7 Night Hawaii (Honolulu Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 21, 2007
Ship: Pride of Aloha
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 9 years ago
THE VESSEL IT SELF WAS VERY NICE. THE CREW ITSELF WAS QUITE INEXPERIENCED FOR A CRUISE OF THIS TYPE. MOST PEOPLE HAVE TO SAVE FOR A WHILE FOR A TRIP LIKE THIS. THIS HAPPENED ATO BE MY 20TH ANNIVERSARY AND I ENJOYED BEING OFF THE SHIP MUCH MORE THEN BEING ON IT. I HAVE BEEN ON THE MAJESTY AND CROWN, ALTHOUGH THEY WERE OLDER THE SERVICE AND FOOD WERE BETTER.

YOU HAD TO ASK AT LEAST 2 TO THREE TIMES IF YOU NEEDED SOMETHING BEFORE YOU ACTUALLY GOT IT.

Entertainment

THE COMEDIANS WERE GREAT. ESPECIALLY CHRIS ALPINE.

Service and Staff

VERY FEW OF THE CREW WERE FRIENDLY, WHEN YOU ASKED FOR SOMETHING IT SEEMED AS IF YOU BOTHERED THEM.

WE BOOKED THE WAILUA RIVER AND FERN GROTTO TOUR UNFORTUNATELY THE FERN GROTTO IS UNDER REPAIR SO WE WENT TO PARADISE GARDENS, WHICH WAS VERY PRETTY.
Don't Miss: SHOP FOR YOUR SOUVENIERS AT WALMART THE HAVE THE SAME FOR MUCH LESS.

CAPTAIN ZODIAK'S RAFT AND SNORKEL WAS GREAT. WE SAT IN THE MIDDLE OF A HUGE POD OF PILOT WHALES.
Don't Miss: THE CAPTAIN ZODIAK EXCURSION IS A DEFINITE.

WANT A SIGHT TO BEHOLD GO TO THE HALEAKALA CRATER. WE ALSO RENTED A CAR ONE DAY AND DROVE ALL OVER THE ISLAND AND SAW BEAUTIFUL MOUNTAINS AND CLIFFS AND THE OCEAN DOWN BELOW.
Don't Miss: DON'T MISS THE HALEAKALA CRATER

Pros: THE CAPTAIN ZODIAK EXCURSIONS

Cons: IT SEEMED AS IF ALL THE CREW WE CAME IN CONTACT WITH WAS NEW TO THE SHIP.THE FOOD WAS NOT AS GOOD AS OTHER NCL SHIPS EITHER. NO MORE CHOCOLATE NIGHT EITHER.

Recommends Pride of Aloha? No.
