wheel chairs and scooters rule the day, and they don't give a crap about your toes. otherwise this is a favorite ship of ours and it has a great captain and crew. The ride was like bathwater smooth, the food and wait staff top notch along with the shows and Lokelina and her husband Kimo  gave he ship a real island feel by teaching the Hula and Ukulele to the cruisers and then having the put on a great show. The voice show was from hunger as was one of the so called comediennes.  Steve White was really funny but some of the people didn't appreciate him using them for humor. Ha he was a refreshing voice in this PC world and had us laughing at ourselves as well as everyone else. The ship is clean and the new beds are comfortable. The Crown Grill is cheap and a don't miss. The Crab feast Ditto. Shares is a flop, sorry. The biggest complaint we have is the Promenade isn't a flat walk, you either have to go up and down ALOT of stairs or horseshoe it. In addition to that you have  the rude, slow, fast, and roadhogs that crowd the deck, or the smell of painting. But must of the ships are like that way now.

The passage was windy but 75% of the journey was sunny.

We enjoyed this cruise and the ports of call. Beware that not all tours fill and they will change times without too much notice. The slots were tight but did pay out now and then. We liked the three formal dinners and the early seating which allowed us to see the early show. The late shows were almost empty due to age of viewers probably being a sleep.

Getting on and off was a pleasure.

Overall if you like a peaceful cruise with a few events to keep you busy this is a good cruise for you.Happy
