Hawaii has been one of my bucket list trips for a few years now so when I saw that I would have the opportunity to visit Hawaii doing one of the things I loved best...cruising, I took it. I have to admit that the interior room was smaller ... Read more

This cruise served its purpose that was to see Hawaii and be in port everyday. This ship does give you the advantage of not having to sail 4 days out at sea till you get to Hawaii. NCL has a nice business for themselves with this ship. ... Read more

I really loved this Cruise. It was our honeymoon and we picked this trip because we met 3 years ago on a Norwegian Cruise, from Miami, to the East Caribbean. The Guest Service gave us a wine and chocolates in the room and a botte of ... Read more

My husband and I have just returned from cruising the Hawaiian Islands. We did this cruise 17 years ago and were eager to repeat it. Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly. The ship is well appointed though our balcony cabin ... Read more

This cruise was a Christmas present (surprise) from my husband. We have cruised two times before but they were both with Royal Caribbean on Freedom of the Seas. I wasn't sure what to expect out of this cruise as I had read the ratings and ... Read more

I have taken over 30 cruises all over the world, of all sizes and prices, and the Pride of America is, without question, the worst ship I've ever been on. Here's why: Service is mediocre at best. Staff doesn't seem to care about the ... Read more

My hubby and I decided to go to Hawaii for our 35th wedding anniversary, and for him to have achieved his 50th state. We wanted to see the islands so decided on the Pride of America cruise since we didn't want to cruise from California. We ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and the time frame. The main dining room's poor service and cold un-appetizing entrees were only overshadowed by the excruciating lack of wine service protocol and knowledge of basic salad ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of the itinerary. We arrived a day early and stayed at the Ashton Waikiki . I booked the hotel through the cruise line and the hotel was in a good location but the hotel itself wasn't that nice. The ship was ... Read more

LOVED the freestyle version of cruising. So much less stressful! We spent a few days in Honolulu prior to embarkation, so we go to see Diamond Head, Pearl Harbor, lots of shopping, the Zoo, the Aquarium, and the beaches. That was a ... Read more

We had done this cruise with the family in January 2000. My youngest daughter was 5 years. She just graduated from college this year and we offered her a family vacation. She wished to do the Hawaiian Cruise once again. So, we took the ... Read more

We were invited by some friends to do this Hawaii cruise. We've never been on a cruise and have never been to Hawaii either. Both experiences were great. I loved cruising and I loved Hawaii. Would take this cruise with Norwegian all over ... Read more

This cruise was given to us as a gift! The ship was immaculate and the staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The port side balcony is a must especially if you cruise along the Napali coast; simply breathtaking. The ship's excursions ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary - not the ship or the cruise line. We had Room 10000 which was the front of the ship. Nice large room, and a balcony that spanned half the ship -- but one couldn't use most of it due to the ... Read more

This was my 1st cruise and I had severe reservations to the point I almost cancelled the trip, happily I didn't. My first surprise was the size of the cabin #4090. It was designed for wheelchair access and so was wider than all on Deck 4. ... Read more

Flying in from Sydney (Hawaiian Airlines very nice thank you) makes much more sense than cruising across half the Pacific first. Have cruised before on European rivers etc so this was our first "big boat" cruise. Can't say we ... Read more

We have been on several cruises always on the Princess line. We really enjoy cruises both for the different destination but also for the time on the ship. Unfortunately this time we were very disappointed. The destinations were great. ... Read more

Pride of America? Ha! No one was proud to be working on this ship and we certainly did not feel proud to be Americans after leaving. Our travel agent booked us our honeymoon to cruise around Hawaii on The Pride of America and I wish we had ... Read more

We were a pretty unusual demographic on this cruise-parents traveling with two "adult"(20 &23) children. The dominant demographic was by far was retired folks from 70-90 years of age (about 70%) from ALL over the world. Very ... Read more

I liked the idea of visiting four Hawaiian islands in seven days and cruising at night. Apparently Norwegian is the only cruise line that currently does this. Having a monopoly may help explain a lot. Firstly, I want to state that ... Read more

We wanted to see as much of Hawaii as possible without having to pack and unpack. I had read many negative reviews on this ship, however, we were pleasantly surprised. Embarkation was smooth. The ship, although fully booked, never ... Read more
