The crew was great. Very friendly and glad to be working again after Covid. The food in the Garden Cafe lacked variety, was cold or over cooked, everything was in some sort of sauce, and they run out some basic items like butter. The production shows were great but there was a lack of other entertainment. Casino was closed while in Hawaii waters despite being well off shore. The Local was the best restaurant with “homemade” specials each night and reasonable portions. The main dinning room was hit or miss. Schedule changed so we didn’t get a chance to visit Maui. The saving of beach chairs by 7am each day was annoying (although that seems to take place on most cruises). Overall a 3 rating, the good equaled the bad. Port of calls were good and plenty of available excursions. Some disorganization but it was there first cruise after Covid.

Raiatea

Raiatea was our favorite stop. It is a beautiful island with many bays, less populated, better than average housing and shops, and many things to do.
