Disappointing

Review for a Hawaii Cruise on Pride of America

Cruise Along Nana
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Of all the many cruises we’ve enjoyed on ships large and small, this was by far the worst. Although the ship itself is elegant, good management was sorely lacking. We were told that the ship is always short-staffed because their people can (and do) leave without fulfilling their contracts. Well, I think incentives and bonuses might help. Keep your people happy so your customers will be treated ...

Disappointed, felt like camping NOT luxury

Review for a Hawaii Cruise on Pride of America

10+ Cruises • Age 40s

I'm an experienced cruiser who has cruised on small and large ships all over the world for the past 15 years. I chose this inter island cruise in Hawaii based on the location for my 40th birthday without the hassle "sea days" taking another cruise line across the Pacific Ocean from either California or Canada to visit Hawaii and all the islands. The perk of the ship is that is its very clean and ...

Never again!

Review for a Hawaii Cruise on Pride of America

Unhappy-cruiser70
2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

Where to begin. Cold and mediocre food on the buffet. Only about TWO total entertainment activities worth your time. Because of weather, 2 out of our 3 excursions were canceled and couldn't be rescheduled because they had no back up plan. Most of the staff was rude and treated us like an after thought and not like a guest at all. Guest services argued with us that we hadn't paid for a drink ...

Continually Disappointing and Poorly Managed

Review for a Hawaii Cruise on Pride of America

TN White Beard
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

Cruise Period Feb 3 - Feb 10, 2024 Embarked on Sat Afternoon Feb 3. At 5pm the Ship's Cruise Director (AKA A LO HA ANNE) announced the Ship would remain in Honolulu overnight because of a part needed for repair. In realty the seas were ugly with 15' - 20' seas. The decision to stay in port was correct. But, WHY hide behind the Maintenance excuse? Then decision was made to ...

Review for a Hawaii Cruise on Koningsdam

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

My wife and I try to take a “find the Sun” activity around February to get away from the Northwest Indiana winter. This year it was the 18 day Hawaii from San Diego back to San Diego. This was also our fourth HAL cruise in five months. With over 50 cruises under our collective belts, this one goes down toward the bottom of the list. HAL cannot be held accountable for the weather and I do not ...

Koningsdam 18-night Hawaiian Cruise

Review for a Hawaii Cruise on Koningsdam

ElEl
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We were in a mid-ship Neptune Suite across from the Neptune Lounge. We are both in our mid-to-late 70’s and are 4-star Mariners with Holland American. This was our 8th HAL cruise, all of which have been in Neptune Suites. We left San Diego on January 27, 2024 for an 18-day round-trip cruise to Hawaii. If this had been our very first cruise, I might have rated this a bit higher. But when ...

Wished It Was Better

Review for a Hawaii Cruise on Pride of America

Wish It Was Better
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We were very disappointed in serveral areas while on the ship. 1. The entertainment in the Hollywood theartre, with the exception of the magician and the Hawaiian opening, was not good. The comedian was very disappointing and vulgar. 2. The chairs in the Hollywood theatre were worn out and very uncomfortable. You slid off them as you were watching the performance. 3. Cost of ...

Floating hotel with bad food - don't plan on Kona!

Review for a Hawaii Cruise on Pride of America

tombaud
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

The nice thing about Pride is you see three islands - it is a floating hotel. The bad news is the food was terrible, the staff mediocre. We had some specialty dining in Cagneys and Moderno. Those were both good, but the food on the buffet was terrible. The night they had prime three of four in our party ordered it and not one person could eat it. I've had beef jerk more tender. ...

Not so great cruise

Review for a Hawaii Cruise on Pride of America

pachy26
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We have been on this very same cruise in the past. This time the food was awful, employees were mostly sullen, and often just plain rude. Food was always cold, either over or under cooked, and had very little taste. The buffet and Skyline restaurant food was a disaster. East meets west had great flavor, but was served cold and with an attitude. In the buffet dining area, it appeared to be the ...

Super cruise

Review for a Hawaii Cruise on Koningsdam

Kerinann
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

This was a fabulous cruise. The ship was clean, comfortable and most importantly the food was outstanding! The staff were all helpful and friendly and no matter how stressed they were happy ( and sometimes singing)! It was about 5 days out and 5 days back strictly at sea. We found it relaxing but not seeing land or another ship that entire time could be somewhat daunting. The life boats were state ...
