An Interesting Experience

Sail Date: January 21, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The ship itself was nice. The food service in the buffet area was a disaster only one serving area for the entire ship. Trying to find a sit inside the dinnering room was joke way to small and not enough tables availabe. They allow smoking in way to many places. The main room for entertaining was good and the two main shows were excellent but there were three nights without any main showroom entertain. There other room for entertain the Hawaii Room is way to small for the number of people trying to see. The dinner rooms are okay and the free style time set is good. But if you have cruise with other lines you will be very disappointed the service and food choices are not what you are use to (IE) Chile as a main menu choice.


Pros: Being able to travel to only the Hawaii Island was a big plus. The fact that Hawaii is part of USA we found the best way to see the Islands and not pay the big buck excursion fees was to rent a car. We had 6 people traveling together and after you split the cost it was a lot less than the cruise .

Cons: Service, food, lack of caring for customers and lack of organization

Recommends Pride of Aloha (RETIRED)? Yes!

Nawiliwili, Kauai
Kauai was very nice. We rented a car which was very easy to do. We did the Canyon which was a wonderful place to see and then drove to the Lighthouse and that was outstanding.
Kahului, Maui
Seeing the Banning Tree that is over an acre in size was neat. At first you do not thing it is all one tree but as you starting looking you see that it is only one hugh tree. The drive up to the Volcanoe was well worth the trip and no we did not do the sun rise trip. Seeing all the great beaches in the area and the various gardens. We rented a car again and we covered a lot more ground at a much lower price than the cruise prices. Overnight parking for the car was free and only 300 yards from the ship security gate that was very nice. The car rental places have pick up and deliver back at the docks.
