Disappointing

Review for Pride of America to Hawaii

I have been on this cruise in 2014 & 2017. Prior to the cruise I was happy to see they have an app but it was useless and any info was best retrieved using their website. This time was a huge disappointment overall. Restaurants and bars were opened with limited hours or closed early or not open at all. For breakfast and lunch there were not enough options other than the buffet. They didn’t ...

This was a family trip with our 25 year old son and his friend. We were interested in seeing the islands on this itinerary. Previous reviews about short staffing, restaurants and bars being closed, food lack-luster and unappealing are completely truthful. The bathroom is very small. Shower stall is very tiny even for a child. Hot water in shower was non-existent. Towels replenished, but ...

We are Latitudes Platinum members and this was the third time sailing Hawaii, the first being on the Norwegian Star in 2003. Post pandemic testing was expected and easy. The ship's lower guest count was great as there were no lines, no excessive wait times, no jockeying for elevator space, no problems or issues with embarkation and debarking. Unlike many other passengers we wanted a nice quiet ...

Only cruise available for the Hawaiian Islands at the time. Crew did not keep passengers informed of happenings onboard the ship. Cruise was very understaffed. Waiters in dining room was serving entrees, clearing tables, retrieving food from galley and pouring drinks. They couldn't keep up. Serving and wait staff did not appear to be well trained. At least half of the restaurants and bars were not ...

We chose this cruise because it was the only one that did a Hawaiian Islands cruise. First off, the Covid tests were a pain. Many hours trying to compile. only to find out they had testing at the dock for a price. Pros: * The ship was very clean * The food was good. * Staff treated use good. Cons: * Entertainment was not up to expectations. * Onboard activities were ...

We had planned this trip precovid. We're a family of 4 adults, flying from two different US cities to meet in Honolulu. Came in two days early, stayed at the Park Shore Waikiki, relatively reasonably priced ocean view balcony rooms, across the street from the beach and the Honolulu Zoo, at the less congested end of Waikiki by Diamond Head. On the day before departure we toured Pearl Harbor ...

My husband and I traveled with our 12 (almost 13) yo son to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Hawaii had been on our list for many years and this was a great way to sample the islands. We enjoy cruising, and have frequently cruised with Disney and Royal Caribbean. This was our first NCL cruise. First the good - Hawaii is absolutely amazing, and we loved seeing all of the islands. The ...

We just got back from our June 25th cruise and here are our observations. Hopefully, some of these tips will help some of you planning your cruises. We traveled with 2 adults and one teen. It was very strange when we arrived to check in that there was nobody there. You definitely could tell this cruise was sailing with a low capacity. Highlights were the hardworking staff and the lack of crowds. ...

I cruised NCL Pride of America in Hawaii from June 18-25, 2022 after spending five days on Oahu. After reading reviews about the cruise especially since it resumed in April 2022, I was prepared for the reduced number of dining options, reduced bar hours, reduced number of staff, etc. There was only about 40% passenger capacity which made the time we spent on the boat excellent and better than ...

Ok- I love Norwegian but this just isn’t their best. So far, we’ve made it to Maui. Which is a whole other post. First, COVID understaffing. I get it. NCL sent an email that they were understaffed and two restaurants were not going to be open. Fine. But NCL should have said that many of the bars would not be open and the pool restaurant as well. NCL should have at least offered a discount ...
