Review summary

We had an unbelievable experience, but it was your staff that made it that way, in comparison to your ship and ports. You need to consider renovating the ship, fairness in beverage and excursion pricing, and the 20% gratuity on everything. We want to tip the workers, but you charge us too much for everything, so the best part of the cruise, the workers, are uncertainly compensated by us. Also, 36 hours on the Big Island. Pick a port but we didn't have time to explore like Kauai or Maui. E

Butler, Housekeeper, and others were really nice. This is what you should be proud of.

Kahului, Maui

All rental car companies need access. Too long of a walk for many and some of us don't care about excursions as we like to drive the island. Keep us in mind.

Hilo, Hawaii

3 out of 5
36 hours in Hilo or Maui for Island explorers.

Kailua-Kona, Hawaii

3 out of 5
36 hours in Hilo or Maui for Island explorers.

Nawiliwili, Kauai

Good location for all.
