Destination: Hawaii
Embarkation: Los Angeles
First I would like to say the staff are very good. The staff on Pursers desk were always friendly and pleasant. The person cleaning our cabin was very good. There is lots going on daily. The big screen was great except they showed mostly all old movies. Enjoyed the pools and water games. Nice loungers to tan on. Food was good. The prices in duty free shop not great. Took advantage of ordering bottle of alcohol thru room service. As said entertainment was ok but shut down early.
We went on 2 excursions. We did the Beach Snorkel in Kauai and it was fantastic. We got some great pics. We also booked the Hawaiian Luau & Polynesian Cultural Center trip and we would NOT recommend this excursion to anyone. They do not give you all the important info on this trip till u arrive.
There is NO alcohol served as would normally be at a luau. So no Hawaiian drinks to try. Put on by the Mormons. It takes the whole day in Honolulu so u see nothing else. NO picture taking at the Luau. More Everything is sell,sell,sell. U walk around in the heat all afternoon. $3 for small bottle of water.
Luau is held in a stadium. Depending on where your seat depends on high up u sit. It was like an amusement park w/o the rides VERY DISSAPPOINTED in this excursion. We tried to do shopping before we left for the excursion but they could not guarantee we would be back in time to go. Found the cruise was great except for 2 much sea time and need longer times in port visits. Dining room service was very good. Will go on another Princess Cruise, but not this one again. 2nd time to Hawaii. Less
