September 2015 - Pride of America to Hawaii
We went on the Pride of America cruise of the Hawaiian Islands in September. We had a great time. The buy-up restaurants were 'pricey' but worth the investment. Food was great. We didn't love the buffet, and avoided it at all cost. The crew was relatively friendly and helpful. The entertainment was better than any other cruises we have been on -- really great magician, singers, etc. Loved that the ship stayed overnight at the ports to allow you to spend a whole lot of time on the island. Really loved that they ship went around to the other side of Kawaii to give us a great view of the cliffs. The excursions, while very costly, were top-notch. Recommend that if you take the Kayak and hike tour on Kauai, that you do it the first day you arrive there so you can clean up your stuff and have it dry before packing. It is very muddy. Would recommend this cruise to anyone -- Hawaii was absolutely beautiful.
