Enjoyed it but could be better
Pride of Aloha Cruise Review to Hawaii

Review SummaryWe wanted a vacation together one last time before our oldest son moved out. We had been on a cruise before and thought this would be a great way to be together without the problems of travel between different hotels etc.
We enjoyed the cruise but overall, liked Royal Caribean better because their staff was more attentive (motivated by tips). Loved the entertainment. My main objection was the security search you are subjected to every time you return to the boat. If all the boats do this, we won't be back anytime soon. Also, the docking location in Maui puts you quite a way from most of the activities and sights.
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
We didn't have a cabin steward (or if we did, we didn't know who they were). This was in contrast to the Royal Caribeen stewards who were always there. The staff was very helpfull and courteous.
Pros: The food was good
Cons: The security was a pain
