We basically did not enjoy being on Norwegian Cruise lines Pride of Aloha. For those looking to sail in the lap of luxury look elsewhere. The best way I can sum up the experience is to call it a "ghetto" boat.

Pros: The ports were beautiful which made up for the ghetto boat.

Cons: The whole experience on the boat was horrible.

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Freestyle basically means, get ready to wait an hour to eat and then when you get to your table plan on being there minimum 2.5 hours. Short staffed. Oh yeah, if you want the lobster, $20 extra.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Nawiliwili, Kauai
Will definately be back here again. The people and friendly and the whole island is laid back. My idea of a relaxing place free of the "tourist" feeling.
Kahului, Maui

Don't Miss: luau
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii

Don't Miss: catamaran snorkel
Hilo, Hawaii

Don't Miss: lava tubes
Honolulu, Oahu

Don't Miss: Pearl Harbor, Punch Bowl, USS Missouri
