Pride of Aloha - Hawaii
Our room was perfect and clean and stayed that way for 7 days. Rowena was a wonderful cabin steward. We ate in the Crossings dining room most evenings and had two wonderful waiters. We asked for them by name once we realized how good they were. Randi and John are excellent. The other two evenings we tried Pacific Heights and the Bistro. We had excellent food every night of the More cruise. The lunch buffets were as I expect most buffets. The food is okay or average but you can find hamburgers, pizza, hotdogs, salad, and excellent desserts. Our one lunch in the dining room was a buffet but it had excellent choices. We only ate at the breakfast buffet which was average but if you want better, try the omelette or waffle line outside on deck. My husband tried both and found them excellent.
The three production shows were outstanding. We received outstanding service from Michael in the Plantation Bar on deck 12. On one of our many bus rides in Honolulu we met three soon to be crew members who were waiting to receive their maritime cards so that they could become part of the crew. They said NCL was putting them up in hotels and feeding them until they received their cards and were allowed to board. I am sure that this hold up is causing problems created when their aren't enough crew aboard to pamper everyone. Hopefully, they will be fully staffed soon. Less
