  • Destination: the South Pacific
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

We had already been on the Volendam with HAL and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and this cruise was visiting the South Pacific and Hawaii.

We were on board 16 nights Sydney to Honolulu we felt this was long enough for us and it was.

The entertainment was far better than on the Volendam we enjoy the evening entertainment in the Vista Lounge and the guest speakers in the day were all very interesting.

We enjoyed our evening meals in the main dining room and the Staff did everything possible to serve us well. We chose a table for 6/8 which meant we sat with different couples each night. Therefore we met some lovely people from Canada America and Australia.

We also enjoyed our breakfast and lunch in the Lido where the Staff were very helpful and we met lots of lovely people there also. In fact we met a lovely couple from Australia we had met on Volendam two years previous what a coincidence.

The places we visited were very beautiful the small island of Davuni in Fiji.

Our cabin had a balcony on level 5, it was great and we were looked after very well by our cabin boy.

We only have a couple of things which we were not happy with. One was the cost of the Wifi and the fact that it was of very poor quality.

The other thing was at the end of our cruise we needed the reception to call the company we had booked our transfer to the hotel in Honolulu with to confirm the time we would be disembarking the ship but they said they could not do it as we had not booked it through them, we had no phone so unfortunately we waited for an hour in the hot sun outside the cruise terminal and our transport did not turn up so we had to pay for another taxi and lost the Money we had already paid but I suppose this was a minor problem.

We also contacted the chesty thing in the last couple of days on the ship which in fact turned out to be Whooping Cough which was confirmed by blood test by our local GP and we are still coughing now after 7 weeks.

Excellent cabin with plenty of room. We had a balcony which gave us stunning views of the ports especially Sydney Harbour.
