a very pleasant surprise!

Sail Date: April 01, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Balcony

After reading the other reviews, we had average expectations for this cruise. We have cruised over 15 times on this and other...better...cruise lines. My husband and I and our teenage kids were equally impressed! From beginning to end, our trip was top-notch....read on for specifics!

Pros: crowd management! you would never guess there were 2000 passengers.

Cons: staterooms were noisy....not well sound-insulated

Recommends Pride of Aloha (RETIRED)? Yes!

Hilo, Hawaii
seeing live flowing lava was GREAT!! there were a few injuries however; it is a difficult hike over uneven lava rocks. And you must stay up to see the ship pass the volcano at night...it was awesome.
Don't Miss: lava viewing hike!!
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
we went snorkeling on the zodiac raft...fun but cold if you are from a warm climate like we are. bring wetsuits if you have them.
Don't Miss: undersea world is amazing.
Nawiliwili, Kauai
beautiful.....we did the bus ride the first day which was our longest day, 2nd day we did 4x4 hike which was really a 4 wheel drive van, not an "off road" experience but was still a nice nature walk.

Kahului, Maui
Hakeakela crater, Maui Ocean center & Io valley in 2 days....the crater is huge and we had a rare clear day so we could see it all. It is a lovely island, but the crater was somewhat anticlimactic after the lava. Go to the ocean center if you can't snorkel or dive...it is better to get into the water.
