We wanted to see all of Hawaii and that is why we went on a cruise. The ship did that in my opinion, it took us to all of the islands.Embarkation went well and disembarkation was good compared to other cruises we have been on. Now here’s my problem three of the nights we smelled sewage from the ship in our cabin. Michael did a great job containing the smell and was very pleasant, but this was unexceptionable in my viewpoint. Staff were very friendly and kind! The shore excursions were overpriced from the ship! We found out that local taxi services are the way to go and more affordable. Food was good and the bartenders were good! Like I said not a great time on the ship but Hawaii was fantastic with the places to visit. The music was not good for people of different backgrounds and ages. You need to fix that in a hurry! Putting people to sleep is not good music. Get out of the 60s and come to the here and now. I get that you have older people on board but come on let’s have party in the middle of the ship every night. Trivia, dance and music contest with the cruise director doing it in the main hall on deck 5 and 6 instead of music that putting you to sleep. We on vacation and want to party this is not a mirage! The food was good on the ship especially the three main dining halls we had booked. Overall I would say to make sure that if you smell sewage early get moved ASAP!

Cabin Review

Family Balcony
Cabin B3 7646
Michael was wonderful with keeping the the room clean but we kept getting a smell from the ship. Three of the nights it happened to us while on board. He took care of it but to spend this kind of money I would not expect to smell sewage. Also when we booked I specifically told them I didn’t want a blocked view well to my surprise I was looking at a boat to my right on my balcony. I asked them three times before getting on the ship to make sure we were not on a partial block view well they told me it wasn’t. You be the judge 7646 was our room.
