We were skeptical upon reading some of the reviews. We usually stay at Four Seasons Resorts, but since we did an entire family cruise(13 of us), we decided to try this one. Boy, did we have a terrific time. All our kids had a GREAT expericence in the Kids Club. They wanted to stay in there all night. The Kids Club crew were awesome.
The entire staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room steward/housekeeper(Cora) was great. Our rooms were great(some of us stayed in the 12th floor suites and rest of family stayed in a 7th floor family room). The Aloha Cafe(buffet) chef and staff were SO friendly and helpful. The Lazy J Steakhouse staff were great(we ate in there for several breakfasts and lunches(suite dining privledge, which was nice). We did eat in Aloha Cafe mostly due to kids and loved it. The only specialty restaurant we ate in was the Jefferson Bistro and was equally impressed with the staff and chef. Played golf twice and had a great time.
We loved touring around the little town of Kona and really loved the beauty of Kuaui.
We were very impressed with the ship and entire staff and would LOVE to go on it again.

Aloha Cafe(buffet) breakfast, lunch and dinner was Great. So much food and the dessert area was unreal.

Loved the yogurts available at breakfast as well as the fat free chocolate milk(cant find this anywhere).

Lazy J Steakhouse for several lunches and breakfast was great quality food and service.
Jefferson Bistro food was very good and service top notch.
Liberty main restaurant was very good also.

Stateroom 12500 had lots of room for us and our two little kids. Great room, loved it.

Seemed like a lot of fun things, didnt participate as much as wanted to.
Two little kids napping schedule and family stuff.
But, they had everyday at 3 0r 3:30, tastings. Beer tasting, wine , mojito, marguarita, etc,
Sports on TV in Gold Rush Saloon.
