This hands down was the greatest vacation I have taken. It was our 6th cruise and we have stayed at all inclusive resorts and other vacations as well. Definitely the best way to see the Hawaiian islands. You hit Oahu, Maui, Hilo, Kona, and Kauai all during the cruise with no days at sea. We did three port excursions which were fun (molokini crater snorkel, volcanoes national park tour, and Pearl Harbor tour after the cruise). We rented a car which was very easy to do with discount Hawaiian rental.com. Everywhere except for Oahu there was a free shuttle to take you to the car rental. The rentals were not priced too high averaging about $35 a day. We toured majority all of the islands except for Hilo this way. So many beautiful sights to see and do. We went to a coffee farm, Kona brewery, and snorkeling at the Kahalulu beach for pretty cheap. The ship was nice. I have been on carnival, Royal, and Disney and it was still a good ship. Nice and clean. They were putting down new carpet the week we were there. Compared to other ships within Norwegian its small but you aren't on the ship often. We got the specialty dining package as a promotion and the restaurants were great. The only issue is don't expect the same fine dining service you may encounter at fine dining restaurants. They were a little more lax on the ship from a service side. Our stateroom host was wonderful and always available for anything we needed. Definitely partake in the pub crawl/beer tastings on the ship if you like alcohol. Starts the cruise off right

Cabin Review

Obstructed Oceanview
Cabin OK 7556
It was nice. There was a small boat that obstructed part of our view but definitely worked for the week!
