Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The food was good. We ate most of our meals in the buffet. It was quicker and easier because of our tour schedule to just go upstairs to the buffet. We had dinner at the main dining rooms and it took along time to get our food. The east meet west restaurant was just okay. After dinner we went upstairs to the buffet because we were still hungry. We also tried the Cadallic grill. The service and food was okay. I had a padilla and I did not like it. We were not even offered dessert.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
The staff were friendly and they would chat with you if you asked them a question. Our room staff we only saw her the first day. We were gone almost everyday so she made the bed while we were gone. She only came in the room once a day. We had towel animals every day except the first and last night.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
It was well maintained. I thought we would see the staff working on the ship while docked in the ports. Our balcony area had several rust spots and the balcony railing needed to be varnished.

Ports of call

Honolulu, Oahu

5 out of 5
We were there 2 days before our cruise. We did a circle tour and to the Polynesian Cultural Center. We enjoyed the PCC. The day off the cruise we went to Pearl Harbor. It was a very moving experience to visit there. I thought Honolulu, was too busy and commercialized.

Kahului, Maui

5 out of 5
We went on the excursion of Road to Hana. We used Valley Isle for the excursion. It was really pretty and our guide was very knowledgeable. The next day we went on the Best of Maui with Roberts tours. We went to the Iao Needle, Tropical Plantation and the Maui Aquarium. Had a great day.

Hilo, Hawaii

5 out of 5
We visited Volcano National Park. We saw lava coming up from a crater a mile away. The rainbow falls were really pretty.

Kailua-Kona, Hawaii

5 out of 5
We went on the Historic Kona tour with Roberts. We visited Puuhonua National Park, The Painted Church, and the Kona Coffee factory.

Nawiliwili, Kauai

5 out of 5
We went to Waimea Canyon and Grotto Fern. Because of the rain and cloudys we couldn't see the canyon colors. We enjoyed the Grotto Fern grove. It started raining so they had the Hawaiian music and dancing on the boat.
