak or lobster night like the other cruises offer.

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
Not many activities offered.

Shows were second and third rated. Same performers for each show. Magician was terrible. Only the comedian was good.

Service and Staff

You spend an overnight here and there's nothing to do directly off the ship. You have to take a cab or bus to go anywhere. Wish we would've stayed overnight at a different port.

NCL shorted us one day of cruise due to ship having to be repaired. So.... they put us up at a hotel. Hotel was great, but we arrived at the hotel at 9:00, didn't get our room until 12:15 and didn't get our luggage til 5:15. We couldn't even go out and get an sun due to no luggage. Wasted day. : (
