Hello! My husband and I went to Hawaii for our 10 year anniversary and we had a great time. The cruise ship is okay, good for a floating hotel in which you can unpack once and see all the islands. We never ate in the main dining rooms, only specialty restaurants, which were good. The entertainment options onboard were not very good and most of the ship felt deserted after 10 PM. We are in our mid thirties and we were the youngest passengers onboard. The crew/staff say the typical passenger is either " newlywed or nearly dead." The service was average , most of the crew is American and definitely noticed the difference in the quality of service compared to other ships. Otherwise the excursions were great and we enjoyed our time in Hawaii.

Thanks so much for your reply. Your experience is consistent with what we had heard. We have sailed on several other NCL trips and have always found the staff friendly and helpful. Some of the friends we have made that work for NCL have said the experience on the POA could be a little different. We will most likely give it a try, it seems to be a great way to see a lot of Hawaii in 7 days.....thanks again!

Your welcome! You will enjoy it, just go in expecting it won't be like your typical NCL cruise.
