A Great Honeymoon!!

Sail Date: October 30, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The ship itself was very nice, however certain things were stil not working (being it's first year) such as beer and soda taps.
The crew seemed to be lacking on service and hospitality. In the middle of the week the buffet service went from helping yourself, to having staff dish out your food for you. Very confusing for both staff and guests. Food portions in the dining rooms were on the small side, although everything I had was very tasty and well presented. My husband was definitely not full on one entree.
We enjoyed the many open/public areas on the ship and the nightly entertainment was good and highly amusing.
Overall the shore excursions and ability to move around the Hawaii islands without having to spend many hours in the airport was the draw for us and didn't fail. The cruising opportunities (past the lava flow on Hawaii and the Na Pali coast on Kaui) were beautiful and well executed.

Pros: All the different shore excursions

Cons: Customer Service on boat was lacking

Went on the hiking/nature tour in Volcano Park. A little on the pricy side, but worth the money. Only 10 people were in our group, and the guide was extremely knowledgable about the whole park and island.
Nawiliwili, Kauai

Don't Miss: Make sure to hit the beach behind the Anchor Cove shopping mall in town!
Kahului, Maui
visited but rained most of the time we were there, so don't have good recommendations.
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
Captain Zodiac's rafting and snorkeling adventure was great! Again a smaller tour group with great snorkeling!
