We chose this cruise because although we have cruised here three times previously it is an area which we find very picturesque and we like the Hawaiian dancing. The ship appeared to have had a refit since our last sailing on her. The cabin was very nice and we could not fault the cleanliness of all areas of the vessel. We were impressed with the very large dining room, we were on freedom dining and whatever time we seemed to go for dinner we were always able to get a table. In fact we were able to choose to have the same table each evening so of course kept the same waiters which was very nice. We chose to eat in the large cafeteria for breakfast and lunch. We had read reviews from people before going and they were complaining about the food being cold before they found a table but we always seemed to find a table and could not complain about the temperature or quality of the food. The staff were extremely pleasant, always had a smile and a chat. The food was very good both in the self service and the dining room. There was a very big choice for each dinner and also lunch. Well presented, hot and nicely cooked. We have no complaints concerning the good. There were lots of activities on board and they were well attended. Unfortunately the weather was abysmal so deck activities were really out of the question on most days. The entertainment staff worked hard to keep passengers entertained. The shows in the evening were very good. We particularly enjoyed a party of local people who came on board and entertained us with beautiful dances and activities. The ships dancers and singers were really good too. Although the weather was bad, we enjoyed our cruise. We had good service throughout our time on the ship and would certainly recommend it to anyone wanting to explore this area.

Good cruise despite the weather

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BE 9052
Cabin kept imacculate. Nothing was too much trouble for our cabin steward. He always had a smile on his face and whenever we went out of our cabin, if he was working in the corridor he would shout to us and wish us a happy day.
Cabin was rather small but we managed o.k the weather was very poor so we were unable to make good use if our balcony.i look forward to sitting there with a drink in the evening but it was not warm enough to do this.
