Pride of America Cruise Review by Chi-family

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2017
  • Destination: Hawaii
  • Cabin Type: Family Balcony

We did a lot of research prior to our trip. We traveled with our family, total of 7 people. 5 adults and 2 children. I will continue this review and add pictures over the next couple of days. Overall, we had a great experience and would highly recommend the Pride Of America to anyone wanting to visit Hawaii. This is the perfect way to visit the islands of Hawaii. The ship was very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food, which continually gets a bad reputation, was good. We ate one night in the Aloha Cafe and was disgusted by the food, but we ate the rest of our meals at the Skyline. Skyline was a great alternative to the chaotic buffet. We booked all of our excursions with private tours (not with NCL). I hope to add reviews in the future. Some of our excursions were: the Fairwinds, Ricky's Tours, Kauai backcountry adventures and Chief's luau.

Cabin Review

Family Balcony
Cabin B2 9694

This cabins are smaller then a typical cruise ship. We knew this coming into the cabin. My first reaction, was OH NO this is small. How are we going to fit 4 people in this room. But with some thoughtful arranging of luggage and pulling down the bed in the ceiling. we made it work.

We rented a car thru Dollar and drove around Maui. We had several people who get motion sick so we decided not to drive the Road to Hana. We spent our day leisurely driving. We visited the Ali'i Kula Lavender Farm and the Maui Wine winery. We ended our day eating a late lunch at a fish market.

http://www.rickystourshawaii.com We found Ricky's Tours via Cruise Critic. This was a great experience. Thanks fellow cruiser's for the recommendation. Ricky provided us a fun and full day of sight seeing. (update later)

Woah this was such an amazing experience. We spent the day on the Fairwinds.


This helicopter ride is amazing. A must do!


We loved our day at the Kauai Backcountrying Adventure center. They are the only place on Kauai that offers tubing.
