The Ports were amazing. We really enjoyed each port. A lot of walking but well worth it. The ship itself is dated. It still has the old Hawaiian décor from when it was the old Pride of America. Besides that, the ship was good. Unlike the newer ships, there was not a lot of places that one could sit and just relax unless you wanted to sit at a bar. And as with other ships, there was a problem with people hogging the chairs around the pool. They came out early in the morning and left towels on the chairs for the whole day. The crew were great and very friendly. Was not impressed with the service charge for room service or the 18% gratuity on drinks and spa. It's normally 15%. Food was ok, nothing spectacular. Buffet was ok. We enjoyed the main dining room and found the meals much better there. Overall it was a great trip. We did not book because of the ship but rather the ports. The ports were definitely the hi light of the trip.
