POA - We had a great time

Sail Date: October 2011
Destination: Hawaii
Embarkation: Honolulu
My husband and I went on Pride of America to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. We had a great time and found the ship to be very clean and the crew very friendly. We had a guaranteed room and didn't find out until we boarded that we had an Oceanview Stateroom, we had only booked an Inside Stateroom as we didn't think we would be spending much time in the Stateroom anyway. We were on the lowest deck with staterooms, deck 4 or as we affectionally called it 'steerage', I think we watched Titanic once too many times. Our room steward's name was Christina and she was always very friendly towards us whenever she saw us. Our room size was more than adequate with plenty of room for luggage etc. The bathroom was a tad small but again adequate for our needs.

We didn't eat at any of the 'cover charge' restaurants but found the food everywhere we ate very good. The Aloha Cafe did get very crowded especially at breakfast time but we always found a seat. They had a large More selection of food and we were always very full when we were finished!! My husband particularly enjoyed the Cadillac Diner and we made frequent visits for Chocolate Brownies.( I made a rule that we could have it but we would need to do a lap of the ship after eating it). We also ate at the Liberty Restaurant and the Skyline Restaurant where the food was also good.

Disembarkation/embarkation at each Island was very smooth and trouble free, catching the Tender at Kona was faultless and lines were not huge.

We didn't attend much of the on-board entertainment, we did the first night Pub Crawl which was lots of fun and watched the Comedian one night as well (didn't like him much), we were mostly too tired after busy days and went to bed early. We immensely enjoyed all of our shore excursions and can highly recommend Atlantis Submarine and Lahaina on your own, Circle of Fire Helicopter tour and Heaven and Earth Quest. All in all we found the Pride of America to be a beautiful ship with friendly/organised crew and we can't wait to sail on her again someday. Less
