7 Night Hawaii (Honolulu Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 11, 2007
Ship: Pride of America
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)

First impression was good, but no restaurant should have a cover charge to eat after paying your initial cost of the cruise. I think 4-5 of them did. The freestyle way of eating is really nice, however. Soda pop is not even free on this cruise. That was amazing. Make sure you have travel arrangements at every port because nothing is close to the ports you stop at. You need to have planned in advance a rental car or transportation from the port to where you're going. And everything will cost. Overall cruise was fun, but spent way to much for the value.

Volcanoes were interesting. Rent a car instead of a tour bus.

Pros: Excellent food

Cons: Paying for so many extra things that should be included
