Ship Facts: Pride of America Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Pride of America Deck Plans
Pride of America

A total of 15 family members attended this cruise with ages ranging from 3 years to 80 years old. Everyone enjoyed it! The evening shows were so-so, and the food tended to be on the salty side in the main dining areas, but the specialty restaurants were excellent! Jefferson's Bistro & Cagney's Steakhouse were the 2 our party attended.

The Cruise Director, Chris Martin, was energetic & friendly, continually asking how everyone was enjoying the cruise. The staff as a whole was very polite & professional. The entire ship was tastefully decorated.

We only did 1 shore excursion (on Maui), which was surfing in Lahaina. All attendees enjoyed themselves & were impressed with the instructors. Otherwise, we rented cars & made up our own itineraries. A helicopter ride in Kauai was the best way to see the entire island, although our ship did cruise past the Napali coast with an onboard narrated tour. Our Hawaiian Ambassadors were very informative and held special lei-making classes which were very popular.

Most of the children in our group attended Splash Academy, the children's camp, & liked the counselors. Upon returning to the ship after visiting the port of call, staff members had refreshing lemon water & cold towels available which were much appreciated! Before boarding the ship, we were entertained with dancers and each received a welcome lei, which was a nice gesture. Most major stores at each port had free shuttles.
