Sail Date: Nov 2019
Cabin: Oceanview Porthole Window
Sailing the coast of Kauai
Waiting to cross the equator

We had a wonderful cruise. The itinerary, Hawaii and the Polynesian Islands, was fabulous. We were worried about all of the days at sea but we found plenty to do and were not bored. Of course the islands were terrific. We especially liked the snorkeling/beach day in Moorea.

The staff was very friendly and hardworking and the ship was clean and pleasant. We did not eat in the specialty restaurants and found the food in the dining room and buffet to be good. We have sailed on other cruise lines, some with higher ratings, but were pleasantly surprised by Norwegian. I would not hesitate to recommend the cruise.

Aside from the ports a highlight was crossing the equator by sea. It was a spectacular day weather wise, the cruise director was a great Neptune, and we enjoyed the kissing of the fish ceremony.

Cabin Review

Oceanview Porthole Window

Clean and well laid out. It was organized so we could fit a lot of items in there. Not the best deck but we spend very little time in the room so it is not worth it to spend extra money.

Stayed at the Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort. Loved it. Of course visited Pearl Harbor
