I had this cruise set up for September 2020 of course some thing happened that stopped all of us from cruising.
With the post Rona hitches in mind the cruise was excellent. See lots of complaining about service. Unfortunately understanding and patience seem to be in short supply. The HAL crew you could see were depleted from pre Rona cruising but the effort expended was above and beyond for the patient traveller.
The embarkation was a mess with the rumoured explanation being some disembarking issues. (Got to get off the ship when they tell you people!).
Lots of room and going solo. Wish the supplement was cheaper but what can you do if you like to travel alone. Cabin stewards were 110% crew members.
Rainy. Excellent HAL excursion to Volcanos
Two day made for an excellent stop.
Great HAL excursion to Volcano
Great HAL excursion to Waimea valley
