NCL's ship and crew should try to be as beautiful as the Hawaiian islands it visits. The Pride of Aloha is a training ship and it shows. The American crew is not attentive to passengers while some crew members make it clear that they do not want to be bothered by their answers to questions. The ship itself has an odor problem in the aft section - going to the main restaurant the odor was obvious as soon as you stepped off of the elevator. Oh, yes, the food was mediocore at best, including the specialty restaurants. The ship ran out of certain foods, and even though we were in port, the food was not replenished. The only good thing about the cruise was the beautiful islands we visited.

The Road to Hana and the seven sacred pools is a beautiful sight.

Cruising the Na Pali coast was beautiful. It's hard to put into words the untouched beauty of this area. It's well worth the cruise. The only luau offered on our trip was here - and it was very good - food was very good also.

By any other name, this is an NCL private island. Have a nice bar-b-que - there's nothing else on the island.
