Additional details

Sail Date: May 2018
Cabin: Interior

We booked this cruise while we were sailing on Empress of the Seas to Cuba. We have sailed with this line several times before, with Celebrity and RCL ships. In every instance except for this one, the cruises have been excellent. NOT this one.

Cruise was from Hawaii, around the islands, ending in Vancouver, BC. 10 days. We had been to the islands 35 years ago and wanted to get back to see the changes. Sailing dates were May 3-13, we flew in a day early to catch up on Honolulu sights which was a good thing, should have come in two days early or more. Pearl Harbor was outstanding(not a RCL feature)

We were scheduled to board at 12:30, got to pier at 12:15, checked luggage and then lines started. Did not get to cabin until 2:30 at which point we were told that cabin was not ready and would not be ready until 3:30-4pm. That was the first clue.

Cabin Review


Cabin 4V

Cabin was inside but still roomy and comfortable, lots of storage, cabin steward was great and made the trip tolerable

Port Reviews


off the ship on time, then again on the lines for 90 minutes for bus to airport, RCL no help once you are down the gangplank.
