We were attending an insurance convention in Oahu, and wanted an easy way to visit multiple Hawaiian islands without having to repeatedly fly and unpack. Our last cruise was on our honeymoon, a few decades ago, so we went in with no real ... Read more

My wife and I, both in our late 50’s, cruised Hawaii on the PoA the second week of September. We traveled with 5 relatives and friends around our age. We’ve cruised 22 times on multiple lines although our “go-to” ... Read more

This is a ship built in 2005 and has been refurbished several times. Whilst it looks clean there are many areas where it needs attention. Embarkation - A long winded process that makes you feel like you are at a disney world in line for ... Read more

The ship is clean and well loved by its keepers. Because the ship does not have a casino and as a result of reading poor food and entertainment reviews, my thought was to book this cruise as a floating hotel to reach all of the important ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we felt it was the best way for us to see the islands. At first after reading reviews for 6 months prior to actually sailing we were not sure of what our accommodations were going to be like. As it turned out ... Read more

For my husband and I this was our first 'big ship' cruise [our previous cruises were less than 800 passengers]. so we were a little apprehensive but we thoroughly enjoyed it. We have no complaints about the variety & quality of the ... Read more

We needed a trip for our 13 year old grand sons birthday, Hawaii and this cruise seemed like a good idea. It was. The only drawback is the flight, non stop JFK to HNL was close to 11 hours going, over 9 hours return. Hawaiian Air had ... Read more

Never been to Hawaii and did not want to spend many days at sea. We booked the owners suite with a large balcony and we were treated like royalty. We ate breakfast every morning in Cagneys and the food was great. We also ate dinner in ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the opportunity to cruise the Hawaiian Islands. Initially, we were a little skeptical concerning the Pride of America based upon the many negative reviews we read on Cruise Critic. However, once we embarked on ... Read more

We chose this cruise through icruise.com. The service was excellent! The food was more than adequate. Skyline Restaurant was fantastic with their service and host and hostess. We had no problem making a reservation for a table for ... Read more

Food on this ship was not edible. Even the waiters agreed. There was an upcharge for 1/2 of the menu. This all inclusive cruise charged extra for everything--most entrees (except in buffet), coffees other than regular and decaf, gelato, ... Read more

Choose this cruise because of the destination it offered. It was a 7 night cruise starting and ending in Hawaii without endless days at sea. Have been on many other cruises with other cruise lines. Was disappointed with this ... Read more

As most people do, I think, my wife and I somewhat rely on the reviews of the experiences people have had with topics like these. From the beginning of our researching we legitimately noticed a consensus of reviews about the Hawaiian ... Read more

Overall excellent cruise! The crew was very good throughout. There were only a couple of things I noted that weren't quite up to par but it didn't stop us from having an excellent, once in a lifetime cruise. The first was the cabin shower. ... Read more

Pros: First time on a cruise and had an overall great experience with NCL. Booked a guaranteed balcony at a discounted rate and ended up with a large balcony stateroom (7008), which was nice! Housekeeping (Ms. Amy) was very friendly ... Read more

.It seems petty to start off by telling you that the noise level, especially at 5:00AM, is way too loud in the Cadillac diner. Of that beach towels were sometimes not replaced in our cabin. Or even that virtually every one of our dinner ... Read more

We planned and looked forward to this cruise for some time. What a disappointment!!! Cabin dirty; lots of crumbs on floor, thank goodness we had a balcony because ALL the windows were DIRTY preventing you from enjoying the scenery. ... Read more

This is the only Hawaiian cruise that does not start from the west coast. That way we won't have to add extra sea days crossing the Pacific. Unfortunately, this ship has an American crew and therefore the service is not as good as the ... Read more

Overall this was a great cruise, particularly for first-timers to Hawaii because it provides a quick look at all the major islands. For context, this was our fist time cruising Norwegian - our previous cruises (3) were all on Carnival. ... Read more

We did this cruise on the Pride of Hawaii 10 years ago and loved every minute of it. The ship was never crowded except during embarkation which is pretty normal. They were very organized during disembarkation and it wen smooth. The food ... Read more

It has been 30 years since we'd been to Hawaii for our honeymoon. In that span of time we have taken many cruises in different parts of the world and felt that a cruise would be a great way to see the islands this time around. NCL's Pride ... Read more

The overall experience was good. The buffet was overwhelming and not enough seats for everyone plus your food was cold by the time you picked out everything and found a seat. Dinner in the actual restaurants was better. I think it ... Read more
