Sail Date: Jan 2020
Cabin: Balcony

We chose this cruise mainly for the itinerary. The four islands we visited were all beautiful! When asked to pick a favorite, it was very difficult to choose.

The ship, on the other hand, is the worst I've ever been on. The ambiance, food, and crew were all sub-par. The food left a bitter taste in my mouth ... pun intended. I could literally find better Main Dining Room food in the frozen food section of the local market. The crew is 75% American because it's a US flagged ship. I live in the USA and 80% of the crew could use a course in customer service from McDonalds ... it would be an improvement. Our group nicknamed them the Walking Dead. However, the foreign crew were fantastic. Unfortunately, we had American MDR waiters ... it was a very painful and long process. Our cabin steward (from the Dominican) was absolutely great.

We had Balcony Cabin 9550 and it was very small. We've sailed NCL in the past and this is the smallest cabin we've seen. There was adequate space under the bed for suitcase storage. The balcony was small also.

Though it was a cloudy day, it was breathtaking.

Waimea Canyon, River Cruise, and Fern Grotto were all fantastic.

If you do this, do the full circle.

Hilo

Wonderful and educational.
