Disappointing service, accomodations and food. Tipping in advance seems to take away the incentive to provide good service. Freestyle seems to add to the disincentive. Great ports, reasonable prices on anything you need when you get there.

Nobody got sick, but it was dissapponting compared to previous cruising experiences.

Smaller than most. Hardly ever saw the room steward. Had to make multiple calls to get things repaired or replaced. Some in our party had better experences, I think tipping in advance detracts from the service oriented attitude we usually experience.

Good. Its a smaller ship, so the amount of activities is limited, but they were adequate.

Zip line got good review from all that participate. Dole Pineapple was good, but don't pay for the upgraded treatment, as the "regulars" seemed to enjoy it more. Try to get to Pearl Harbor early, as it is first come, first served, to get in. We got there and would not have been able to do the tour and make it back to the hotel by check-out time, so they drove around describing trees until some on the bus insisted to return to the hotel. Getting the full refunds promised is an ongoing ordeal.

Great sites. Excellent stops. Rent a car when you can and use a GPS to explore this beautiful destination.
