We flew from London and stayed 2 nights pre-cruise in San Francisco. As Elite members check in was quick and easy and we were on board within 20 minutes. The outside of the ship was rusty in places but inside the ship was fantastic. Our balcony cabin was lovely but had no footrest on the balcony or a cabin kettle.Our cabin steward got us a footrest but couldn't get a kettle. Our Elite mini bar set up was very welcome. We had Any time dining and the first 5 nights we dined in the Michaelangelo restaurant on deck 5 and as we wanted a table for 2 we were given a buzzer to wait for a table. The other 10 nights we dined in DaVinci restaurant which was anytime dining after 7.15pm and we were shown to a table immediately. After 4 sea days we arrived at a wet Hilo. Next day we were in Oahu and took a tour to Pearl Harbor. Next day in Kauai we did a fantastic movies tour. Next day was maui where we got a tender and being Elite we met the loyalty rep in Michaelangelo restaurant and give Priority tender tickets. We then had 4 sea days before reaching Ensenada in Mexico. Another sea day later we were back in San Francisco. The food and service was fantastic in every venue. After a quick walk off disembarkation carrying our own cases we quickly got a taxi to take us to a hotel where we had a day room booked so we could explore more of San Francisco.
