With no previous experience of cruises we went with no expectations but we were pleasantly surprised. Thoroughly enjoyed the cruise particularly as we were able to leave the ship each day for excursions. The ship excursions were very expensive so we booked through Roberts Hawaii...best decision they were great. Plenty of places to choose from for dining. Buffet was generally ok but we preferred the Skyline which was a little more up market, quieter and a little less frantic. Pool area is very busy and we actually never made use of these facilities preferring to do the day trips. Shows were fun and well presented. Recommend to anyone wanting a taste of the main Hawaiian islands. Gift shop was very well priced compared to the port shops got some good bargains. Biggest criticism would be the mandatory drill at the beginning we were left standing for so long one lady fainted...just seemed to go on and on without needing to...no doubt waiting for inconsiderate passengers.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Oceanview Picture Window
Cabin OA 4528
Cabin was reasonably sized. Intended for 4 but with just 2 of us in there. Would have been really cramped with 4 in the room.
