Any info you could share would be most Appreciated.
I must say I have thoroughly enjoyed every post from your cruise and your pictures are beautiful. You posts about the car rentals also answered a few of my concerns about how the rental car parking and shuttles work .
Thanks a ton !!
We ordered room service a couple of times (mostly just salads for the girls or chicken wings from the Cadillac Diner), but usually went out to eat. The main reason is that although our room was labeled a "suite", there wasn't a real table or chairs to eat at. We had a small coffee table in the living room and 2 tiny tables on the balcony. I honestly don't think 8202 should be called a suite other than for the HUGE balcony and 2nd bedroom. The bathroom was worse than the bathroom I had on the Carnival Glory (just a regular balcony room). If they had a decent sized table with 4 chairs out on the balcony (which is the only place in that room where it could possibly go), then we would have had a meal or 2 in there. We didn't get a "suite" feeling with this room, but it didn't really take anything away from our vacation. The 2nd bedroom was very nice to have, and the balcony was amazing!!!

Thank You for responding to my question . That would have been hard to enjoy a meal with no real seating options .
Were you supplied with special menus ? Or just the standard room service ?
Your reviews and information has been wonderful to read . I have really enjoyed them
Thanks again for taking the time to share with us )

I agree! We were in the same suite over the holidays and my daughter ordered room service for breakfast one morning. One cabinet surface holds the huge coffee maker, one the tv and the other had the appetizers from the evening before. We were scrambling to find space for her to put her tray. My husband and I had the adjoining balcony cabin and our bathroom was the same as the suite's -tiny! But the suite balcony was wonderful!

We did not have special menus in our "suite", but I would imagine the bigger suites would have them (we had menus for every restaurant in the buffet drawer when we stayed in the garden villa on the Dawn).

We stayed at the Outrigger Luana Waikiki. We had a city view room with 2 beds and a kitchenette. It is located very convenient to shops, the park, beaches, etc. We were happy with our choice. There is an ABC store right across the street that sells just about anything you could want. To the right of the hotel there are shops such as Victoria's Secret, Coach, etc. all within walking distance. We had dinner at the Hard Rock Café (a 5 minute walk from hotel) for Thanksgiving.

We are getting ready to re-book our trip to Hawaii.
We would have been arriving at the Pride of America, just after you were departing, so it was especially nice to read your review.
(We had to cancel with about a week to go before leaving home, due to sudden serious illness, and we are certainly glad we had trip insurance.)

We were going to take the same type of "flat bed" seats, as this was a major trip, to celebrate two major life events.

Were the seats/beds really comfy enough to have some proper sleep?
Do you think it helped prevent some jet lag?
(We are also planning some other "distant" travel, and hope that the extra expense - or points, sometimes - would be worthwhile.)

We had the same problem trying to find a tour for a catamaran/etc. to see NaPali. I guess some of them don't operate in the winter months (?).

Thanks for posting the photo links!

We are really looking forward (again!) to our first trip to Hawaii, but haven't decided exactly when yet.

Thank you for the nice review. We had that suite last Sept and loved it. Going back Sept 2014. Great pictures lots of fun reading comments. We fell in love with the islands and look forward to return.

We loved the seat/beds, but I can't say I got much sleep on them ...I felt like it would be a "waste" to sleep...I had to play with every button, watched a movie, ate & drank, etc. My daughter did sleep for about an hour though...in fact I had a hard time waking her up for landing . I didn't really have much problem with jet lag surprisingly, so maybe laying flat even if I didn't sleep helped?? (I always seem to have trouble with jet lag going from NY to Las Vegas, so I was expecting some, but nope .) I definitely think it was worth the money for those seats. I hope your trip goes well when you finally get to go. Have a great time!!

Enjoy your return trip. We definitely want to go back again sometime, but I don't know if we will book a suite again if we go. We just don't feel we got our money's worth since we were off the ship more than on it .

LOVE the review!! It only makes me more excited for our June trip The pictures are great also. Going with our large family group (24 of us total) with DH & DD with me. DD is 25. Did your girls especially like or dislike anything? Also, any chance your might have your Dailies from the ship? AND be willing to post them Can't find anything more current than 5/2013.

Where you in a S1? My sister and I are thinking of booking this in 2015 when the rates are lower. I'll be 36 and get the main bedroom and my sister will be 31, her 2 kids will be 6 and 2, so the younger one will still be able to cruise for free!

You think that second bedroom would be accommodating for the 3 of them?

I think I would put the 2 kids in the 2nd bedroom and have your sister sleep on pull-out couch in living room. The bed in 2nd BR isn't all that big. You can have the room steward close the bed every morning so you have a couch to sit on in that room but we just left it as a bed everyday. We did fold living room couch back up every day though. The one thing I will say about the balcony is that the railing is slats not glass like most. I would be very nervous with little ones out there as they could probably get through those rails. The suite would be great for you guys otherwise because there is a door on 2nd bedroom so you could put the kids to bed and hang out with your sister in living room or on balcony. Have a great trip !!! It was awesome!

Default Loved your review

Just had to say I read your complete review, and it was absolutely great and comprehensive. I am not booked on that cruise but have been to Hawaii several times and have almost always stayed at the Luana.

About the road to Hana - I was very pregnant on one of our trips along the road. It was so long and filled with so many turns that I had already picked out the Hawaiian name I was going to use if I gave birth at anytime there. My daughter did wait to be born at our local hospital, and I have been back on the route since then. Sorry about your rain at times. If you return, put Pearl Harbor back on your list of must sees.

Aloha.

My girls were just happy to lay in the sun. They liked walking around the shops at the port in Kona and buying their souvenirs there. They lost interest in the Road to Hana rather early on, but were "stuck" for the duration (about 5 hours on that road). They weren't as interested in the volcano as I was. They really had fun with the stand-up paddleboards in Kauai (and were pretty good at it for never having done it.) They just rented them right at the shop by the beach.

I have all the dailies except for day 7 (can't find it anywhere).

Thanks. I can't imagine doing the road to Hana pregnant! That couldn't have been easy. It was beautiful though . We were sorry that we didn't get to see the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor, but were very moved by the ceremony going on for the anniversary the day we were there. If we go back to Hawaii, we will make sure to get tickets ahead of time.

Thanks so much for the dailies. They will help immensely in trying to do some planning My DD said she would like to try the paddle boards. Glad to hear that they are available for rent easily on the beach.

I had to read your POA review!!!! I can see all but the first picture BUT, I need to click on every link. I don't mind though. They're great pictures and they go great with the "story". Now You have me wanting to check prices for Hawaii! I've never been!

I know...sorry . I figured it out later but never had to do it that way before. Thanks for sticking with it though . You will love Hawaii if you decide to go. I would recommend saving money and going with an oceanview or balcony though because you really are only in the room to shower and sleep.

Thank you so much for your review and pictures. My son (the king), my sister, and I are booked on this cruise in August and I am more excited now than before after reading your review. Coming from the East coast too, we are spending two days in Honolulu before the cruise and flying home directly after. 151 days can not come fast enough!
