Cabin service => A+ Food in MDR => B Pizza on deck 12 => B Grill on deck 12 => A Buffet => C Cabin => D Cabin was a disappointing experience, only sitting area in an upgraded balcony cabin was a small desk chair. We put a balcony chair in the cabin, not sure what happen to a love seat, or at minimum a comfortable chair. Buffet was average, with stand standard food. We tries to go to the DR often and generally the food was better. Internet service was below par. Ports were good, but not able to comment on excursions since we rented a car and did our own agenda each location. Not sure we would make the trip across the Pacific Ocean again via cruise ship. Next trip to the Hawaiian islands will likely be via airplane. I’m still in shock a “premium balcony” doesn’t include a decent sitting area. Read Less

We've been on this cruise many times. So all was as expected. There are many sea days filled with activities or just relaxing. Loved the lectures about Hawaii...culture/history/natural wonders...what to see and food. Loved the hula and ukulele lessons, and all the Hawaiian crafts and music. Food was as always consistently good. Effy was giving out charms if you attended some of their workshops. These cute charms are great to give to grand daughters. Amazing to see the mass of women wanting these inexpensive freebies (and I was one of them :)). British Invasion singers were excellent. The Voice of the Ocean was funny and fun. We were surprised by the very talented contestants. Already taken many tours in past trips so this time we did the following local things... Hilo:Took free Farmers' Market bus took us to their local farmers' market and crafts' market downtown. Ate delicious Ono fish at a local restaurant. Shopped for inexpensive Hawaiian candy/cookies and coffee at local grocery store. Took taxi back from bus stop...$5 each for car load. Honolulu:Took bus (with Medicare card only $1) to Waikiki beach near zoo, visited best place for inexpensive trinkets/souvenirs...Duke's Marketplace, and walked all the way to end of Hawaiian Village Shopping (ate in food court) center. Took bus to Ala Mona shopping center. Thought it was too big and commercial so took bus back to ship. Arrived in time to see ship's visiting Hawaiian show. Mau,Lahaina: Walked all of Front Street (full of beach/ocean views, cute shops and cafes) to outlet shopping mall. Took local bus to Konopoli ($1 for senior). Walked beautiful beach. Had delicious Hawaiian lunch plate at Whaler's food court.Then took a taxi($17 or $5 per person if 4 or more) back to tender area. Kuai, Nawiliwili: Took free bus to tiny local shops/restaurants nearby (Also in walking distance.). Walked the nearby beach and grounds (otanical garden with koi pond) of Marriott Resort. Ate at Duke's. Took a free shuttle to Walmart to buy macadamia nut products and 100% Kona coffee. Read Less

We flew from London and stayed 2 nights pre-cruise in San Francisco. As Elite members check in was quick and easy and we were on board within 20 minutes. The outside of the ship was rusty in places but inside the ship was fantastic. Our balcony cabin was lovely but had no footrest on the balcony or a cabin kettle.Our cabin steward got us a footrest but couldn't get a kettle. Our Elite mini bar set up was very welcome. We had Any time dining and the first 5 nights we dined in the Michaelangelo restaurant on deck 5 and as we wanted a table for 2 we were given a buzzer to wait for a table. The other 10 nights we dined in DaVinci restaurant which was anytime dining after 7.15pm and we were shown to a table immediately. After 4 sea days we arrived at a wet Hilo. Next day we were in Oahu and took a tour to Pearl Harbor. Next day in Kauai we did a fantastic movies tour. Next day was maui where we got a tender and being Elite we met the loyalty rep in Michaelangelo restaurant and give Priority tender tickets. We then had 4 sea days before reaching Ensenada in Mexico. Another sea day later we were back in San Francisco. The food and service was fantastic in every venue. After a quick walk off disembarkation carrying our own cases we quickly got a taxi to take us to a hotel where we had a day room booked so we could explore more of San Francisco. Read Less
