"NCL is not the way to cruise"

Sail Date: July 01, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Oceanview

NCL Pride of America is a fairly new ship (1-year old) and was the worst Service ever experienced on a Cruise Ship. I traveled with NCL 10-years ago on the Windward in the Caribbean and must say was a Great cruise experience. Pride of America severly under-staffed and the All-American crew left something to be desired due to tips paid in advance and no incentive to offer quality service. Hawaii is a great place to visit and would recommend traveling in the winter when there are other cruise options other than NCL like Royal Caribbean or Celebrity.

Pros: Hawaii

Cons: NCL Pride of America
