  3. Pride of America
First cruise, so nothing to compare with. Overall very good. The buffet was crowded, the food was better in the sit-down menu restaurants. Enjoyed the added comp packages. Check in and check out was smooth and organized. Traveled with a mobility scooter so had an ADA cabin but the door was very heavy and it DID NOT have auto open/close...help was needed to hold the door. In addition, the elevators were very narrow and the scooter needed to go down the middle. Also the room button panel was behind so help was needed to select a deck number. The deck aisles did have auto open/close buttons. The balcony on the port side had excellent views. The actual cruising was done at night so no scenery was missed. Island excursions were limited due to using the scooter but the excursion on Kauai was handicap accessible and worthwhile. The bus driver handled the scooter easily. Not recommended to travel solo if handicapped. Enjoyed all four islands even though three were from the ship. Last time in Hawaii was over fifty years ago with the military. The entire crew was pleasant and helpful. No complaints.
