I chose this cruise because we wanted to visit the Hawaiian Islands and didn't know which islands. We also chose this one because it offered several in port hours and it only took up 7 days. We arrived from Ohio 1 day before the cruise and visited Pearl Harbor. The ship was about the same size as another cruise we'd done with Carnival. If you work out, it had a nice facility at the top and a large walking track area around deck 5. My family works out a lot, so this was a plus. The cabin was average. The dining was average. The meals in the main dining room were tasty but the high-end choices (lobster) were not offered. Because of the time change and excursions we didn't attend a great amount of entertainment. We did catch a band one night, Toby Beau, they were pretty good. Our room steward and dining servers were excellent. Excursions for a family of 4 can be pricey. We booked the Haleakala Sunset Tour and a luau in Kaui, both were very good. Our best excursion was in Maui. We booked a pre-arranged taxi through Maui Island Taxi Tour. It was excellent!! Every port offers excursions at all price ranges and you don't have to go through the ship.
