Poor timing for maintenance

Sail Date: Dec 2018
Cabin: Owner's Suite with Large Balcony

It was the only Hawaiian isle cruise departing and returning to a Hawaiian port. Embarkation was very smooth and organized as was disembarkation.

NCL missed a great opportunity to do routine maintenance the first two nights we were in port at Maui. Instead, they shorted us a day of cruising the cliffs of Kauai, a highlight for us of the trip since we live in the islands. Maui is a larger port and much better suited for maintenance. Also, not having that daytime cruise, we missed seeing any whales, dolphins and other sea life.

Our best, most fun and delicious evening was in the Japanese restaurant. We plan on doing that again on our next cruise. The upper stern deck was the best place for breakfast; outside, quiet and no freezing AC. Avoid the already scrambled eggs and go to the omelet station. Those guys are good.

Cabin Review

Owner's Suite with Large Balcony

Cabin was lovely with a nice deck and unobstructed view. Plenty of storage and hangers.
