Pride of America Cruise Review by noodlehouser
- Sail Date: January 2013
- Destination: Hawaii
- Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Balcony
We LOVED the itinerary and would do it again in a heartbeat. Getting used to the American crew everywhere on the ship takes time (the bartenders spent a lot more time talking to them - they always had to wear their name tags) as did the speciality restaurant staff - but it is American Labor Laws. I am so disappointed that NCL chose to deal with this in this manner...and we know we aren't the only ones. It makes us worry about taking another NCL cruise....and you should worry too! We have booked our next one - on Celebrity. We love the NCL line overall for a moderate price but this was not okay. We did try to share our concerns with management - with no response (we are only the 2nd tier of preferred cruisers so we guess we don't count). Again we loved the time on each island (rent a car each time - you can really explore and not spend heaps). Use the speciality restaurants (the others are like mess halls). BUT NCL don't be so cheap!
