For those who previously gave reviews for the Hawaiian Cruise via Norwegian Pride Of America you should be ashamed of yourselves. Either you had very low expectations, it was your first time cruising, or you out and out lied (?). This was ... Read more

We sailed the Pride of America so as to be able to see all 4 islands. We'd visited Hawaii before and really didn't want to waste the time in the airports to fly from island to island. From the moment we reached the pier til we got on the ... Read more

We joined a group that had chosen this week on this itinerary. We had a great time. Getting on and off the ship was very quick. I thought the food in the main free Skyline dining room was very good. We thought it was better than the ... Read more

We chose this cruise for our first visit to Hawaii because its focus was the major islands: O'ahu, Maui, Hawaii, and Kuai. All movement between islands was overnight, leaving our days for exploring. Both embarkation and disembarkation went ... Read more

Hawaii was always on our bucket list, really wanted to make the most of discovering it and decided the best way to get an overview was a cruise around the 4 main islands. Was worried about the cruise due to reviews read and forums on trip ... Read more

The NCL Pride of America is the only cruise ship that visits the 4 main islands of Hawaii starting and ending in Honolulu and that is why we chose this cruise. Pros: The staff on the ship were extremely pleasant and helpful. Even ... Read more

My wife and I just completed the Pride of America Hawaii inter-island cruise in October of 2016. It is probably the best way to efficiently and economically see multiple islands, but unfortunately the ship itself leaves much to be ... Read more

This was the worst cruise we have ever taken and we have cruised all over the world. We were looking forward to our NCL cruise around the Hawaiian Islands. This appears to be the only cruise line that does not start and end on mainland, ... Read more

We chose the cruise based upon the itinerary and the price. We had never cruised with NCL before. We were pleasantly surprised with the entire experience because we had read many negative reviews about the condition of the ship, treatment ... Read more

We recently completed a cruise on the POA. It was our second time on NCL and our eight cruise overall. We upgrade this time to a Penthouse Suite. The cabin was a good size and well appointed with plenty of storage room. We had a great ... Read more

A group of friends chose the tour and we wanted to go with them. Going to the islands were terrific and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had not gone on a cruise in over 10 years, but disagree with the forced gratuity imposed ... Read more

I sailed on this cruise as someone who cannot eat gluten or dairy. I was very skeptical that the staff and chefs could accommodate my food issues. I was very pleasantly surprised. I had contacted special needs several months in ... Read more

Based on this cruise, I am unimpressed with NCL in general. Easy way to see the islands if you want to spend money on excursions. Locale is about all this cruise has going for it. The ports are not nice. The best being Kona ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it gave me the opportunity to visit all of the main islands in Hawaii. After reading many reviews by previous travelers I was worried. The biggest complaints involved the actions and attitudes of cruise staff. ... Read more

Returned to Hawaii for our 30th Anniversary. This itinerary (and the fact that I despise sea days) drew us to the Pride of America, but I've been hesitant because I feared Norwegian was a second class line. Well, I was wrong. I was ... Read more

First of all I love to go on cruises and I thought what a better way to show my daughter the beautiful islands of Hawaii and never have to unpack during the 7 days. Plus I like not having to go to the airport and fly from island to island. ... Read more
