Boring cruise with bad food and everyone seasick

Review for Pride of America to Hawaii

This is our second cruise with NCL because the first one pre-pandemic was great. WOW were we in for a shock! The food was cold and tasteless. Some of the supposedly free specialty dining was closed the entire time. No reservations available for the ones that were open, even though we did it a month in advance of the cruise. There was only one sit down dining room that was open and only for dinner ...

I read the reviews about staffing and alcohol availability and we went on this cruise with the attitude we will see for myself. Afterall it was only 4 or 5 negative reviews total. My husband and I have cruised 8 times on a variety of cruise lines. I will tell you we left this cruise with a positive experience. Were they staffed in full? no; but Norwegian explained this with a letter. Did we ...

NCL has cornered the market as the only cruise line that can embark from Oahu and stop at the other Hawaiian Islands. My family and extended family recently cruised on the Pride of America in mid October 2022 and were very disappointed. The ship while clean was old and dated. This ship is extremely rocky. I have never been seasick on a cruise before, until this ship. It had very limited shopping ...

First , I should state that we were in a suite at the front of the ship so our experience should be seen in that a light . The ship had only 1400 px which I think is a limit number for Tahiti and since there are only 20 or so suites we had certain benefits in getting off for tenders when we wanted , special seating for shows and ability to book dinners perhaps easier . The ship is in great shape ...

Probably the best cruise I have ever taken.

I chose this cruise because of the itinerary. This was our cruise that we booked when our March of 2020 COVID cruise was cancelled. Since we were sailing less then ten days prior to them cancelling the cruise, we received a VERY good discount on any cruise we booked. Therefore, I went big and did my dream cruise. Remember for food and shows, every person may have a different opinion. ...

NCL never again

NCL has become a joke for a cruise line. 1. Free Drink Package - The pool bar is the only open on most days. The big sports bars was never opened and the back bar that holds 100+ people was open one afternoon. If the bar was opened it was 5 pm. And you could never ever get service. To the bar for 90% of our drinks yet a $3 service top charge was added. We prepaid tips SO NO NEED for NCL to ...

This was our first "post-COVID" cruise after several others being cancelled, so we were somewhat apprehensive how things would be onboard. For us, it was no problem, because what we like is being outside. So, we wore a mask anywhere inside on the ship outside of our stateroom, but being fully vaccinated and boosted, we did not while outside. We started cruising with Norwegian for the Freestyle ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Took this cruise to enjoy the sights of Alaska and travel to Hawaii, and it started good and rapidly went downhill on the Norwegian Spirit. Ship is old and smaller than others, therefore lacking in good activities and eating establishments. We purchased the Thermal Spa Package only to find, due to the age of the ship, not all of the amenities are present on this ship. Of those available the ...

We had always wanted to cruise Alaska and Hawaii and here was a cruise that did both.Prior to this cruise you had to prove that you had had a negative Covid-19 test no more than 3 days prior to sailing. Fortunately we did not have that hassle, unfortunately neither did anyone else, including the ship and it's crew. We did not realize it but the first bad sign came the first morning at breakfast. ...

The entertainment and staff were overall wonderful on board. We really enjoyed our Hawaiian cruise. When we got home to share our experiences with family and friends, unfortunately the first things that came to mind were the negative issues with Norwegian. Norwegian seemed to want to use every opportunity to get us to spend more than the initial $9000 we paid for our cruise to Hawaii. When we ...
