Review summary

We chose this cruise for the itinerary not expecting the best of anything from the ship according to reviews we had read, but we had no complaints and we’re very pleasantly surprised and enjoyed everything. I felt Norwegian really stepped up their game on this cruise, and we will consider Norwegian now in the future. We liked and enjoyed the ship very much. This is definitely the best way to experience Hawaii.

Cabin / Stateroom

We thought the room was much smaller than ships we have been on,our room was very clean and our cabin Stewart did a fantastic job! He was very attentive and did a great job with the towel animals and everything that we needed. We were very excited to see there was a coffee maker in the room.
