line critiques

 

Holland America

 

Of the five Hawaiian cruise lines ranked on this page, Holland America is the highest priced. But it's a good value for cruisers craving sophisticated ambiance, dining, and service - and refined fellow passengers.

I do not recommend it for most families (children could be bored) and young party-goers (the social scene is lively but not vibrating).

San Diego, Seattle, Vancouver, Honolulu

 

Royal Caribbean International

 

It's the overall best Hawaiian cruise line in the mid-priced category. Royal Caribbean is well-geared for families cruising with children and teens because it has a laudable assortment of facilities and organized activities for them. Ditto for teens. Food is above average for a mid-price cruise line.
