We have taken 4 Royal Carribean cruises and are planning a Hawaiin cruise on the NOrwegian Wind. We have heard we may not enjoy it as much since we are used to Royal C.

Every cruise line, indeed every ship, is different. How much you enjoy your cruise in Hawaii will depend on several things: what you enjoy most about cruising on RCCL, what you enjoy most about cruising in general, and - most important - your own attitude. If you go on your cruise looking for things you don't like,you are bound to find them, no matter which cruise line you are on. If you go with the attitude that you will have a good time, whether this ship measures up to ones you have been on in the past, you will enjoy yourself.

I have toured the Wind and have sailed on both NCL and RCCL, and have found I like both of them. They are different, true, but the cruise experience is still a great time! Have fun and don't worry!

Norwegian cruise line isn't as high of quality as Royal Caribbean but you may enjoy trying something a little different. They take pride is being different from the other cruise lines.

First off, it is "Free-style" cruising which means you can dine with whom, whenever between 5:30PM - 10:00PM and dress however you like. It is not a traditional cruise experience.

There are several alternative restaurants to choose from that have a surcharge between 10.00 - 15.00. These restaurants are excellent but if you eat there every night you will have spent a significant amount on dining during the cruise. Their main restaurants have a lot of quantity with average food.

If you are going to dine in the alternative restaurants make sure you rsvp early as they are small intimate restaurants and get booked up quickly.

Their chocoholic mid-night buffet is the best I've had industry wide.

Their broadway show entertainment lineup is excellent.

However their room are unimpressive unless you book suites and higher.

It's the perfect cruise for someone who doesn't like to dress up or be told who they will sit with at dinner and when.
