June 2015 - 7 Night Hawaii (Honolulu Roundtrip) Cruise on Pride of America
No competition leads to poor service
You would think that this was the inauguration cruise. No one seemed to know what to do. Crew members were always willing to tell you who to ask a question to but no one initially knew any answers. Excursions were so unorganized, I would not recommend using the cruise line. Use local tours and book online, you will save money and get better service. Example: AdventureinHawaii.com No other cruise ship goes to all the islands, so you are stuck with NCL. Food was great, our room was clean and good size our room steward Faziel Ruhman was the best. I have been on over 11 cruises (including panama canal) and this was by far the worst for customer service. Other cruisers agreed that is was comical. Crew was not happy (and they are 75% American workers). Not smiling just "doing there job".It was a poor expression of working Americans."Oh What a Night" was a great tribute to Jersey Boys but the other shows are not the caliber of other Cruise Lines. I guess I could say that the crew lacked the enthusiasm and spunk that other cruise lines have. But than again, you have no other choices, and the tourists will always come to Hawaii.
