We have cruised on RCI before and have had very few problems. This one however was a nightmare. Booked day 1 Honolulu depart at 11:00pm 2 Kailua Kona 9am to 6pm 3 Kilaeua Volcano 12:01 to 1:00am 3Napoli coast 12:00pm to 4:00pm day 4&5 Maui 9am to 5pm next days 6-10 cruising day 11 Victoria BC 9:00am to 8:00pm 12 Vancouver 6:00am.

What we got Days 1&2 Honolulu (left Honolulu at 5:00pm on 2nd day day 3 Napali coast 4&5 Maui 6-10 cruising Day 11 Victoria BC 7:00am to 2:00pm (Left 6 hours early arrived in Vancouver at 8pm on day 11 Day 12 Vancouver disembark. Did not see the volcano and did do see the big island. We feel we were ripped off by RCI. You plan for a once in lifetime trip to Hawaii and get cheated out of half the stops. RCI did refund one day, Big deal.

Embarkation, late but went smooth.

Cabin Review

Grand Suite with Large Balcony - 1 Bedroom

Cabin GB

Cabin was the best part. Bigger than the balcony staterooms on the smaller ships. Cabin attendant was great. Balcony's have a great view of the lifeboats but I guess you have to put them somewhere.

Port Reviews


Lot to see and do. We rented and car and drove around the island


Lots of shops and restaurants


Time was cut short by RCI
