Sail Date: Apr 2015
Cabin:

We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the total of 9 sea days. Lots of activities to keep us busy. We especially enjoyed the two lecture presenters who talked about a wide variety of things including the Hawaii ports, Ensenada, history of Pacific Ocean planes and ships, Route 66, the Eiffel Tower, volcanoes, the Panama Canal, etc.

We've been to Hawaii many times but there's always something new to do. Excursion highlights of this trip included tubing in Kauai, the Aviation Museum at Pearl Harbor (on our own), swimming with spinner dolphins in Hana on the big island, and a four-wheel drive tour on Lanai.

This was our 32nd cruise and 9th on Princess. Our only disappointments were the wait times for anytime dining, the waiters' inattentiveness to non-alcoholic drink requests, and the necessity of arriving at least 45 minutes early to get a seat in the theater for evening shows.

We were upgraded two days before departure from a balcony and thoroughly enjoyed this room, especially since we had so many sea days.
