Room Type: Balcony

We recently sailed on the Pride of Aloha the 11 days Hawaiian and Kiribati cruise. Before our cruise a lot of people told us how bad this ship is.
Let us tell you this was not in our situation the cruise was GREAT.
This is NCL freestyle cruising you can have dinner the time you want to have and we had great service nice food and very nice and friendly staff on board.
The cruise went to Maui, Hawaii (kona and hilo) and Kauai
and to Fanning island Kiribati.
We have cruised many time on different ships and cruise lines to many places in the world.
The Hawaiian island are really beautiful, but Kauai is the best what a marvelous island
We made two tours the Wimea canyon, Wailua river and Fern grotto tour very nice and you should do this tour
The second tour we did was Hollywood in Hawaii & Falls
this was a great tour and I would advise this to every one Kauai is famous for all the movies made there you will see in your tour bus the movie and second later the real place the movie is made,
The Pride of Aloha altough no casino is a nice ship. we had a cabin with balcony very nice but airco was very cold (tip bring tape and paper and close half the airco ), The Palace restaurant ( waiting time to be seated around 5min ) was very nice the staff was very pleasant and food very good.We are from Amsterdam in the Netherlands and really like that the staff is mixed half american and half asian very good.
NCL is for the price you pay a good cruise line to cruise to Hawaiian island

Pros: the islands we visit

Cons: no self laundry on the ship
