"“it is worth the time and money”"
My wife and I went on the cruise without expecting much. We were really surprised. The crew was so nice and and the short history of the island was great. The food was what caught us off guard. As a person whose family is from Hawaii, I figured the food was going to be plain and bland. It was the opposite. My favorite lomi salmon did not disappoint, the beef and chicken were just as good and to top it off, it is all you can eat and throw in one free cocktail as part of the purchase price. We had a great time and would do it again.
