Itinerary: Hawaii

We have just returned from a cruise to Hawaii on the Oosterdam. This ship is a beautiful but I am afraid there is little to do aboard not many activities unless you want to be in the fitness centre all day may I suggest more lectures on something more than Hawaii all the time also more games ect.around the pool there didn't seem to be any entertainment staff except the cruise director and a DJ who worked their socks off. It needed better evening entertainment which was very poor except for a ventriloquist and the last show with the Oostadam dances. We didn't think the tours were worth the money and we thought $11 per day each person was far to much for gratuities My last complaint is the farce of the last day getting off the ship we had to get up at 5am on Saturday morning (bearing in mind we would not get home till Sunday night at 8pm) stand in a long queue to get our passport stamped.It was mayhem. It was bad enough for us but one lady from Canada had to be up at 3-30 to get her husband who had MS dressed and ready disgusting.

Good lots of choices but often not very hot.

Good but not cleaned till the afternoon
