American crew anxious to please,and all went well on embark/disembarkation.
Two overnights (Kauai and Maui) allow time to rent a car and see parts of these islands unseen by many tourists. Bought air from NCL and had UA over and DL back without a hitch.
Found excursions EXPENSIVE so rented from Thrifty at every port for far less $$ and saw MUCH, MUCH more than passengers who booked onboard.
This was truly a bargain cruise.
I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
