Stayed in Honolulu for 3 days before the cruise at the Waikiki Marriott. The hotel was on the beach, had wonderful views and was nice and clean. There were at least 2 pools and a poolside grill with live music. The elevators were fast. ... Read more

Restaurant dining only gives you a few complimentary choices. Anything else on the menu is about $25. Not good enough. Princess is all inclusive except for speciality restaurants. Service poor. Soft drink packages $55 plus tax, plus ... Read more

Our family consisted of myself, husband and 23 year old daughter. Visiting Hawaii has been on our bucket list for over ten years. To say, I have been planning for this trip is an understatement- so our expectations for this trip were ... Read more

We have always wanted to go to Hawaii, and time it worked out! We were on the 12th cruise after the March 2016 refurbishment. On 6/18/2016, I started a thread on the Norwegian Cruise Line (Pride of America subforum) titled “Pride ... Read more

This cruise leaves and returns from Honolulu and you get a taste of the 4 major Hawaiian islands which is great. Suggestion is to rent a car and do your own thing since the cruise line excursions are VERY expensive. Food is very good too ... Read more

Great destination, horrible cruise! Food was dismal. Entertainment was not. Whole party of 6 got sick. 3 had food poisoning. Doctor was never there. Everything was expensive. Drinks were $7 but wound up $12 after fees. Poor organization ... Read more

I don't know how anyone could give this cruise a bad review. Yes, be prepared to spend some money, but it's a once in a lifetime trip (may be twice). We were on our honeymoon (2nd marriage at 53). We were in cabin 9094 (mid ship balcony). ... Read more

We upgraded the day before we cruised to a suite with a large balcony. Stayed in 13510; what an amazing room. There were three of us, which included our teenage daughter. The space was worth the extra money. There were plenty of ... Read more

My wife and I had never visited Hawaii and thought this Hawaii-only cruise would be a good way to see it for the first time. We were lucky to be joined by two other couples who are good friends and also wanted to see the islands. We were ... Read more

Four of us (60 -70 year olds) just completed a wonderful 7-night cruise of the Hawaiian island aboard the Pride of America. This was my first NCL cruise. The trip was wonderful and the ship is as others have said, a hotel. Little time ... Read more

Pride of America is a great way to see Hawaii. However, the ship itself and NCL failed to meet expectations. Boarding was a farce. We have sailed from 6 ports and always were able to drop off our luggage before getting in line to check ... Read more

We booked the cruise to go with friends celebrating a birthday. The company was the best part of the cruise. There was no problem boarding the ship. The cabin, though set up incorrectly, was fine especially after them correcting the ... Read more

Cabins not for the claustrophobic. A MRI capsule is larger than the shower space. Witnessed a manager/supervisor chastising worker/server on 2 separate occasions, needless behavior in front of guests. After manager left, server went ... Read more

We chose this cruise simply because it was the ship that gave us the most time on the islands of Hawaii. By spending four days on Oahu flying in we visited four of the eight main Hawaiian Islands. We were pleasantly surprised to find the ... Read more

We absolutely loved this cruise! We had not traveled with NCL before but chose this cruise because it had been recommended to us by friends. Also we wanted to see the Hawaiian Islands and didn't know which islands to visit. It was an ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to see the volcanic islands and visit the Macadamian nuts factory. We wanted to see how others live on this part of America. We learned a lot about the various islands, vegetations, animals and most ... Read more

We got to Hawaii a day before our cruise ship was leaving port and took advantage of this extra day to visit Pearl Harbor. It was worth the extra day. Both embarkation and disembarkation @ NCL went very well and quickly. The Pride of ... Read more

We wanted to travel between the islands without flying so this was the only thing available. The ship itself is lovely. Embarkation and disembarkation went very well. Our issues were more with the staff. Our cabin was adequate but we ... Read more

Overall, this is a nice cruise. Hawaii is the star, and the ship is a convenient hotel to see the volcanoes, waterfalls, beaches and lush greenery of the four islands we visited. As five-time cruisers on several lines, we rate this ship ... Read more

We had 8 family members (all adults) desiring to go on an inter-island Hawaii cruise, so the Pride of America was the only choice to do that without also adding a foreign port. We just got back from the cruise. All of us totally ... Read more

I have been to Hawaii numerous times. We were going with relatives who had never been to Hawaii, thus a cruise seemed a perfect way for them to see several islands in one week. Princess and HAL lEaVe only from the mainland with far too ... Read more

Having cruised over 10 times, this is the worst cruise I have ever experienced. Paid top dollar and it wasn't worth the money. With the exception of a handful of people, staff was rude and lazy, inexperienced and slow wait staff (over an ... Read more
