Not a great experience compared to other cruises

Sail Date: February 2014
Destination: Hawaii
Embarkation: Honolulu

The Pride of America is a ship that is kept clean which is a good point. There are some problems, however.

The staterooms are small and cramped compared to other cruises we have been on in the past. The service is hit and miss. The Skyline and Liberty dining rooms are very nice. Breakfast in the Skyline is very good and of good quality. The dinners in the same locations leave a lot to be desired. The menus, except for a couple of changes each night, are the same. Portions are small and quality in many cases (except soups) is

average to poor--tough steaks, pork chops that must have come from an old sow, etc. I guess the good food is in the specialty restaurants of which there are plenty--but costs extra. The entertainment, however was very good. Embarkation was a tedious process -lengthy lineups--could be better organized. Disembarkation was much better organized. NCL is the only line that travels to the other islands except for the cruises that start in North America More and have many days at sea. Less

Cabin review: 4028

Small but kept clean. A bit cramped but with good storage for its size. Watch your head when climbing in and out of bed--overhead beds may get in the way. Cabin steward does a good job in keeping it clean.
