Review Summary

Service was excellent, better than other cruise lines we've been on. Food was very good, nice variety. My husband liked the ice cream bar every afternoon. Entertainment was lacking, but didn't bother us too much since we were dealing with medical issues ourselves and were happy to sit and read most of the day. Mostly an older crowd, so young active people would have been bored. We renewed our wedding vows (after 30 years) and they did an excellent job arranging that. The captain was friendly.

Ports Of Call

Lahaina, Maui

5 out of 5
They were doing road work, so leaving town was not recommended (by rental car). They have alot of great stores all along the main road we enjoyed. Last time we were there we rented a car and drove along the Hana Road. It's gorgeous!! Highly recommend that.
Don't Miss: Drive along Hana Road if you can.

Honolulu, Oahu

5 out of 5
We rented a car & drove around the island, really enjoyed it. Visited the dole pineapple factory which was nice, saw the north shore and people surfing and enjoyed the sun up there. It rained in Honolulu both days we were in port. The cultural center was to expensive to visit for just 1-2 hours that we had available.
Don't Miss: Hilo Hattie store, which is on every island, if you want souvenirs.

We went to see the volcano, it was a nice excursion, but we'd seen it once before.
