Second time cruiser...a few points after our Feb 15th 2020 adventure.

|

We did this cruise 6 years ago and really enjoyed the islands tour. Our favorite islands when all was said and done are Maui and Kauai. Ship is smaller and being American flagged means the crew gets decent pay ...

Very well done

We chose this cruise for the itinerary. "Pride" is the only cruise ship that stays in the Hawaiian Islands (no days at sea). We went 2 days early - to make sure luggage arrived before sailing, and to enjoy some ...

Better bathroom in my RV

Had a chance to go to Hawaii, and I always take advantage of those opportunities. This ship was part of a package, so I had no choice of cruise lines. This is an old ship, in need of an update. The cabin had a lot ...

Fantastic ship and itinerary

Embarcation: our booking said our check in time was 1200 but in actual fact, check-in was FROM 1200 so we wasted much of our day in Honolulu (having arrived the day before) and wished we had checked in by 5pm. ...

Great islands, poor ship

If you want to cruise several islands, NCL is you only choice. Our high expectations for the beauty of the islands was fully met, but the ship was quite disappointing. Most disturbing was frequent sewage odor in our ...

Despite rundown ship, subpar crew, and average food, good way to see Hawaii

The NCL Pride of America is the only American based ship that stops on four Hawaiian islands, without a stop out of the country, ie, a Polynesian Island. This means the ship has different "rules". There is no ...

Enjoyable cruise experience but a few glitches.

We chose this cruise because we were visiting Oahu anyway and wanted to see more of the islands. The Pride is the only one that tours the islands of Hawaii without a major ocean crossing. Our cabin was very ...

The right size ship, but lacks the WOW! it used to have

We arrived in Honolulu the evening before our cruise and had a hotel a short distance from the cruise port. From the time we check our bags with a porter, through security and check-in, we were on the ship in less ...

This was our first trip to Hawaii. We thought the cruise stopping at 4 Hawaiian islands would be a good way to get an initial taste for the islands. We opted for the three days in Honolulu prior to the start of ...

Our travel agent recommended it to us. My husband really doesn't like big ships and lots of people but his cruise did not feel over populated. Dining in the Skyline restaurant was excellent as opposed to La ...
