Great company & ship for Hawaii touring. If a newbie to cruising, this is a spectacular place to start. We totally enjoyed highly professional staff & services. Tours arranged delivered everything promised. Our expectations were more than satisfied .. Do it if first timer.

One thing to consider on this cruise. It's all about the islands not the ship. That being said, PoA is not a bad looking ship. She was built in 2005 and refurbished in 2016. There are no casinos on board. Because, gambling is illegal in the Hawaiian Islands. All of the ports, except Kona, are in industrial areas. And, they had shuttle access to all major car rental companies. Kona is accessed by tendering using the life boats. The ship is really a moving hotel with meals included. The crew were wonderful. Activities on the ship were limited. Again, this cruise is about the islands. So, if you would enjoy visiting four island and five cities in Hawaii, then this cruise is for you. If you want the glitz and glamour of other cruise ships, then sail on those ships.

Great cruise.

The ship should have a more tropical Hawaiian feel to it. The staff needs to be motivated to work there. If the buffet will remain the same everyday, then the dining options should change daily.

Such a great way to see Hawaii! This one rates as one of our top vacations. We will definitely try to do this one again in the future.

A great destination, with some disappointments in the journey

The biggest problem is that NCL has no competition for this cruise. The only other choice is leaving or returning to a non US port, involving more costs, more time and spending several days at sea. But if you enjoy sailing the open sea, you may wish to consider the alternatives.

Loved Cruising the Hawaiian Islands

Nov 30th, 2018

Seemed like we did not spend much time on ship. Only for quick breakfast, dinner and sleeping. Most time spent exploring the islands. Wish there was a least one sea day. But a great way to see all the islands and spend some time there. Unfortunately, I felt that the only port with easy walking access to a town was Kona.

Bare Bones Hawaiian cruise

Nov 26th, 2018

Our room was smaller than on other cruise lines like Princess and Celebrity. There were no classes in the gym, yoga, Zumba, etc. Very disappointing. There was no champagne cocktail party with the captain for return guests. The casino was closed, the towels were rough, and the trout was dry. The staff was very accommodating and efficient,

Hawaii "shuttle" cruise

Nov 23rd, 2018

We had group of 10 so excursions were too expensive. We chose to pre reserve rental cars and do our own thing on each island. Pre-reserve rental cars with no cash or credit card. None of the ports offer free overnight parking for rental cars. Therefore if you keep a rental car overnight you either have to take it back to airport long term parking or pay for other parking closer if available. Some rental car companies offer ship to car rental shuttles. Some don't. Taxi's are available.
