Ship Facts: Pride of America Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Pride of America Deck Plans
December 2011 - Review from a 1st Time Cruiser
We took our first cruise with NCL Pride of America December 2011 as a belated (3 yrs) honeymoon.

Embarkation went smoothly. We were right on, had lunch in the main dinning area and was able to get to our cabin shortly after finishing dinner. We found the cabin to be small thought we have nothing to compare it to. Being large it was not fun to navigate the foot of the bed and the wall, shower wasn't very room, but found the rest of the bathroom to be sufficient.

We enjoyed the ship and found it clean and expansive and our room steward was very nice. We had a family balcony and enjoyed it when our chain smoking neighbors weren't out.

The main dining food was okay, but nothing to rave about. We did enjoy the 50s dinner theme - my husband and I enjoyed the food and it was usually quiet. We loved the steakhouse - ate there twice and requested the same girl the second night.

We booked excursions every day except the very last day - a 1/2 day in Kauai. First day we sat in the pool and hot tub. Found it to be enjoyable while everyone was ashore and then became crowded as folks came back from shore. Next time we'll do less excursions and more sleeping in and lounging by the pool drinking wonderful things from a pineapple.

We would take another cruise from NCL. While it wasn't the perfect thing we've heard from other cruisers, we were happy and the prices are very competitive.
