Hi Deby - I don't know if you've been to this site already -- www.cruisecritic.com

We're also sailing the Wind on February 10th from Honolulu and I've been finding it quite difficult to find out info. If you post your messages on this particular site, you may find it interesting and informative. Look for me under the alias puggers_mom

Happy cruisin'

Yes I have done this cruise on this ship. As time goes by I think I am the only one that
responds to these posts.
You specifically asked about quiet or secret places on this ship. There is a pool on the stern that is not easily accessable. You have to come from below out the back door of the cabin decks and go up the stairs or come down threeflights of stairs from above.
Great place for sun and much quieter than the main pool. Below the stern pool deck there are several quiet shady decks good for reading ( a little engine vibration as decks are metal).
Rooms on ship are nice sized . Several mid ships lounges with varying entertainment .
Service is good. They do burgers and stuff right at the pool, there is a small pizzaria.
Buffet area is a bit small and cramped.Theatre is nice and entertainment is good.
Best of all your destination is Hawaii. If the ship was a rowboat and the food was gruel and the entertainment was watching a coconut fall out of a tree (which of course it is not) , you would still be going to Hawaii. Please post any specific questions and I will be glad to answer them or refer you to a post where I have already done so.
Happy cruising

thank you so much, Is the deck space your talking about on deck 9 in the front of the ship??
It looks like a small area.......... Are there any chairs there??? We have cabin # 9203. I hope it is cause it is right outside our door.

Stern is the BACK of the ship. There is in fact a very small pool in the BOW , but it is for crew only and not accessable at all by passengers.

hi Derby, we are going April 4th as well.
Have you checked out the land tours yet or are you going to do it on your own?
Where are you from?

Hi Gene~
My husband and I are from NJ. Where are you from? Who will you be travling with?
We will be doing the ship tours and have booked them already through NCL.
Did you also get the package deal with 2 nights at a hotel?
It will be our first time to Hawaii and I cant wait!!!!!!!

Have done several cruises on the Wind. It is a great ship. Its been a couple of years since we were on it. We did cruise from Hawaii to Ensenada, Mexico. I Strongly suggest doing a pre-cruise hotel stay in Honolulu. Flying that farand into a totally different time zone is difficult. By going in early you get a couple of days to adjust, plus the added benefit of seeing this beautiful Island.

Derby....we are from Clemmons, NC and yes we also booked land cruises thru NCL but have not received confirmation yet. In fact, they said that they were going to revise the tours in mid February. I had a listing that is suppose to be good THRU April. We are arriving on April 2, which will give us time to rest up and see the island.
