Review summary

A great way to see the 4 largest of the Hawaiian islands, but make sure that you add a stay in Honolulu before or after the cruise, as there is so much to see, and do, that will add to the experience. We were very fortunate that the Hawaii Volcano Park had reopened 2 days before we arrived at Hilo, so we got to see the huge hole that is now the empty caldera.

Very efficient. One of the shortest queues ever.

Amy in the cocktail was a star. She makes the best Espresso Martinis!

Pink's Champagne Bar

5 out of 5

The girls behind the bar were great, and Amy was the star. She has got us hooked on Espresso Martinis, and she definitely is the best at making them.A reasonably quiet location, where it’s quite easy to get a seat, and the music is good and not too loud.

Liberty Main Dining Room

5 out of 5

Quieter and a bit more intimate than the Skyline restaurant downstairs, and often no queue when diners were waiting downstairs!

Hardly saw the cabin boy, but he must have been around as we got all the usual services, including the towel animals.

Ship Quality

Starting to look a bit dated but well cleaned. We regularly met the guy vaccing the stairs!

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
More spacious than we expected, and very convenient for dining rooms and atrium.

Ship tip

Check the deck plans for ocean view cabins that are situated in gaps between the lifeboats. You get great views at the best prices.
