Pride of America Cruise Review by Littleredky
- Sail Date: September 2017
- Destination: Hawaii
- Cabin Type: Aft-Facing Large Balcony
Booked all our excursions thru NCL before we left. Traveled with another couple so we printed out the details on the excursions in each port and discusses and decided which we wanted to do. Our favorite was the Deluxe Road to Hana, was a 9 passenger van so it was personal, was expensive but would recommend and do it again. It was a 7 plus hours tour.
Wonderful driver stopped as offen as he could for pictures.
Pearl Harbor isn't to be missed, makes you proud to be an American.
This is our 5th cruise and was a little disappointed overall. Food and service was OK but not exceptional. Most of the food in the "free" venues was warm, never had anything really hot. Everyone in our party commented on this. Specially restaurants were good and service was very good. Didn't like the fact that there wasn't a beverage package, heard others commenting on this at the bars and around the pool deck.
Overall we had a good time and glad we went this way but wouldn't do it again.

Only negative was at night they clean the deck of the bar above us and all the dirt and debris washes down on our deck. It would be wet and dirty in the mornings.? Was never sweep or cleaned in the week we were there. Furniture needs to be washed/wiped down each day. Noise wasn't a problem if fact a couple of late afternoons they had live music so we sat on our balcony and listened.
