We booked this cruise on somewhat of a whim, but are so glad we did. We had an absolute blast. Vacations are VERY MUCH WHAT YOU MAKE OF THEM. If you are an unhappy person, you will dislike any trip. If you enjoy life, you will find the good in anything. This trip was awesome for our family!

We spent a couple of days in Honolulu (Waikiki Beach) prior to departure. It is very important to call out... Uber while functional in HI, is not allowed to pick up passengers from the airport. You will need to arrange a taxi or hotel transfers. We stayed at Embassy Suites - Waikiki Beach. We loved this place. Breakfast in the AM and Drinks/Snacks in the evening... a great pool, lanai and bands 4 days a week. How can you go wrong with that!? Also, walking distance to everything.

We UberXL to the port at about 12:00pm. Embarkation was a breeze. The terminal was not crowded at all. The attendants greeted us with lays, bamboo crowns for the kids and flowers for the ladies hair. Pictures & paperwork, we were on the ship before we realized it. We had lunch in the Aloha Cafe (buffet) and explored the ship.
