We chose the Pride of America because of the destination and not the ship. For all practical purposes, it's the only game in town and a relative value if you wish to see several locations in 7 days. Nothing about this ship would compel us ... Read more

Went on this same cruise, same ship, several years ago... Boarding okay, yet had to wait about 6 hours after previous passengers departed for cabin to be ready. Cabin ok - with exception that they have stinkin' bunks above. Great for ... Read more

To be fair this was my first cruise so I cannot compare it to others. The excursions all felt too expensive or too limiting so we planned our own days and events. We booked one excursion through the ship and it went well. If money is ... Read more

Price of America is a great way to visit all the islands, esp for the on shore excursions like the volcano craters and snorkeling. Our cruise director, Vincent, was amazing and kept the fun going. Food was great, lots of options. Only ... Read more

No lobster. No escargot. Expensive drinks (most cruises guilty of this, too, though). Oceanview stateroom with unused elevated bunk beds that are in the way even when folded up. The only specialty restaurant we went to was Cagneys. ... Read more

Our cruise included a hotel the night before departure. We spent the night at the Waikiki Marriott. What a beautiful place! Thanks, NCL. We traveled with our immediate family, 10 in total. The kids caught an Uber at the hotel and ... Read more

I am a big fan of cruising and went with my family for the 7/1/2017 cruise. We found a decent deal, seemed a bit cheaper perhaps because the cruise covered the 4th of July holiday. I am 31 and single people my age don't usually have an ... Read more

This was an awesome vacation. I wasn't sure how my husband and I were going to be able to see more than one or two islands. The Pride of America gave us the opportunity to see FOUR of them. It was the perfect way to get a taste of each ... Read more

For our first visit to the Hawaiian islands, we opted for a cruise so we could explore a little of each of the main islands. Our 7-Day Cruise about the NCL Pride of America began in Honolulu, Oahu. We came in the day prior to the ... Read more
