We had very low expectations after reading negative reviews, and found the cruise surprisingly good. We thought the ship was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the staff was friendly. It was an added plus that all crew and staff spoke English. The spa is the most pristine, restful place on the ship and the staff is very considerate. The Broadway Show was excellent and our audience gave the performers a standing ovation. Butch Sullivan is a super- talented Hawaiian singer and he added much to our enjoyment at dinner. The views of the islands as you arrive and leave port are amazing, and Kauai in particular was breathtaking--especially the NaPali Coast. This cruise is great for Hawaii residents because you can visit all major islands, without the hassle of air travel, while enjoying beautiful views and good food as you go. We loved it all and would love to do it again!

Food and Dining

Food was very good; we ate late every night, so never had a problem with dinner reservations.

Ship Quality

The Spa is an incredible area of the ship. The lounge on the top deck is perfect for watching port arrivals.

Cabin / Stateroom

We had an inside cabin and it was cozy, the duvet was so clean and comfortable, and it was a great room to sleep in.

Pros: spa, food, ports, hand-cleansing system, Broadway show

Cons: liked it all!
