Beautiful Hawaiian Islands by lisrospal

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We had a good time on this trip. However we paid for a balcony room that we were not able to use much due to work being done on the lifeboat hanging mechanisms. This was a disappointing experience, as well as not being able to go to Pearl Harbor or Maui. Otherwise we had a positive experience with the ships staff. Most of the time the pool could not be used even on the day at sea when we were unable to go to Maui. The food and beverages were good.

Wonderful experience on Pride of America by jend830

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I had not been on Norweigan for about 17 years, as I've been mostly committed to Royal Caribbean. When I first saw the Pride of America I thought it looked a little run down, but once on the ship I found it to be beautiful, easy to navigate, very clean, and with a great staff. I will definitely go back to taking Norweigan cruises in the future. And you can't beat the itinerary. This is the only Hawaiian itinerary that visits all four major Hawaiian islands.

Hawaii Cruise by mdsettlemire

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Had a good time. Boat did roll more than expected. Food at sit down complimentary restaurants should have a baked fish ie. Cod or better every night.

If you like good late night entertainment, then hit the Piano Bar and listen to some great music with dancing. Also, I think they have one of the best bartenders there.

We tended to go to dinner early to get great tables by the windows.
