Cruise Experience In Hawaii 2007

Sail Date: May 01, 2007

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We cruised the Hawaiin Islands this spring in may 2007,a 7 days cruise starting in Honolulu.
the cabins were fine but the noise made us feel like we live in the boiler room, eventhough we asked for a check nothing was done.
The fre style cruising, which allows you to dine in any of the 10 restaurants is not productive, you need to make reservation way ahead but id you a re party of less than 5 you can not make reservation and you are at the mercy of the crowd, waiting time between 1-3 hours is comon or you can eat at the buffet upstairs, which is not what you paid so much for.
The cleaning of the cabins is also a problem, if not asking the maid to empty the trash from the bathroom, it would never be done and once you ask you get a cold shoulder for the rest of your trip.
The shore excursions were nice but way overpirced like the Volcano National park in cost with NCL $49.00 and with Robert Hawaii $29.00 or the Best of Maui with NCL $95.00 and with Robert hawaii $49.00, also the helicpter rides were half price on the islands vs. NCL prices.

Pros: The Islands we visited

Cons: The Free Style cruising and the noise in the cabin

Recommends Pride of America? No.

Food and Dining
Rduce the chill in the dining areas.
Save on laundry by providing little desert forks and spoon at the desert station rather than the need to get a full napkin with silverware set.
Ship Quality
Food quality was air and the choices limited. the service in any food facility was very slow.
all the rooms including the dining rooms were freezing although everyone complained about it.
Cabin / Stateroom
Reduce the noise in the room and fix the toilets noise as well.
Service and Staff
Except the dining area slow staff the rest were nice and professional.
Again if the temprature in the areas could be adjusted and more comfortable, not freezing, it would have been nicer.
