Loved the Hawaii portion of the itinerary. After a great time in the islands, we headed out for 5 days of cold, cloudy weather. Not the fault of RC, but just the same, plans for swimming and sunning were dead on arrival.
All of that aside, no one on board seemed to know the schedule. I asked what night is formal night, no one knew, not even the customer service desk!
This was was our first cruise in 30 years and RC didn't win any awards for helping us understand the process.
Would we go again? NO WAY. We would fly to Hawaii, do inter-island air and skip the cruise. You are in port for a short time, so it is no way to see Hawaii.
Other downers: Constant upselling of drink and internet packages. We figured out that bottles of wine were discounted 40% in the specialty dining venues. So we would buy wine then and have it delivered to the main dining room.
The shower in the cabin (balcony) was so tiny and poorly constructed it was a joke.
Dining was actually fine.
The balcony was a non-factor given the weather but was a nice touch.
Josh (owner) gave a full day to us. Everyone on the tour was thrilled.
Great to see the aquarium, and wilderness
There was some congestion just to get started. We saw this with cruise company booked tours
