July 2016 - Pride of America to Hawaii
This was the first time my husband and I had been on a cruise, and was not looking forward to it. We went to celebrate my sister's birthday. After reading the reviews I was even more scared about how we were going to manage! Well, we had a sensational time and thoroughly enjoyed it. The dining was fantastic, the buffet OK, but the other complimentary restaurants were as good as the best restaurants in Melbourne, Australia (which is known in Australia for it's incredible dining) The staff were exemplary, always polite, helpful and engaging. Nothing was a bother. The only negatives were the prices of the alcohol, super high pricing. Our duty free alcohol was confiscated and we had to pick up at the end of the cruise. Also the cost of the tours was exceptionally high- we ended up using taxi's that greeted you when disembarking from the boat, sometimes at 50% cheaper or more. We found everything to be clean and comfortable. Although we found the 7 days long enough, we still really enjoyed the trip. It was a great way to see the other islands.
