Review summary

Busy cruise with a port every day. It is a great way to see each of the larger islands so you can determine which one to visit again. Or if you don’t think you will get there again, good way to hit all the major sites.

Easy to board. Greeted with leis. While we were waiting they had a group play music and dance- time seemed to fly.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was good in main dining rooms. We did feel that the menus were limited and seemed to push towards specialty restaurants. The Aloha Cafe - buffet was fabulous for breakfasts and lunches. One issue, we have a nut allergy and he ordered what was labeled as chicken and mozzarella; well it also had pesto. Luckily he noticed after a small bite. They need to give better descriptions.

Onboard Activities

Pool was nice - crowded when at sea.

We skipped the stage shows, the comedian and magician were a lot of fun. As were the game shows.

Service and Staff

The Hawaii staff gets a tough rap. Almost to the person staff was friendly and attentive.

Ship Quality
