Sail Date: December 2007
Destination: Hawaii
Embarkation: Honolulu
LETs just say the crew used English words not from the dictionary. Yea okay, hows it going, like like. NO MANNERS. Most of the crew was not polite, not trained, rude, and not educated. It was really a bad experience. The Food was really Cheap. You could say it compared to waffle house or big boys, and IHOP. The service was terrible. Don't expect a refill. The only beverages for free was Coffee (cheap) and tasteless ice tea, water that smelled musty most of the time. If you ordered anything other then basic, hold on to your seat, it was not really what they said it would be. I am not sure why I had stomach aches every day but I did. The wine selection was cheap. The only way to save yourself is to eat everynight in the speciality restaurants. It is an added expense. You also have to remember gratuity it included as a 20.00 charge every day per person. Lets tip the horrible service.. This crew has no incentive to work for. The tips are put in a pot and split. Oh yes remember you dine More with the crew, and do the tenders and transportation with the crew also. The Spa was terrible small, no Yoga or exercise classes. They could not hire anyone. There is a small hot and dry sauna room. Girls and boys split. No spa hot tub. No spa hot chairs. The service was really CHEAP. I think it was like getting new very new students to do the work. Really a waste of money. Buy the oil and slap it on then wrap yourself in a emergency blanket for 15minutes. The facial was light touch, cold and really CHEAP but they charged 119.00. No nice music, the therapist want a bee talked the whole time. A Spa nightmare. The Room we even stayed in was a suite AA, one step down from the owners suite. It was nice but old and worn out furniture. The sheer curtains were coming off the rod and had been sewed together on the bottom areas where they looked like they were repaired. When we checked in the tub had non slip strips that were black with horrible dirt under them. I was lucky they were peeling off so I could see the nasty conditions. There was mildew in the bathroom also. I am glad I brought a disinfectant spray. Hand prints were everywhere in the room. The sheets were changed once in 11 nights.. Only after I complained. The towels had holes in them. Don't use the laundry service it is cheaper to buy cheap t-shirts new. Of course the dress was Hawaiian casual. T-shirts and shorts. If you are looking for anything elegant, polite, up-scale you wont find it on this cruise. The gift shop was like K-mart, mostly cheap trinkets. The jewelry was not good, and the selection poor. Unless you like CZ's. Okay the smell in the AFT section area was terrible horrible and took your appetite away. We stayed next to a nice couple and the husband was a retired longshoreman. He had plenty to say. This cruse line had broken several laws. I read the cruise critic too late and went on this trip anyway. If I had anything to suggest CANCEL and take the hit of 10%. It is a OLD VERY OLD Motel ^6 floating on water, with bad food, bad service, dirty carpets, worn out furniture. If you booked an inside room I really feel bad for you. SMALL/.... the balcony was really SMALL almost every room was tiny. Don't do any shore excursions. They are over priced. Just rent a car it is really easy and explore the islands on your own. You can't get lost on an island that only has 1 or 2 main roads. NCL = No Class LINE. Less
