Review summary

It was one of the most beautiful cruises we have ever been on. We don't normally purchase the Suite but did so this time because it was our 40th Anniversary. However I must say I think I'm spoiled now! Had a trip of a lifetime with memories that will last forever.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Wonderful! we were VIP staying in a Suite and received a swift easy embarkation.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
We tried pretty much all the Restaurants and had wonderful experiences in them all except the Moderno. Unfortunately we chose Moderno for our anniversary night and it was terrible, the service was not good, had to ask for a condiment several times before receiving it and they just didn't seem interested in making our experience a good one. Cagneys, LaCucina were the best but (East meets West (Teppanyaki) was the best! Liberty far surpassed Skyline and Aloha Cafe was OK for when you want food anytime however would not suggest for a nice dinner.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
The pools were always clean and Adult pool was a peaceful area. The fitness center and Spa were very accommodating for all my needs.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
fun & entertaining shows for the whole family. I do wish they had had an authentic Hawaiian show in the the Theater one of the nights.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Except for the Moderno Churrascaria restaurant the service was exceptional! The Bartender (Seth) at the Key West Bar always was smiling, working hard and fast to keep everyone happy and excellent drinks in their hands. GREAT Bartender!

Ship tip

Pre-plan your excursions for the best experience of each island.

Ports of call

Honolulu, Oahu

5 out of 5
we stayed a few days before the cruise to be able to tour this island.

Kahului, Maui

5 out of 5
The Port is nothing to see, just a shipping port. Would have preferred better views. We rented a car and toured the island on our own the first day, Had a fantastic day. second day we had a helicopter tour but was canceled due to wind so came back to the ship and had a spa day.

Hilo, Hawaii

5 out of 5
The port is just ok. Our view of a ship yard was disappointing. Had a Tour (The Ultimate Hilo Coast)

Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
