You can't change the weather!  We only had two days that were mostly sunny and I am saying this loosely on the ship.  Was it rainy season? I really do not know.  We thought it would be bright and sunny in Hawai'i but only one day out of the 4 ports we toured.  Very little rain but over overcast days. Talked to lots and lots of folks that take this cruise over and over again. But of course, they are from British Columbia and it is easy for them. No air fair. Would I take this cruise again? Well, maybe but out of San Francisco not Vancouver.  Never had meal problems as we like Anytime Dinning except we had to wait twice to be seated and another to wait as we do not like tables of 10.  Food was very good to serve this many folks.  Good choices most of the days.  What we liked was going to see the two National Parks which was on my "bucket list".  The staff on the ship were very friendly and the "Captain" was delightful. Never had such a entertaining and people person captain in the cruises we have been on.

Plenty of room. A better chair would be nice.

Enjoyed our trip to see the Mighty Mo and Pearl Harbor but did not have enough time to see the Might Mo. We were rushed on the Mighty Mo. Did not have tow wait in line to go into Pearl Harbor tho'. This was a nice benefit as when we went ourselves years ago we had a very long wait.


Any time dinning was the best. Met interesting folks and had decent food.
We take the kids snap light up bracelets and hook one on our bathroom door
to be able to see at night without turning on the bathroom light. Yes, we are folks that get up during the night.
