This is our second 15 day trip to Hawaii on Princess and I must say that the first on 10 years ago outshines this by far in the food area! Not sure what happened here, but everything in this area was sub standard this time around. The crew was phenomenal as usual, not much to add here. They do their very best to make sure you are have what you need/want at all times. Our cabin staff was amazing as usual, and having just come from dry dock, the beds and linens were very nice. I felt that the time on the ship at sea days stretched out to very long days of everyone on board trying to sell us something at every turn. It got wearing at times, gone are the days of the group activities and contest that they used to have on board. If you want to pay for activities and stand in line to hopefully get a ticket to participate, oh and then if they have enough supplies when it is your turn, yeah it is like that. So, not impressed at all, and will not be taking this cruise again ever. We will continue to fly over to the islands and enjoy our time there. One last item that we feel is important to mention, this is a very geriatric set of cruisers. After talking with several crew members this is like this day in and day out. There were several medical emergencies on board, and we even had to turn the ship around on the first evening to have an emergency evacuation of a cruiser. So if you do not have the patience to deal with very slow moving, sometime crabby, older people-this is not the cruise for you. The embarkation and disembarkation was the easiest we have ever had on any cruise we have been on in the last 15 years. Goodbye for now Princess, we will be trying other cruise lines that offer more exciting daily activities as well as newer food options. Read Less

With retirement nearing, we (my wife and I) choose this cruise to better understand the experience of 4 or 5 sea days in a row (we are considering some extended cruises in the future), as well as the experience of travelling with a group with a signficant amount of retirees. We have previously spent some time in the Islands (via air), so site seeing was not our main priority. Princess has been our choice for cruising for some time, and this trip did not disappoint. The service, food and entertainment were a good value for the money. In fact, we found the entertainment to be noticeably more appealing than on some of our recent Princess cruises. Our one quibble was that each photograph now costs $25.00 each- which seemed high to us. The ship was newly refurbished and we appreciated the enhancements- both in the cabin and around the ship. Some of the little touches, such as a place beside your bed to charge your iPhone, showed us that Princess really cares about staying competitive. (Note: I do own CCL common stock, and have so for many years). As mentioned earlier, sightseeing was not our primatry objective, but we did take Princess tours on the big island and the garden island. We did attend the onboard lectures by Sharon, which were very informative, and very well done. Read Less

Hawaii cruise We have sailed many times before and so wanted to go to Hawaii We now live in Costa Blanca Spain and travelled Via Las Vegas for the new year so there were many filghts and days involved to reach our enbarcation point at San Pedros' Pier Los Angeles. We are now Platinum level with Princess cruises with the appropriate badges but we failed to recieve correct instructions to board the ship and had to trail around making further inquiries in order to get aboard quickly. Once aboard we found our stateroom and soon after one of our cases and one other with our name on but was not ours we informed the cabin attendant who removed the wrongly place case and thought that our case would soon arrive after several hours waiting for it I had to go to the reception deck to inquire about it. My suitcase,properly named and tagged was in a large pile of other suitcases going nowhere it would seem that you would have to go,as i did, to collect your own. Aged 77, and having travelled halfway around the world, the last thing you want to do is drag your suitcase around a very large ship whilst all the time thinking is this what you get in the Platinum grade Do it yourself ! On arriving in our stateroom we were surprised not to find a Princess Patter which tell you what's on and where to go, when I inquired I was told it was on an app no mention of this in the cabin or elsewhere, also there was not a small diagram of the ship deck layout and which had been handed out on prevoius Princess ships so again I had to go and ask. Princess do not now give receipts for drinks purchases and therefore no signing occurs I was waiting for my final bill statement to arrive on our last night in order to check it, this did not happen, no statement given, out so you do not know what you are being charged for. On my arrival back home I have made inquiries about my bill and as yet have not received an answer. Please be aware of this fact on your last night and print your bill as nobody will tell you and you will get no response to your enquiries. We enjoyed the ship, entertainment, and the cruise but booked shore excursions with other agents as we now find they are better value for money. This was the first time that we have had such a troublesome boarding and no final account on any previous cruise ship. We have sailed on the Regal Princess and everything was just wonderful so we will be using Princess cruises again and hoping for better things. Read Less

This was our second cruise in the Grand Princess (and 13th on Princess). Overall we were very pleased, but of course there were some concerns. THE GOOD: -- excellent cabin steward; very helpful as we prepared to host a cocktail party; great attitude -- superb entertainment, as is usual for Princess -- service in the dining room was excellent - attentive and prompt -- enjoyed meals in both specialty restaurants -- the daily LGBT gatherings were fun, with over 20 folks a couple of times; fun to meet people from across the country -- the variety of excursions offered on the four Hawaiian Islands was good. We loved the submarine dive in Maui. -- the New Years Eve parties were a lot of fun -- although a water leak in the 14th level Horizons Court closed half of it for most of the cruise, the dining staff responded well and opened other dining rooms for added hours to compensate, resulting in a minimum of inconvenience for the passengers THE NEGATIVES: -- the ship was always cold! Not just cool, but so cold that folks were wearing jackets to the shows and lounges. The first night our cabin would not get above low 60's - maintenance adjusted the settings as we were comfortable the rest of the cruise. -- food in the main dining room was not as good as on previous cruises (fish was overcooked and dry) -- young children screaming during dinner in the specialty restaurants really detracted from what was otherwise a very nice experience. I would love to see a policy of no babies (perhaps under 2) in the surcharged restaurants -- I did not like the Latin focused ballroom dancing lessons, much preferring traditional ballroom that I have enjoyed on previous Princess cruises -- although we have enjoyed days at sea in the past, including trans-Atlantic crossings, with ten days at sea (four over and six coming back (with a four-hour stop in Ensenada) became too many days out of a fifteen-day cruise. We will certainly cruise with Princess again, and even on the Grand Princess since it remains based in San Francisco and is very convenient for us. Read Less

This was a family trip chosen by other family. After reading reviews I was optimistically hopeful and for my second time in Hawaii, I thought it was a great way to see as much as possible. Day 1: The Welcome is everything you expect of a cruise ship, smiling, friendly faces all happy to have you aboard. Day 2: That's all over, you're now a captive audience and have no where to go and service is no longer a priority. 3 Hour Dinners, that were not worth the wait, 90 minute late night snacks at the overstaffed non attentive all night diner. Only item on limited menu worth getting is the 25-30 minute burger unless you are the cruise director or staff. When asking about details of a menu item, you can get a response like I'm not sure what is on it other than the description, but if you don't like it, you can order something else". What kind of response is that? Being the only ship allowed to cruise "just" Hawaiian islands we found out it is more a detriment than the exception to the rule. We were told by a key staff member due to that reason a specific percentage of employees must be US citizens thus inferring issues with being able to hire great staff. In the mornings we would be given tidbits of what to see on each island (always starting off with the same 3-5 vendors) then some key sites to see. The problem with this is that we took the maps with us and drove like crazy to see as many sights as possible including one beach that we were told we had to see, but what the hostess on the ship failed to mention was that it was landlocked by US military stations and inaccessible through the 3 different GPS routes we tried to take losing almost 2 hours of our limited time on that island. The ship has a daily newsletter that must be printed out prior to each cruise as the weather was always wrong for every day, so check your own weather apps before going ashore. The off shore excursions are extremely inflated for price, you are much better off and can afford to do so much more if you check ahead. For example, the last day they make it sound so convenient to take a $140/pp trip to Pearl Harbor and they will store your luggage, transport you there and get you to the airport. If you store your luggage for 5$/bag at the pier, go outside the pier gates and get one of the competing shuttles to Pearl Harbor for $5 early. You get the Pearl Harbor early to get one of the free tickets that they give out in the morning until they run out. When your done, get another shuttle $5 -$10 (we always got $5) down to Waikiiki beach for lunch and $10 back to the pier to get luggage and to the airport. We got a whole day in for less than half of the cost of that trip as a convenient ship excursion. Our cabin steward was great, very attentive and responsive. The comedian and illusionist were great, the remaining entertainment was typical cruise type fill in the gaps options. You could never understand the announcements on the pool deck or the entire ship as the speaker system muffled everything. The ship could be going down and you not know b/c you can't decipher the messages Read Less

The good.................................... Food in the dining rooms was very good, especially liked the Liberty. Also dined at Teppanyaki, Jefferson Bistro and Cagney’s. Only did the Specialty dining because it came with our purchase at Costco. The Specialty dining was good, but the Aloha(morning buffet), Skyline and Liberty completely met our needs. Coffee is available early at 0530 in the Gold Rush Saloon. Ate once at Cadillac and liked it. Great service and attitude on the part of the staff/crewmembers. No sign of random rudeness mentioned in other reviews. Cabins were clean and comfortable. We had a balcony and really liked it. Cabin 9568 is a great location. Entertainment was very good most nights, but didn’t care for the first night that well. Embarkation went smooth. Disembarkation was handled well. We were allowed to stay on the ship until 0845 or so. Our flight did not leave until 6:00PM. There is Luggage Storage in the Cruise Facility that allows you to store a piece of luggage for $5 for the entire day. We then did a walking tour of old Honolulu and Chinatown which are a 10 minute walk from the cruise terminal. Especially interesting is the Aloha Clock Tower one block from the Terminal. Take the elevator to the 10th floor and you get a great view of the Honolulu area, the Cruise ship, and other sights. Cruise Sights. I can’t think of a better way to see the islands. The cruise is basically a floating hotel, restaurant and entertainment facility. Excursions. We did not take any of the Excursions that came with the cruise. Instead we rented a car and saw all of the same sights for about 70% less. Example, Road to Hana, a tour costs $169/person. My wife and I rented a car for $57(that includes gas and insurance). Same deal in all of the other islands. Also, each car rental company has a shuttle that meets you at the cruise terminal and returns you to the ship at the end of the day. In Maui, on our second day, we took the city bus to the west side of the island for the day, cost us $10 each. Pick up the bus next to Macy’s in the shopping center 1.2 miles from the cruise terminal. There is no bus station there, but a lady in a yellow jacket sitting on a chair sells the tickets. Disappointments 1. Our Kona stop was cancelled due to high seas. I do not fault NCL for this. However, our Captain said we would instead cruise by Maui, Lanai, Molokai, and Oahu on our way to Kauai. This did not happen. He got to within 5 miles of our first island, then went 30 miles out to sea away from all islands, and did not explain why he did this. 2. My biggest disappointment was I assumed that we would cruise to within a mile or 2 of the coast of all these islands, and we would sit on our balcony and enjoy the scenery. We did not!!! We were always 5-7 miles from coast so the islands were mostly a blur in the distance, especially Kauai, one of the most beautiful islands on the planet. An exception was the Na Pali coast where he kept 2 miles offshore, still too far away. Very, very disappointing. Read Less

This was our first cruise but definitely not our last. The Pride of America is a beautiful ship. They have everything you could possible need on board. Our room was excellent. Much more roomy than we anticipated and the bed was super comfortable.So glad we got a balcony so we could watch the ship coming into port and we got spectacular views of the Napali coast in Kauai. The entire ship is spotless. It was like staying in a beautiful hotel. The food was excellent, from the Aloha buffet to the Cadillac Café, Moderno, La Cucina, Liberty Dining room and Cagney’s Steak House. The service and food were phenomenal! Top notch! Fitness center had way more equipment than expected and was just as good as our gym. The entertainment was fantastic, particularly the magician, the comedian and singer Toby Beau. We really enjoyed all the entertainment they offered. The pool area was great and they had a few BBQ’s for passengers. The excursions they offer are wonderful. We were happy with each one we chose. Getting on and off the ship is easy and security is tight which made us feel secure. The waters between the islands can be a bit rough and the ship did rock a little but we both found we slept better than ever with the boat rocking us to sleep. Overall the staff was fantastic. There were multiple daily announcements about the day’s activities. Special recognition to John from Ottowa in the Waikiki lounge. We had a great hockey conversation with him; very friendly and knowledgeable. We missed the lecture about how the ship runs so John gave us an overview and answered all our questions. It’s remarkable how this ship is organized. Also, another shout out to David from Long Beach. He was our server for Thanksgiving dinner in the Liberty Dining room. His service was excellent and he was just a super nice guy. Finally, we’d like to thank our head housekeeper Annabelle who took excellent care of us. She made our trip more comfortable and enjoyable. We were blown away by our first cruise and so glad we chose NCL Read Less

I've only been on one other cruise before and it was Royal Caribbean or Princess (honestly can't remember) back in 2004 for my senior trip. We visited Cozumel, the Cayman Islands and Key West. It was a nice, 3-4 day trip but nothing like our most recent cruise. NCL's Pride of America was a solid vacation, mainly because we finally met people our own age a few days in. PoA only has one area on the ship to smoke (the Waikiki Bar, deck 13, aft) and honestly it's the most laid back, chill area of the ship complete with great views. You end up talking to the "regulars" and we made a few legit friends that we kept in touch with after we got back home. The bartenders (Gabby and David) turned a good vacation into a great vacation and kept my husband and I sane on a boat (erm ship) where our age group made up maybe 20% of the population. They recommended some local bars to hit when we were in port overnight and they did not disappoint. The cruise director, Jasper, was also extremely nice and just an overall fantastic person. NCL's staff was the best part of this trip, hands down. It is extremely regimented like a well oiled machine and they were some of the nicest, most down-to-earth people we met. The ports were well planned out and although we only had one full day of sun, we made the best of every day we had. We went hiking, visited the Keck Observatory, hit some botanical gardens and enjoyed a few local breweries. The ship itself was small compared to other ones I've seen/been on but you wouldn't be able to tell unless you're the person who spends most of their money on the ship doing ship things. My only real complaint is that NCL's Pride of America doesn't allow you to purchase any photos their photographers take on board after your cruise has ended. So basically...unless you remember to hit Guest Services on your way out, you're kinda screwed. I did not find this out until after we got home. Bummer. All things considered I'd give it an 7.5/8 outta 10. Read Less

We went to Hawaii on the Star Princess & had the best time! They do Hawaiian cultural crafts, hula & ukelele classes. The captain was amazing! He visited the passengers daily shaking hands, doing crafts & even went on a few excursions! Best captain ever & the crew loved him! Snorkeling was pretty good as well! The food was exquisite & just wonderful! Entertainment was great with Tiki dave & Leialoha! Even got to practice hula in atrium in evenings with Leialoha! They are amazing!!! We are doing this same cruise in 2019 with family again! If you want a rental car in Maui, reserve one in advance or you won't be able to get one! They're really limited on rentals.. The Banyun Tree in Maui is amazing! There was one snorkeling tour that was more about sightseeing than snorkeling from Princess that was a waste! We complained but they didn't care! It was very disappointing to us as we love to snorkel! Will do some off Princess snorkeling tours next time instead.... Very disappointed about that!!! Read Less

While I enjoyed this cruise, there were a number of things where Princess could improve their performance. I found the food to be a big disappointment in the main dining room. Too often, my plate was full of food that was bland and colorless. Presentation could definitely be improved. I also found that the entertainment in the evenings in the Princess Theater was often not very good. There were 2 comedians on successive nights, a guitarist who was very talented, but could use some lessons in political correctness for today, and the production shows that were excellent but much too short. The ship is older but in fairly good condition. Signage could be a bit better, but after a couple of days I was able to find my way around ok. Our cabin was comfortable, especially the bedding. However, the shower is minuscule, and I can’t imagine how some of the larger passengers managed. The ports were great, but we would have loved fewer sea days and more time in port at all of them, except for Ensenada. Four hours there were plenty! As for shore excursions, we booked one through Princess and two through Viator. For the money, I’d go with Viator anytime. They offered some excursions that Princess did not as well as some that were identical for a much lower price. And they offer a guarantee of returning you to the ship in time or paying to get you to your next port, so it’s a win-win, in my opinion. I have cruised on other cruise lines that do a much better job of their Anytime Dining. On Princess they call it Anytime Dining, but on formal nights if you don’t call for a reservation by 8:00 am, you will be standing in line for a long time to get in. Also, it would be nice if, on formal nights, they would designate 1 of the 3 dining rooms as an alternative, non-formal option for those of us who prefer not to haul formal clothes on vacation but don’t want to eat at the buffet or spend extra money on a specialty restaurant. On the plus side, our cabin steward was new to Princess and he was outstanding. Also, the bedding was very comfortable and I slept great every night. Read Less

Recommended by friends and we were not disappointed. We found the ship to be brilliant with superb accommodation in a balcony stateroom. The food was outstanding and a wide choice. Entertainment was brilliant with top acts and dancers. We were entertained with comedians, dance acts and a variety of musical acts. The ship sails at night and arrives in port every morning ready for disembarkation. This is a brilliant way to see all the Hawaiian islands with shore excursions ready to choose from on board, or make your own plans onshore. This is by far the best cruise we have taken. The big island was a favourite with a visit to Volcanoes National Park the highlight of the trip. This day was followed by a night time cruise by the coast where active lava flows into the sea. From embarkation on day 1 in Honolulu to the various ports the security was necessary but quick. Read Less

First time to Vancouver, on Norwegian, and to Hawaii for our 25th wedding anniversary. I highly recommend this cruise and itinerary; It was a grand slam for those following October baseball right now. Embarkation a little slow but the disembark was VERY efficient and smooth. (Though we really didn't want to leave!) Entertainment was the best we have ever experienced on a cruise ship. Loved our ocean balcony cabin and room. Dining was outstanding particularly in the specialty restaurants Cagney's, Moderno Churrascaria (Brazilian Steakhouse), and Le Bistro. Weaker links were the Italian specialty dining (not the food per se but the menu) and O'Sheehans, though I liked the atmosphere in the latter especially for watching Sunday NFL football. The service on the ship everywhere was good to outstanding and we liked very much the different themed bars. We only did one of the Norwegian shore excursions, The Road to Hana Deluxe, and that was magnificent and informative. We went on other island excursions on our own or with other tour groups we contracted with once off the boat. We loved them all - in some cases we got better bargains. Rented a car to Laihana the second day in Maui and enjoyed it without being committed to being on a bus all day. Spent time in Honolulu afterward and did our own tours including Pearl Harbor. We will definitely go back to Vancouver, to Hawaii (we added a timeshare to our existing one stateside!), and very much look forward to cruising again on Norwegian. Though once you do this particular cruise, you will realize 5 days at sea in the Pacific is a bit much to repeat a second time through. We wished they had an indoor pool and thank God we got the spa plan which overlooked the ocean and was VERY relaxing. When we go back, I think we will just do a Hawaii tour and schedule a Vancouver BC / Calgary Banff Canadian trip as a separate vacation. Still, it is more than worth experiencing once. Thank you, Norwegian! Read Less

This cruise was selected by another family member, but we all felt the same way and will not be cruising Norwegian again. Check in was exceedingly slow, even though we had checked in "online" in advance. Our individual was typing with one finger at a time, we'd had a long flight and were tired. All decks were called as being ready before ours at least an hour before ours and by the time we finally got to go to our room at 4:30, we immediately had to leave for a fire drill. Cabin steward was not receptive to notes to leave for replacement items (soft drink replacement from the mini-bar, ice, a replacement for an empty lotion -- of which you get one at the beginning of the week and that's it). They fail to tell you until the night before that there is a tender which transfers you from the boat to the port because the ship is too big to dock. This was a problem because we had an excursion booked and individual with limited ability to ascend the 12 steps to the tender, rather than be able to wheel them directly out a ramp. A lot of sections of the ship required considerable pushing to get a wheelchair over a hump. An elevator got stuck with us inside for a few minutes when trying to disembark in one port and we were unable to take the stairs down due to mobility issues. You are literally charged for everything, even after paying a hefty price for cabin and meals. Extra charge for "specialty' restaurants, mandatory 18% gratuities on everything, all alcoholic drinks and soft drinks (which we expected because it's a great money maker for them), photos, USB drives for the photos, etc. Shops are highly overpriced for American products which can be obtained in the American ports. Daily service charge per room, per person of almost $15 which is alleged to be used as "incentive pay" for employees, on top of the 18% mandatory gratuity, and on receipts there is yet another line for you to add a "tip." One bartender told us that the reason they started charging the 18% was because non-Americans don't tip. Non-Americans don't tip because good service is should be expected for the prices already charged. You are basically paying the employees wages with the service charges and gratuities so the ship's company can make more profit. There is a huge marketing push to book another cruise and obtain their credit card. Wine is $42 a bottle minimum, beer is $8, soft drink can is $3.51. And, of course, you can't bring any of that onboard with you. Disembarking is a nightmare with only two elevators which go down all the way to the gangway and 2,000+ people trying to exit at a port at any given time. Elevators are extremely slow with some pre-determined computerized attempt to service, which skips floors altogether, or opens it's doors with a semi-full load of 5 or 6 people and then indicates it's overloaded, even if the elevator claims it can take 13 people. I don't know what they consider when they estimate an individuals weight to come up with the number of people it can hold. The cabin appears to be smaller than cabins we've been in on other ships, even though we had an upper deck more expensive one with a balcony. The entertainers at shows were actually great. Service desk could use some work as twice we were provided wrong directions and wrong areas to report to. Our cabin steward could use some tweaking, others didn't have the same problem with theirs -- but it might explain why our deck was the last one ready so much later than the other decks. Bartenders were always pleasant. Assistance with wheelchair disembarking at final stop left us as the last five passengers on the ship quite some time after all passengers had left. And while we weren't expecting special privileges, we had been told that they would be happy to help us. There is a certain lack of empathy or accommodation when it came to our particular party. While the food in the East to West Asian restaurant was very good, the matre d' appeared somewhat snobbish towards us. Our age group ranged from 35-80 and we come from a large family. We will not recommend this cruise to any of our family or friends. Maui did not have many excursions available and not much to see in the port we were in; you were required to take the taxis as they were lined up (I thought this was an American cruise and we could choose who we wanted?) If you want to take an Uber or Lyft driver, you literally have to walk half a mile to get to them. Another huge inconvenience if you have anyone in a wheelchair. The stay there is too long considering the lack of available off-ship entertainment options. Kona does not dock at a pier, but you have to transfer from a tender and then wait 30-45 minutes in mostly sun to reboard for a return trip. NOT wheelchair or elderly friendly. Nawiliwili is the best port, with the best excursions (don't book them through the ship excursions; at this port at least you can be picked up right outside a decently short walk terminal.) Hilo is okay, but expensive excursions. Read Less

This cruise offers the best way to see the Hawaiian islands in one trip. Great itinerary that enabled us to meet our objective. However, the ship was dated and could have used a little more maintenance, The food was average, at best. Nickel and dimed us to death. Excursions were over-priced and only one out of the three we went on met our expectations. We had better luck booking excursions on our own rather than through NCL On Maui we rented a car for $30 a day and saw everything we wanted to see at a fraction of the cost if we had booked tours through NCL. By the way, many of the excursions were run by affiliates of NCL Entertainment, except for the comedian, was poor. Lots of complaining among passengers. However, the ship was clean and staff was very friendly and helpful. All in all, if you want to see several islands in one trip, I would recommend this cruise for that reason only. Read Less

My husband and I flew into Seattle two nights before departing Seattle on the NCL Jewel for a 10-night Alaskan cruise to celebrate our anniversary and my birthday. We packed 3 medium size suitcases and one large suitcase anticipating really cold temps in Alaska with layering clothes and warm winter boots. We did the 10-hour tour by Northwest which included a tour to the Boeing Airplane Factory. We really enjoyed this tour of the Seattle downtown and surrounding areas including the Salmon fish ladder at Ballard Locks and Dam. NCL embarkation went very smoothly. We arrived at the pier about 1030, dropped off our luggage, and stood in line to get our cabin card assigned, then sat waiting for our boarding group to be called. We were boarded and having lunch by 1:00pm at the Garden Cafe. NCL Jewel left port in Seattle around 4pmish on Saturday 23 Sep 2017. Our cabin was 10528, a balcony cabin, close to elevators. The room and balcony were kept clean during our 10-night cruise. Our cabin steward was a young lady (Wuan One sp?) who sang happy birthday to me and made me a cake out of a towel, flowers and sparkly confetti. Very sweet of her!! Cabin furnishings were showing wear and tear; recommend to NCL to refurbish within the year. Electronics for cabin need to be updated as well. The food was great at each of the complimentary restaurants except for the Chin Chin. We ate there the last evening and ordered Kung Pao chicken, steamed rice and spring rolls. The chicken was very tough, the sauce tasted old. Rice and spring rolls were good. I experienced extreme gas for several hours afterwards and frequent trips to bathroom. Maybe their other dishes are better. Entertainment and activities were outstanding. Something for everyone throughout the day even when in port. Alaska was beautiful (Skagway, Juneau, Sitka, Ketchikan, Prince Rupert, Icy Strait Point). We discovered that we over packed (way too many clothes and cold weather boots which were never worn). Our trip lasted 17 days flying from Cincinnati to Denver (one night), Denver to Seattle (2 nights in Seattle), NCL Jewel 10-night Alaskan cruise, 1 night in Vancouver, AMTRAK train ride from Vancouver to Seattle on the Cascades Train in business class (very nice), 2 night AMTRAK train ride on the Empire Builder from Seattle to Chicago, one night in Chicago, and flight from Chicago O'Hare to Cincinnati Airport. The two-night train ride on AMTRAK was not very restful, with us waking each time the train hot a bump, rocked or rolled. We slept for 13 hours straight in Chicago on a luxurious bed with a great view of the city at Magnificent Mile location. Flight from Chicago to Cincinnati on United was very relaxing. Made it home Saturday night by 9pm and slept for another 13 hours. Good thing my husband and I are retired (we are both in our young 60s), but we definitely needed a rest from our 17 day journey (trip of a lifetime and now marked off our bucket list). A word to the wise for advice on packing: We only needed clothes really for seven days as most outfits could be interchanged and worn again. We did not need heavy winter coats. We did not need cold weather boots. We could have taken three medium sized suitcases and two personal carry on bags and have been just fine. The more suitcases you have, the more difficult to navigate without assistance and additional expenses. There is plenty of room under the bed to store the suitcases. NCL Jewel freestyle cruising fit our needs where we could dine when we wanted to within restaurant hours. The perks associated with our cruise included the ultimate beverage package, $100 onboard credit and $50 per cabin deduction for port excursion. Drinks being served while still in Washington area while free under our package still incurred state tax which quickly eroded the onboard credit. Drinks could be pretty potent, so advise being aware and conscious of number of drinks consumed. They hit you hard when you get up and start moving around a rocking ship. Too easy to stumble from the rocking and fall and get hurt before ever starting the vacation. Also Medicare insured folks should be aware that Medicare does not pay outside the USA. One of our friends had to visit the ships doctor for a bad cold that turned for the worse and had to get a prescription for medicine (antibiotics, etc). His bill was $500. I have since discovered that Medicare insured folks can purchase additional supplemental or gap insurance that does cover outside the USA. We immensely enjoyed the WhitePass and Youkon Route train ride in Skagway and the Otter Express excursion in Sitka. We saw over 50 humpback whales, sea otters and seals and bald eagles in Sitka. Overall: This was a great experience. My husband and I had never been to Alaska and we loved the parts we saw. Luscious pine tree forests, beautiful pristine waters, and Oh My Goodness: The glaciers were magnificent! We witnessed and heard the loud cracking noise of calvings before they occurred. The staff on the NCL Jewel were extremely professional, courteous and helpful and actually looked and acted they were glad to be there serving the NCL Jewel and its customers. We loved it. We highly recommend taking this cruise. Read Less

My wife booked this cruise so we could travel the Hawaiian islands with my mother. Mom had a cabin on the 4th deck on the inside. We had an "upgrade" to a room on the 7th deck with a view of a tender boat. At least we had some natural light. We boarded the ship without a problem and found our cabin. We went up for a drink while waiting for the luggage to arrive. We checked for the luggage around 6:30 PM and found my wife's bag by the door. No sign of my bag. So, we went up for another drink and decided to return to the room after about an hour. We came down the other end of the hallway and saw a single bag about 10 doors down from ours. As we got closer, we saw that it was indeed my bag. I hauled it into the room, thankful that it wasn't lost. It had the cabin number on the bag. At least they got it close to our room, so someone must have read the tag. Later, we asked guest services why the bag wasn't delivered to the room. They said that sometimes things like that happen. OK. Later on the first night, we decided to get a night cap at the Waikiki Bar on the 13th deck. My wife ordered a chardonnay and the bartender said that they didn't have any. The only white wine they had was a white zinfandel. I said, "Really? You're out of chardonnay on the first day of the cruise?" The bartender had some story about the hurricanes causing a shipping issue. I reminded her that much of the chardonnay comes from California. She insisted that she would rather not be having this conversation, and never offered any suggestions. So, we went to another bar and got a chardonnay. Back to guest services where we explained what had happened. The attendant apologized and that appeared to be it, until an officer overheard our story. She produced a voucher for a free bottle of wine, which we gladly accepted. The following day, a bottle of wine appeared in our room, along with a letter from the beverage officer giving her apologies. So this worked out alright for us. I was taken aback by the markup they have on drinks. A 16 oz. Budweiser was $7, plus the 18% "tip" that's added to everything. So even if you get a lousy drink or bad service, they get an exceptional tip. The employees love it since they get a decent wage from the price gouging. I'm sure NCL gets a cut of the "tip." It made me clearly see that NCL is a business first, leaving the customer second. If your wallet is infinitely fat, the ripoff prices won't bother you. Evidence of greed is the giant photo viewing area and a massive jewelry store. Both are likely big profit centers or they wouldn't devote some much deck space to them. Oh yeah, an 8x10" photo costs a cool $25. And cabin cleaning is a cool $15/day/person. Boy! That would really add up across multiple cabins. Lastly, I think the ship is simply too big for some of those ports. It should be about half the size (and the cost). I believe NCL has an "arrangement" with the Hawaiian government since they are the only cruise line available in Hawaii. If we had a choice, we likely would have chosen something other than NCL.

I thought the cruise was almost perfect. Was disappointed that the Good Feet arch supports were not actually discounted $100. Checked on-line and the price was the same after the "discount". Attended 2 art auctions. Bid on an item and thought it was reserved until I paid for it. 2nd auction, I requested prices on 2 items and an appointment was made later that day and I was under the impression that the meeting was to discuss the price. 20 minutes late, I was informed that there was no longer the auction price but full. Really. I did not even get the initial item I bid on. Never been to an art auction before and these problems were unexpected. Extremely disappointed. First cruise I have ever been on that a fee is charged for the steam room. Another disappointment. Ate dinner in the buffet once and was the last time. Good variety but very bland. Room steward was great! Did truly enjoy every port!!!!!!!!!!! Read Less

Choose this cruise to return to Hawaii after 33 years. We are from the east coast, so we thought it would be a good way to get accustomed to the time change to Hawaii (it was). With five plus sea days to start out, it was relaxing, but everyone was getting a bit stir crazy. Since it was late in the season for Vancouver, the first few days were cloudy and cool. The remaining sea days were sunny and progressively warmer. With so many sea days up front, one had to rely on Celebrity to keep you entertained. The speakers talking about Hawaii were very good. On Board sporting events (one/two per day) were very spotty and very poor (there was not one ping pong tournament which is a first in any of our cruises!). Other entertainment were typical cruise activities, Evening entertainment was normally very good with several acts from Vegas. The Celebrity singers and dancers were average at best. This is the first cruise that we used anytime dining. Our last few cruises at the late seating for dinner were frustrating as we typically dined by ourselves. This cruise, we ate with different people every night and met several other couples at different tables. We thought this was very enjoyable. As typical for Celebrity, the food was excellent and the specialty restaurants were very good as well (Murano twice and Tuscan). The shore excursions in Hawaii were expensive, but were very enjoyable (Snorkeling in Kona, lava flows in Hilo, and waterfall hike in Maui). None of that compared to seeing the lava flow hit the ocean at midnight as the ship passed within a half mile. Make sure you book the excursions you want before you board the ship or you may be on a waiting list. Read Less

I chose this ship because it was the only one that went around the islands from Honolulu. I have been on several different cruises and this was my worse experience ever. The employees walk around with frowns on their face and most are just starring out into space. There were dishes left on tables that workers just walked past, I had a difficult time getting my room made up. The food was average. I ate at the Aloha Cafe and the Cadillac diner. The food in the Aloha was cold which is why I ate at the Cadillac diner but their menu was limited and the service was slow. The waiter brought my food out shuffling her shoes she was so tired she couldn't even pick up her feet. We ate at the Key West Bar and the cook up there was this big guy that never smiles. He reminded me of Lurch on the Adams family and definitely scared me. Never smiles. They had an end of cruise tour that said if your flight leaves after 4 on Saturday you can take it and I said mine left at 4:35 and they said don't take it then cause they could not guarantee I would get back to the airport by 4. I asked why it was advertised like that they said they didn't know. It was very poor, no organization at all. Read Less

This was our 2nd NCL cruise (jewel), and 6th overall (other 4 RCL). We had balcony stateroom 11044. If I had to do it again, I would have gotten 11036 or 11034. Great location on the starboard side near pool and elevators. However, with music at the pool most afternoons and a restaurant above, a little more forward would have been perfect. Same deck as Aloha cafe as well. I was expecting a less than friendly staff based on previous reviews here, but that was not the case. Other than one maître d' at Cagney's, every person was extremely friendly, and caring, and engaging. As soon as we got on deck 11, looking for the Aloha cafe, a bartender came out and approached us, asking what she could help us find. This became the norm for the whole staff, the entire week. (except for our stateroom attendant, see below) While our stateroom was as expected, our stateroom attendant was MIA. We never saw him/her the entire week. Not kidding. Never met him/her, saw him/her, nothing. We are used to having our cabin made up between breakfast and lunch and turned down in the evening, normally while out to dinner or show. 6/7 days our attendant visited our room just once. The other day, no visit. There was a great stateroom attendant, Lucia, down the hall that was very sweet and apologized all week, exchanged towels, etc. On day 5, we made a complaint, got towels from Lucia, nothing changed. However, we still had a great time. We arrived on Friday, took a $35 or so (one way for 2) shuttle from airport to hotel and stayed at the Marriott Waikiki, via one free pre-cruise night deal. Baggage took about 45 mins to arrive on the carousel. Shuttle doesn't need to be prearranged, they are against the wall in a booth and you can set it up then. Less than expected for a Marriott, but it appeared all the hotels were old and outdated. We explored the beach and had dinner at one of the local restaurants. The next morning, there was a place to meet for transportation that is provided from Marriott to ship. This was nice as you left your bags in your room that morning, tagged with cabin number, and they were ready in cabin when you arrived. Hotel to ship was 15 mins or so. Check-in was a breeze, maybe 15 minutes including security, etc. We ate in Aloha and then headed to the pool deck as the cabins were to be ready between 2:30 and 3:30. Luckily we wore our swimsuits because it was hot and the rooms weren't ready until around 3:50. They said there were toilet issues. Luckily they were resolved and we had no issues all week. Set sail for Maui and we did the Molakai Crater and Turtle Snorkel. Highly recommend this excursion. Top 10 snorkel location in the world. It is run by a non-profit as well. We happened to see bottle nose dolphins on the way to snorkel and spinner dolphins on the way back, however they said this was rare to see in the area. Incredible visibility and great fish. The seas were to rough at the Turtle snorkel area so we stayed longer at the crater. Photo available for purchase $20 cash or card) The next morning, we got up at 1:30am to meet at the terminal to do Haleakala Sunrise and Bike Tour. This was done by Maui Downhill. There is a bit of wasted time at their shop getting fitted for gear and just sitting around. Then there is an hour and half drive up the volcano. If you've read reviews about this tour and you've heard to take warm clothes, do not discount this advice. However much clothes you think you need, double it. I had on 3 layers including long sleeve pullover and sweatshirt, sweatpants and two layer wind pants, and was still frozen. However, it was worth it. The sunrise was awesome. You then drive down from 9700 ft to around 6900ft and get on bikes and ride down. You cruise downhill between 15 and 30mph. Again, this was awesome. No pedaling, just steering and braking. The bikes weren't fancy, but they needn't be. Highly recommend this tour as well. Tipped the driver and the bike tour guide. The bike tour guide does recommend a tip of $20 per person, which seemed a little forward, but I get it. The next day was at Hilo. Here we did a zipline through paradise excursion. 8 double ziplines (meaning two lines) up to half a mile long. Very Very rough road leading from main road to zipline and back. Guides were extremely safe and knew what they were doing. Zip line over a couple of different waterfalls. It was pretty good. Not as exhilarating as I was hoping but the rest in our group seemed to love it. Pictures are made throughout the ziping and are available for purchase. $25 for one or $49 for all (12+). At Kona you tender in life boats. Its a short ride over to the pier. There is a small beach there where we hung out most the day. Its nothing fancy, but not bad. We rented an umbrella for $12. You could do 2 chairs and umbrella for $29. Water there was very cold as it is fed by a natural spring. Again we put on our snorkel masks (we bough full face snorkel gear from amazon for around $40 ea-highly highly recommend) and saw some incredible species. They also rented stand up paddle boards, kayaks, etc. In Kauai, we again went to the nearest beach and hung out. There are free shuttles from the ship to the shopping/beach area. There is a Marriott there as well, that sits on the beach. They have the world's largest Koi collection. Again here you could rent stand up paddle boards, surf boards, etc. Not much sea life that we saw in this area. Later that evening we did the Manor house toru and Luau. This is the most expensive Luau option. 600-800 guests from the ship will get off and go to the Luau. The Manor house tour gets you first bus there, first bus back (think about all of those people going through security). It also includes, a train ride around the property, prime front row seating and a separate dinner at the manor house while everyone else eats at the Luau buffet. However, this dinner was less than appetizing to many in our group. Its a set menu which our night included chicken wontons for appetizer, roasted fish on spring greens salad, pork and fish wrapped in thai leaves, rice, and cheesecake for dessert. I found the appetizer, the pork, and the cheesecake very good. Again, many from the ship in our group did not enjoy it at all. They then lead you to your table in the front row. I think you definitely could, at that time, go to the buffet and get dinner if you didn't enjoy the first dinner. The show was spectacular. You are then led out first back to the bus to get back to the ship. Highly recommend this tour. Day 2 at Kauai, we used as a rest day. You leave port around 1:30pm and tour around to see the Napali Coast. Incredible view of this side of hawaii. When back in honolulu, we used the terminal baggage storage ($5 per bag) and stored our bags until 4:45pm. You must pick up your bags by 5pm. once our bags were stored we got a free shuttle back to waikiki. The caveat was that you had to go through a 20 minute tour at the Maui Dive shop to see how their jewelry is created. Actually very interesting. These guys are located at the bag storage area. They do free shuttles throughout the afternoon at various pickup points. However, we just used them from terminal to their shop and then to the Ala Moana shopping center. From there we took public bus ($2.50 pp - google maps will tell you which bus/stops to use for your desired route) back to terminal at 445 and then a taxi from terminal to airport ($35). During the cruise we ate at Cagneys and Teppanyaki. Both were great meals. Entertainment was surprisingly good. Both the magician and the comedian (forgot both their names) were very good. There also was a quartet, Well Strung, that was top notch. It seems like maybe this ship has more rotating entertainment than most. I believe all 3 of those had just gotten on that week and weren't staying on very long. There was a vegas style show on Friday night (last night) that was a bit risque'. Looked like a lingerie show. Hope this helps someone as they plan their vacation. Read Less

The cruise was nice but I really expected more. It was a once in a life time experience so my expectations were really high. The cabin was good but was not clean... what a disappointment, seriously I had to clean the toilet before using, very unhappy. The cabin was as I expected otherwise, plenty of closet space for two, we had a balcony The ship was well maintained and the staff was very and helpful and friendly. Dining was wonderful especially the specialty dining, I would strongly recommend at least a 3 day package. Ports and Shore excursions were very good but very pricey all the tour guides were very informed and courteous. We really enjoyed the Deluxe Road to Hana and Gayle was Great. Activities on board were great and kept you busy if you had no desire to do excursions. There was one big disapointment and this was the music in the Mardi Gras Lounge. The music that the DJ played was primarily music from 2000"s, The majority of the passengers were age 50 and above so I expected to hear music from 70's and up. 90% of the music was from 2016-17. The same music was played every night from 10pm - close. I spoke with the Director of Entertainment and he advised me that he always looks at the age range of guess on Pride of America to decide the type of music and entertainment the guess would prefer, unfortunately he failed the week we sailed.

Having done a land tour of the Hawaiian Islands, this was a good opportunity to see the islands in a different view. We love the idea of only unpacking once and have done several cruises. The staff were excellent. The shore excursions although pricey were very good with local guides who know their islands. The food was plentiful and a good selection. Even though the ship was over capacity , there was lots of room and places to wander over the ship. The wi-fi was touch and go. The on board shows by the staff were very good if not a bit too loud for my ears. The idea of having a couple of days in each port meant you could relax and not worry about being back on board in a rush. The dining rooms were beautifully decorated with stars and stripes of the American flag and the buffet was a beach theme. Read Less

My husband and I are new to cruising on the open water (we have done the river cruise in Europe) and chose this Cruise as our introduction to cruising because it only travels around the islands and does not spend days at sea. This Cruise was everything it purported to be, with a very casual atmosphere, great daily entertainment, excellent operational systems and amazingly helpful staff. I read some of the critical reviews and can only say that these people obviously do not plan properly. Every specialty restaurant we tried was superb - the food was 5 star and the efficiency of the staff was top notch. Yes sometimes there were people waiting for tables, but this was mainly because they had large parties (5-6 or more) and hadn't booked. The specialty restaurants are limited in capacity and no one wants to rush you through your meal, so the best way to go about eating at one of these is to plan ahead and book, its easy, the facilities are on board and easily accessible. You can't expect to rock up to a restaurant of this type at home without a booking, so why would you expect it to be otherwise on board? There are so many eating options we could not fit all of them into our 7 nights, we did however try 7 different ones and rated all of them as excellent. The cruise for us (coming from Australia) was great value and the perfect introduction to cruising, the rules were flexible which made for a very relaxing atmosphere. We spent one night in Honolulu prior to the cruise and a further 2 nights there post cruise, the accommodation and extras in this package made the trip extremely enjoyable. As it was our 4th time in Honolulu, it was wonderful to experience the laid back feel of the other islands by taking this cruise - the contrasts with Honolulu are amazing. As well as enjoying the various island highlights, we feel very privileged to have witnessed lava flowing into the sea, and to have seen the beautiful Na Pali coastline's magnificent cliff sides, with nature providing the most amazingly brilliant Rainbow just to add to the experience. This was a wonderful trip for us and we would not hesitate to recommend it to all our friends. Read Less

It was only one available to see the different islands and had cruuised with many times before. Not up to previous experiences on NCL.Being a rewards customer does not really do anything other than maybe a discount at gift shop.Excursions were very informative with the drivers being all native Hawaiians,but were a bit on the rushed side due to limited time available at each port.Disembarkment and embarkment went rather smoothly considering number of passengers onboard. Kona was the only port which required a tender to bring ashore which was not the most convenient for easy on and off from the ship. Crew was very professional and entertaining for all ages. Food was about average compared to previous cruises with the exception of the Modesto restaurant, this was an exceptional experience that everyone should try and enjoy.Shore excursions at some ports were filled up quite early so you should try and make resercations as quiclky as possible in order to receive what you really want to do on shore. Ports were not easy to walk from ship to shops without some type of transportation invloved. Read Less
