The ship was clean and the staff very friendly. Transportation to and from the hotel was excellent. The meal was hot, tasty and more than adequate in quantity. The hula show was entertaining. In total, a very good experience.

Depending on what hotel you staying at, there is a shuttle service but if it doesn’t come to your hotel, you may have to walk a couple blocks to get it.

Our specific cruise was steak and lobster. Didn't see any young children on board. They may have different cruises for couples versus families. I would call and check with them.

Very casual. almost anything goes as long as you are presentable. I saw some people dressed up and others like my husband and I that were very casual. I wore capri pants and a nice top.
