Pride of America Cruise Review by Cookie136

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2019
  • Destination: Hawaii
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

We saw a few bad reviews about not being able to get in to restaurants etc. But if you book a reservation either before you sail or soon after boarding, it is smooth sailing. The crew couldn't have been nicer to us, all the way from the Captain to the room steward Shelton. We had a hiccup on the trip (fire suppression system flooded our room). But they put us up in another room for the afternoon while they replaced the carpet and more than compensated us for our troubles (which were so minor in comparison). The ship is showing a few signs of age but none more than what we witness on other cruise ships we have been on. My only reservation is the same issue we have noticed on other cruises - people reserving chairs near the pool that they don't use for hours. If there was a policy, and enforced, that any items left unattended for more than 1 hour would be removed it would be appreciated

About the same size as other balcony rooms we have been on. Very clean and in good shape

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


The 2:45AM wake up was rough but the sunrise was spectacular. If you do this, Dress Warm!

Kona (Kailua Bay)

Saw a few sunken ships but not that many interesting fish

Helicopter Tour

1 hour in a helicopter and we saw all the beauty the island has to offer. Pilot was very informative and photos came out awesome
