Pride of Aloha - Hawaii: Norwegian Sky Cruise Review by Linda Simmons

Pride of Aloha - Hawaii
Disembarkation is called "at your leisure" which translates to you go when they tell you. We made the mistake of letting the cruise line book our flight, and being from Arizona we wanted to see the memorial in Honolulu. We were scheduled back on a 2:00 p.m. flight; which allowed us no time for that excursion. Our travel agent said we could switch flight time for $50 each. Don't think so; I've already spent more than I care to mention. So we left the ship at 9:20 a.m. to the most disorganized system in Honolulu I have ever seen. No one there from the cruise line to help you find the shuttle bus to the airport; we all were walking in circles. Most people we spoke to were very unhappy with the end of the trip. After a long wait at the airport, we boarded United from Honolulu to Los Angeles. Then a small plane from Los Angeles to Phoenix. We got home, but our luggage didn't. Didn't get it until 7:30 the next night. That's a whole other issue with United. Overall, terribly disappointed in the cruise. We would go again, on another cruise line, but we will never cruise anywhere on NCL. Nor would I recommend this cruise to anyone. If you are going to cruise the islands, do it with any one other than Pride of Aloha. They simply don't care about their customers. Less
First time cruising NCL on Nor...
