It's good that this ship was able to do something good. We were on it last February out of Hawaii, each island we went to they switched ports which greatly reduced our time there. We left for Fanning Island Mon around 2PM got there 9AM Wed, this is a tender island so by the time they schuttled over 2000 people we got to the island at 11:45 AM and had to be back in line to depart at 2PM. It's a beautiful island though. We arrived back in our Hawaii port Friday around 2PM. The time at sea was very rough, cold and extremely windy, which some of the crew said is TYPICAL. So for four days we spent 2 1/2 hours at Fanning Island and 4 days inside the ship because the weather was so bad. We've been on 11 cruises, they all have been great with the exception of this one. A cruise out of Hawaii should be a fond memory but wasn't and many on board were as disappointed as we were. We wrote to NCL however they have not responded. Save your money and go elsewhere.
