Pride of Aloha leaving? It shows....

We have sailed this same itinerary last January and in spite of the bad reputation at NCL America, were pleasantly surprised. I mentioned this to the Hotel manager on board and in a review I did after returning. This trip however indicates the general malaise that has befallen PoA staff, knowing the PoA's days are numbered. I think this cruise is selected for the itinerary with less emphasis on ...

I read the previous reviews of this ship before booking. Now that I have experienced it, I am happy to report that my experience was not bad. What I have to say will probably not influence many people, since the Pride of Aloha is being re-branded and moved to Asia. However, I want to give some positive feedback, since so much negative feedback has been voiced here. I have sailed on two ...

I (30+) traveled with my mother (60+) to Hawaii a few years ago and we only saw Oahu and decided to return in order to see more of the islands. We decided to cruise with the Pride of Aloha in March 08 which would also give us the opportunity to do some whale watching. We booked with our travel agent locally in New Zealand and it was a very quick and simple process. We have cruised twice with ...

We just got back from our 3/26/08 cruise on Pride of Aloha. I realize this ship doesn't have many days left, but I thought I would pass on some information on our trip that may prove beneficial to others. We started out on March 25th, by flying in from Dallas / Fort Worth Texas. We arrived in Honolulu without incident at 3:30pm (direct flight with American Airlines), although eight hours is a ...

This was our 12th cruise, our first (and last) on NCL. One fellow cruiser called it "the cruise from Hell". I wouldn't go that far, but the level of service was certainly not up to par. We stayed pre-cruise at the Marriott Waikiki, a very nice facility. Our travel agent had told us we could book shore excursions and dinner times at the NCL office at the hotel, but since we didn't book the cruise ...

The problem is, where do I start? Getting onto the cruise ship was quite smooth and pain-free. The agents made sure they processed your info and that you were on your way onto the ship fairly quickly. HOWEVER, while walking through the promenade to get to the ship, you will have a few people standing there ready to sell you stuff already. The most notable one was the Coca-Cola bottle. They want ...

I was expecting a small cabin but I was not expecting a cabin with the last traveler's garbage, three burned out light bulbs, damaged vanity, a bed that would not stay together, hair dryer that would not work, plug in that would not and oh yes a moldy shower curtain. So it was off to the basket ball / volley ball court / shuffle board to work off the displeasure. It would seem the sports equipment ...

My husband and I have been on 5 previous cruises so we do have something to compare this ship to. I have to admit that I did read the reports of other passengers who had been on this ship. Luckily I did not let them influence my experience. Our cabin steward introduced himself to us and I have to admit that he kept it clean and tidy everyday. We ate most of our breakfasts in the Crossing Dining ...

A group of 9 left the cool midwest for Hawaii. We had planned this trip for 11 months. We flew through Chicago, to Honolulu, arriving the day before. We stayed at the Ohana Melia and was impressed with the service and quality of the hotel. Saturday morning we took a tour of Pearl Harbor through Roberts Hawaii. We arranged our own transportation to/from the airport and the port. We arrived at the ...
