"Why did you choose to do excursions through Roberts; cheaper, better, different options, or recommended by someone?
You seemed to enjoy the cruise very much but if you went back would you go again or go a week on land?"
Roberts Hawaii was highly rated on Cruise critic and they had some amazing specials, like 3 tours for $99 and 4 for $110.
We wanted to see Hawaii, not the Pacific ... hence the NCL cruise with seven days all in Hawaii.
We have been to Hawaii before, for three weeks, in resorts on three islands, driving a rented car. That, too, was nice - but at our advanced age we wanted somebody else to handle the details. It was nice to have the same bed, pack/unpack just once, evening entertainment and the ship buffet.
