I chose this cruise because of the itinerary. We arrived a day early and stayed at the Ashton Waikiki . I booked the hotel through the cruise line and the hotel was in a good location but the hotel itself wasn't that nice. The ship was ... Read more

LOVED the freestyle version of cruising. So much less stressful! We spent a few days in Honolulu prior to embarkation, so we go to see Diamond Head, Pearl Harbor, lots of shopping, the Zoo, the Aquarium, and the beaches. That was a ... Read more

We had done this cruise with the family in January 2000. My youngest daughter was 5 years. She just graduated from college this year and we offered her a family vacation. She wished to do the Hawaiian Cruise once again. So, we took the ... Read more

This cruise was given to us as a gift! The ship was immaculate and the staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The port side balcony is a must especially if you cruise along the Napali coast; simply breathtaking. The ship's excursions ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary - not the ship or the cruise line. We had Room 10000 which was the front of the ship. Nice large room, and a balcony that spanned half the ship -- but one couldn't use most of it due to the ... Read more

This was my 1st cruise and I had severe reservations to the point I almost cancelled the trip, happily I didn't. My first surprise was the size of the cabin #4090. It was designed for wheelchair access and so was wider than all on Deck 4. ... Read more

Flying in from Sydney (Hawaiian Airlines very nice thank you) makes much more sense than cruising across half the Pacific first. Have cruised before on European rivers etc so this was our first "big boat" cruise. Can't say we ... Read more

We have been on several cruises always on the Princess line. We really enjoy cruises both for the different destination but also for the time on the ship. Unfortunately this time we were very disappointed. The destinations were great. ... Read more

Pride of America? Ha! No one was proud to be working on this ship and we certainly did not feel proud to be Americans after leaving. Our travel agent booked us our honeymoon to cruise around Hawaii on The Pride of America and I wish we had ... Read more

We were a pretty unusual demographic on this cruise-parents traveling with two "adult"(20 &23) children. The dominant demographic was by far was retired folks from 70-90 years of age (about 70%) from ALL over the world. Very ... Read more

I liked the idea of visiting four Hawaiian islands in seven days and cruising at night. Apparently Norwegian is the only cruise line that currently does this. Having a monopoly may help explain a lot. Firstly, I want to state that ... Read more

My husband and I had a bucket list wish to see Hawaii. We decided the best cruise would be the POA due to its itinerary of islands and the length of stay. Quite honestly we did not have high expectations about the ship based on many ... Read more

This was our 2nd week in Hawaii. We spent the 1st Week in Oahu at Marriott Ko'Olina, and wanted to see all the islands for our 2nd week. Best way to see them all, and not have to pack and unpack, take planes and such. The Pride of ... Read more

Despite all the negativity about this cruise, we decided to go with an open mind and found it to be exactly what we were looking for - a floating hotel with easy access to islands. First time in Hawaii, we didn't want to hustle with planes ... Read more

First of all, we have been on many cruises over the years all the way from large ocean going vessels to small river cruises. We were a little leery about taking this cruise based on prior reviews, but the itinerary was so good and unique ... Read more
