Happy times in Hawaii

Sail Date: November 2013
Destination: Hawaii
Embarkation: San Diego

Stayed overnight at Wyndham Bayside both coming and going due to schedule issues with Air Canada.

Nice hotel. You can see the boat in the harbor if you have the right room. It is just across the road.

Luggage being left and sorted in the parking lot beside the boat was a little disconcerting. Talked to some people on board who never got their luggage until we docked at the first port.

Hula lessons, ukulele lessons, history lessons and bracelet making was available from native Hawaiians on board. Wonderful country/rock singer Cliff entertained every evening in The Mix. Some of the entertainment in the Showroom at Sea was good but I find the ships own dancers etc. are becoming somewhat dated.

We went on Hilo excursion to Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park and Thurston Lava Tube.very good, lots to see. As expected the tour to the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor was very well done. Atlantis Submarine tour in Maui was very entertaining. Our stop at Ensenada was More forgettable,children begging on the side of the road.

Disembarkation went very smoothly. Less
