Overall it was a good honeymoon. We are mid 20's and this was our first cruise. We had little expectations since this was the case. Getting on and off the ship was easy and very simple. We enjoyed the freestyle eating options and learned quick to make reservations for the places we wanted to visit asap. We didnt however like the excursions that we paid top dollar for. We went on the "sunset" cruise in maui. I highly reccomment skipping this because it was the same view as from the cruise ship. The ad makes it sound like a nice sailing trip on a cattermaran with drinks and snacks. It ended up being a 1.5 hr cruise on a sub- par power boat with cheap drinks, deli - like snacks.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
The few members that were not happy to be there put a damper on things. Also- we were given a $200 credit for our wedding that was set up by our family member. They intended to let us use it as we wished. When we went to use it , the concierge told us that it had to only be used in the spa. We attempted to talk to the manager but the rep said this was the policy and nothing else would change it.
