Ship Facts: Pride of America Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Pride of America Deck Plans
Our first ever cruise - loved Pride of America Cruise.
First my wife & I have have never been on a cruise. I guess our experience on POA will now change all that. In the past we tended to fly to our destination, rent a car, then explore the countryside. However, as we age, we now find we like others eg. shore excursion to do the driving & shows us things we could have missed out on.

We found the crew to be very friendly & helpful. The entertainment was excellent, they even had some very talented crew who performed their own show one night. However, the entertainers brought onto the ship in the latter part were extremely good. It was tribute to all the entertainers throughout the Hollywood period.

Didn't swim the ship pool - a bit on the small size, and lots of people drinking cocktails/beers etc whilst in the pool - always worried about urine in the pool, rather swim in the ocean.

We couldn't fault the meals. We enjoyed a meal in Little Italy on our last night.

The price of wine is higher than the mainland, but, hey your on a cruise.

The Aloha Cafe can be very busy with people each morning. Its a bit like a dodgem course. Some people seemed to be hell bent on getting that ice cream or last bit of cake. We tended to get our breakfast (cereal & tropical fruit - great stuff) then walked to the rear of the Aloha Cafe to the outside deck, called Aloha Cafe Lanai, just beautiful having breakfast whilst overlooking the ocean or port.
