The food was very good particularly in the Windjammer. The cabin steward was responsive and attentive. The ship captain was pleasant and visible throughout the cruise. The itinerary was good with a variety of stops, but Hilo is mediocre and not very pleasant to visit. Homeless sleeping on the street during the day and trash barrels overflowing. The cruise director, Mr. Jones, obviously needed to refine his activities planning skills. He scheduled a veteran's meeting in a bar that was open to the public and full of football fans. I subsequently spoke with him about not having a dedicated meeting room, and he informed me he would reschedule the meeting for the next day. He did exactly that but in another bar that was again open to the public and exposed to the very loud dance class music one deck below in the open atrium. Impossible to meet or converse. I spoke to him again and he only had excuses. Poor planning and coordination by the Director.

I choose this cruise because I wanted to travel to HI. Hilo was dirty aka trash cans overflowing along the main drag and homeless sleeping on the sidewalk in the tourist area.
