Ship Facts: Norwegian Sky Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Sky Deck Plans
Pride of Aloha - Hawaii
Just returned yesterday from this cruise and a week at Waikiki beach. We did love the islands and Hawaii, but after saving for 2 years for a once in a lifetime trip, the cruise ship was disappointing. I have cruised before on Celebrity. There is no comparison. The Pride of Aloha had a very dirty food buffet. The hamburgers on deck were always cold, the hot dogs looked like they were days old. Service was very poor. When trying to book an excursion, we were told, No questions asked. Frozen drinks were often runny and melting. If you could even get service to buy a drink!

The beds were very hard and tough to sleep on. The room was cleaned every day to our satisfaction, and we did have some good candy waiting at night.

We tried to make it to dinner at 5:30 to avoid a long line. Still our party of eight ended up waiting a very long time for food, and it was often cold. The lobster we had on formal night was so overcooked we could barely chew it. Most of it was not eaten at all. One night we had a good steak, the next night it was like a completely different cut of meat.

The entertainment was so so, and it was really hard to get a drink in the theater.

I did enjoy the excursions I went on, and was happy to leave the dirty ship. Plates were left on deck with half eaten food for hours with no one cleaning them up. Wish I had taken pictures of the buffets, so unappetizing. We were told they were very short staffed due to people quitting, and also that they would improve. But what good does that do to people who have been on the cruise and are leaving?

Our money is gone and we are disappointed! Would not recommend this cruise. Stay at a resort and island hop.
