If you want to experience the most visited tourist Islands, Pride of America is the way to go. The ship is one of the oldest in the NCF fleet but it was refurbished in 2016. The rooms are small even the 2 bedroom I had booked. Suite 9198 - located on the starboard aft side of the ship. The balcony is extremely spacious but the cabin is a bit tight for a suite. Their is only one bathroom. When you review your cabin on the NCF website the photo looks like their are two bedrooms with two windows but when you look at the drawing their is only one bedroom with a window. The master bedroom is very small with NO window. Very misleading on the original photo. Read entire member review >>
Room was small but very functional. There were nooks and crannies to put all of our stuff. It was myself, my husband, and our son. Our room was clean and Gade took very good care of us and our room while we were on board. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was big enough for the four adults with two adults sharing the master bedroom with the queen bed, one adult in the second bedroom (with pull out couch) and one adult in the main room (with pull out couch). Housekeeping made up all rooms each night and returned the cabin to its daytime mode each morning. The cabin itself is located underneath the bar on Deck 11, so there is some noise in the early hours due to crew members cleaning the deck. The single bathroom is also tight for four adults, but I booked the Thermal Suite for the week, so was able to enjoy my showers in the spa on Deck 12. Well worth the price.

A multi-room suite on the port, aft corner of the ship. Quiet location at end of hallway. A private bedroom with queen sized bed on the right as your enter. No natural light in this room but plenty of soft as well as brighter light fixture options. Space is compact as in can't fully open closet doors due to bed but you can still fully access the space within. Bathroom is opposite queen bedroom. Just past the bath is a 3 foot "hall" connecting to the adjoining cabin. Here is a floor to celing storage unit with safe, shelves, floor space, and lifevests above. Straight on is a sitting area with a couch that converts to a full bed at night. Two store areas, TV, coffee machine (that we asked to have removed) and minibar. Across from it and sharing a common wall with the queen bedroom is a den with sliding door. Within is a loveseat that converts to a oversize twin, closet, TV, storage, and floor to ceiling window overlooking the wrap around portion of the deck. Ah, the deck; nearly as big again as the cabin. It had 2 chaise lounges, a table and 4 chairs. The sun limited our usage on occassion but this was a perfect place to spread out and enjoy the view. Caught many sunrises and sunsets as well as people watching in port and of course, the Na Pali coast sail by. We had the volume all the way up on the TV but the door kept slamming shut in the swells that afternoon so we couldn't really hear the Hawaiian Ambassadors talk but no biggie. Hang loose.

Terrific cabin for anyone traveling with a third/fourth guest. I would limit it to 3 as the bathroom is miniscule and hopefully the person in the small bedroom is short. Our son is 6'1 and his feet were hanging off the bed. He moved the ottoman to the end of the bed so he could extend his legs. He loved having his own space though. The balcony is massive and BEAUTIFUL. It is perfect for sailing by the Na'Pali Coastline. Excellent Nepresso coffee maker (we asked and received extra creamers each day and extra coffee pods that were replenished frequently). We would definitely book this cabin again.

We fit 5 people (3 adults and 2 teenagers) into suite 8202, which had two separate bedrooms and a pull-out sofa. Only the king bed in the master bedroom was comfortable. The other two pull-out beds were very hard. The room wasn't very clean, and the bathroom was incredibly tiny. At least the two bedrooms had mirrors, counters, and hair dryers so you can get ready outside of the bathroom. The best part of the suite was definitely the balcony deck, which wrapped around the corner of the ship and provided fantastic views. It was nice to get the additional amenities for booking a suite, including access to Cagney's restaurant for breakfast and lunch, free movies in the room, a Nespresso machine in the room, a concierge, and additional perks that were included in the package we purchased (Ultimate Dining Plan, gratuities covered for two people, excrursion credit, and onboard credit).

We had a 2 bedroom family suite with a large balcony room (8702). When they say large balcony they are not kidding! Situated aft the balcony curves around and has about six chairs on it with several little side tables. The room has a regular bedroom with a queen bed, a sitting room with a huge floor to ceiling window. The sofa converts into a double bed and it has a pocket door. The living room was spacious and we had our own espresso machine!! Now that was a bonus. There was a ton of storage and shelving, 2 closets and flat screen TV's in every room. Our butler was on the ball and was right there whenever we needed anything. This was the perfect room for us and the price was really well worth it. We feel we got a fabulous deal!! The bathroom was a little small for the room but it worked and there was storage and the shelves in the shower were perfect. Gotta say the towels were great - big and fluffy! Strangely I have to say we only had one small trash can in our room. Loved the little tucked in area with shelving and the safe. The sofa in the living room converted into a queen bed so you could potentially have 6 people in that room. There was just the 2 of us and the room was spacious and well laid out. The room was in a great location we had no problem with noise and we had great views of Kilauea at night, the Napoli Coast was amazing and our balcony gave us just incredible views of everything from sunrises to sunsets.

Great room at the back of the boat. Three separate rooms, two bedrooms and one living space. Storage room available due to the alcove by the connecting stateroom door. Did not have a lot of drawers in the cabinets but did have shelves, also had two closets with lot of hangers. Bathroom small, but doable. Balcony is HUGE! Great for viewing lava and Na Pali coast.
