We travelled with a group and left the ship in Kauai. Although it was pre-arranged before we left and every day on the ship it was reaffirmed - Disembarkation was a disaster. The group had arranged to have tables together at dinner previous to boarding. The tables were together (sort of) but different sizes and so our pre-arranged seating arrangements had to be changed - thanks to the staff who helped in this endeavor. The cost of beverages on the ship was absolutely ridiculous. A bottle of wine on the ship that cost $43 and the same wine on shore cost $7.89. The port staff were very unfriendly. 1 of our group was getting back on the ship with her picture id and sea pass and the port staff said that he had to go on the ship and run her card to see if it was her, although she had a picture ID. We had completed a Baltic cruise in 2015 (including Russia) and didn't have the same hassles.

Disappointing - average cruise
