: Pride of America Cruise Review by PCoJorge
Overall Member Rating
To say we couldn't have picked a better time to arrange this cruise would be an understatement, as those leaving the islands to rush home to their holiday commitments, were not greeted by many making their way (YET) to the islands for the actual holiday(s). Thus, we found ourselves square in the middle of low lines, high spirits, and grand personal attention. DEFINITELY the time to be in Hawaii.
Because we were (to be) traveling with best friend/family members on-board the Pride of America, the first week there More allowed us to "get lost" on our own (a most pleasurable experience to be sure). Having rented a car, we took-in most of the Island of Oahu. And once our company arrived, we completed the personal tours -all four involved.
When boarding our ship, about to depart Honolulu, we were somewhat surprised to see all the food serving stations saran-wrapped, with all attendants serving the meals. Apparently, there had been a noted case of virus (considered contagion) aboard recently that warranted this action for at least the first three days from embarkation. Eventually, the wrappings were lifted and we were able to select our own portions, and at whatever entry point of interest/hunger.
With having visited four islands (Oahu, Maui, Hawaii, and Kauai), and five ports (Honolulu, Kahului, Kona, Hilo, Nawiliwili), we concluded our cruise back where we started, at Honolulu, with great experiences, wonderful memories, and genuine Aloha. Less
Cabin review: OC4500 Oceanview Picture Window
Tiny shower/bath facilities. Our location (mid-ship) was fine, as was the ocean view cabin. Cabin was small for our liking.Read All Oceanview Picture Window (OC) Reviews >>
