Ship Facts: Pride of America Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Pride of America Deck Plans
Great ports - ship and crew just ok
We stayed at the Malie Sky Court for one night. This place is a little frayed around the edges but a good value if your just crashing. Staff was helpful, friendly and efficient.

Boarded the ship around 2 PM. Regular check in line was long, but we are latitudes members and there was no line,we where aboard in 10 minutes.

Cabins were ready when we boarded and we proceeded to our aft balcony.

All was good but the the shower is minuscule. Our balcony door would only open ten inches and then would get stuck. You had to close it and start again to get it to open so you could fit through. You would think the steward would of reported that to maintenance since he's out there every day cleaning...or at least is supposed to be. Speaking of our steward he was no where to seen for the first three days. Our beach towels were never replaced and we had to chase him down for them everyday. We never could get ice from him, room service or housekeeping.

This cruise has a different vibe from the other seven cruises we have done.

It's port intensive and we did not go to one show.

The mostly American crew left a bit to be desired in my opinion.

Dining in the MDR was hit or miss as the staff looked like they were being trained...on my dime. This was easily the most lackluster service we have ever experienced on any cruise.


The ship was scheduled to be refurbished before our sailing but this was pushed back...it defiantly needs it.

The eye candy of Hawaii did not disappoint and we had pretty good weather and a fun time in all of them. The traffic on all the islands can be tedious, but with GPS and rental car we covered a lot of ground and saw lots of amazing sights. The ports however are industrial, loud and busy. If I never hear another backup beeper again it will be too soon.

We had a good time. The crew and ship was just ok. We did it once and that was enough.

Any questions or comments?
