ok here goes this was our 7th cruise so we are not novices. I had read all the pros and cons about this ship. Expected a seagoing bus that would take us from island to island not so. We were pleasantly surprised they are working out the bugs. The ship was clean. Getting on was easy we went directly to our cabin inside cat j, smaller than carnival but very serviceable. Do not expect the turn down or chocolates on the pillow. Cabin was cleaned daily and we had plenty of fresh towels. Food ok the main dining rooms were ok but slow, the small speciality restaurants were worth every penny the food and service were excellent. We ate at all 3 and liked each one. The shore excursions were very good pricey bot run well. The ship passing the volcano at night is not to be missed. All and all a good cruise a great way to see Hawaii.
