Loved the fact that ncl had first three days on land with excursions included in price. marriott was beautiful, excursions were very interesting. when we got on the ship which was recently refurbished it was done very nicely. staff was great and more than helpful. we always get an inside cabin since all we do is sleep in it, was very spacious with lots of room for all our stuff. the dining was just okay. Not alot of choices in main dining area. the buffet needed more veggies and less carbs. but edible. entertainment was good. shore excursions were great, just wish time was longer in many areas. Don't like being rushed with such beautiful views. maybe spend less time in touring the downtown areas. loved how ncl provided such nice lunches. two of ours were at resorts. embarkation and disembarkation was excellent. at the end our bus was waiting for us, we walked off ship and onto bus to airport. Excellent..only problem we had was arriving at airport, instead of holding ncl signs for transfer to hotel, there were people with clipboards only. we were trying to get luggage and missed people with clipboards. holding ncl signs would have helped us.

LOVED HAWAII, LOVED DOING IT WITH NCL

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Volcano National Park & Hilo Waterfall Tour
    rainbow falls was not much to see, was not impressed with that area, the volcano national park was very interesting. more time could have been spent at actual volcano which was giving us quite a show that day. great for those that have never seen lava fields or volcanoes

    this was last day of our cruise, ship takes you down this coast very closely, the coast if majestic to say the least. happens around dinner time...don't miss this.
