Review SummaryThis ship surprised me. If Hawaii wasn't so beautiful I would have hated my honeymoon. The free laundry is a plus. The housekeeping staff is the PITS. We had breakfast, went on excursions, shopped etc..at least 3-4 times and came back to a dirty room. I was FURIOUS. They don't have turn down service so you don't see them again until the next day. We bought our own Lysol and wiped down, straightened up ourselves.
The online room service and info was a plus. It saves you a phone call and a walk to info desk to be able to view it on TV. Limited programming on TV but movies were ok.
Food and Dining
The breakfast options were the best though on any ship I have been on.You also can get food easily 24 hours...limited-but something.
WARNING: If you are from the east coast...take a day or two before the cruise to get use to Hawaii time zones. They do not care that your body says it's 9 AM...for them its 3 AM and nothing happening...thank goodness I could find coffee. All of the East Coast people could be found wandering aimlessly around the ship. An "event" for them would be nice for the first day or so.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
On the day we left for the FIRST TIME Housekeeping was turning those rooms over like pancakes. It was shocking and I felt a bit pushed out of the door. ESPECIALLY since they hadn't moved this fast all week long.
Pros: FREE LAUNDRY
Cons: Rooms not clean by afternoon...except the last day of course
