Hawaiian islands: Pride of America Cruise Review by chic8739
Overall Member Rating
We had breakfast every morning in the Lazy J Steakhouse which is reserved for the penthouse guests for breakfast and lunch. It is quiet, not crowded and the service and food is excellent. We ate at the Cadillac Diner several times, the Aloha cafe for dinner and mid day snacks and had a birthday dinner one night in Little Italy. All of the restaurants were excellent. There is something for everyone no matter what your taste is like.
The entertainment also is diverse enough that you should find something to occupy your leisure time on the ship. We spent quite a bit of time in Pink's Champagne Bar listening to a wonderful singer Pamela Stanley. She is a great singer and puts on a wonderful show. There are a variety of shows offered and many times we had to hurry from one venue to the next and ended up eating dinner at 10 pm in the Cadillac Diner.
The Internet access on the ship is pretty non existent, it is slow and very expensive. You can find wi-fi service while on shore if you need to but don't count on having it available on the ship. Apparently, that is pretty much how it is on all cruise ships not just the Pride of America.
After a wonderful week on the ship, it was time to say goodbye. That was a simple and quick disembarking process. We put our luggage outside our cabin by midnight on Friday night and it was delivered to our room at the Marriott Waikiki before we got to the hotel. We kept an over night bag with us with what we would need for Saturday and were off the ship with no problem by 9:15 Saturday morning. We were driven by bus to our hotel where we spent another 2 days in beautiful Hawaii.
The whole cruising experience was a delight. We're ready to go cruising again and we think to Alaska next time. Aloha. Less
Cabin review: SE10008 Penthouse with Large Balcony
Cabin 10008. Great penthouse with large balcony cabin. Large well appointed room with lots of storage space. The balcony is huge and not too windy. A nice space to sit and have a drink and visit with friends. Really nice cabin!Read All Penthouse with Large Balcony (SE) Reviews >>
