My wife has always wanted to go to Hawaii, especially to see the Arizona Memorial and to walk on the decks of the USS Missouri. The tours were were great and if you are in to history these are a must see. The highlight of our trip was the Island of Kauai and Smith's Tropical Gardens.This 30 acre paradise is a feast for the senses. There are themed island lagoons, lush tropical gardens, recreated Polynesian villages and more. We found our ship board crew always friendly and helpful, our cabin always clean, neat and well stocked. The diner wait staff were fantastic, they always remembered your names and likes and had everything waiting for you. When we brought down our large bottle of 50th anniversary Champagne to our table the staff brought out the correct glass ware so that we could share the Champagne with our table mates. All in all it was an almost great cruise.When we were in Kauai at the gardens there was an anniversary & wedding celebration for newly weds and anniversary couples, after the ceremony special certificates were issued to us. The certificates were printed and supplied by the ships special services department, this department failed miserably in that they put the wrong date on the certificates and when we got back on the ship they tried to correct the problem, only they made it noticeably worse. Needlessly to say, my wife and I were very upset because they were signed at the garden by the owner and could not be redone.

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin MB D601
Mini-Suites have a little more space which is nice when on a 15 day voyage plus the bathroom is larger. The balcony is very nice however the cabin balcony's above you can look directly down into yours because of the way they are configured.
