This was our first cruise to Hawaii, and I hope it will not be our last!. We arrived at port early (before noon) but were able to board right away. Our cabin was very comfortable and spacious..we had upgraded to a mini-suite. The cabin steward was very attentive. We had excellent service in the Michaelangelo dining room every night. The head waiter held a table with our favorite waiter every night for us and another couple we met on board. The menu choices each night were very good, better than our last Princess cruise. Service was outstanding. The entertainment provided each night was excellent. We especially enjoyed the comedy/pianest and singer Tom Franek. Also Princess's rendition of The Voice to showcase the talent of passengers was very professionally done. We took one Princess excursion in Kauai, which was excellent. It was to Waimai Canyon and the Fern Grotto and river boat ride. Our other excursions were from independent tour operators and they were also excellent. One thing we did notice that was lacking was the selection of movies in the Princess theater during the afternoon sea days. On previous cruises excellent movies were shown in the afternoons but on this one there was only 1 day with afternoon movies and they were very old and unappealing.

Fantastic Cruise !

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin ME D204
We are so glad we accepted the offer to upgrade to a mini-suite. The extra room on this long cruise with 10 sea days was great. It was nice to have a sofa and extra tv
