Great Itinerary but Freestyle Cruising??
Pride of America Cruise Review to Hawaii

Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple

Review SummaryWhat a shame, you pay a good hard earned dollar for the cruise and they nickel and dime you to death for everything else. If you don't make a dinner reservation two days before you are out of luck. The entire premium restaurants have an additional up charge of $10-$20, in addition if you want the larger steak or the better meals there is another additional up charge. Free style dining is for the people who don't care they paid a thousand or so for their cabin and dont mind dumping another $200 to $500 additional for meals. I will never do this freestyle type dining again. In addition to that, they charge $10 a day per adult and $5 for children in for tipping. That tipping fee is not included in the upscale restaurants. I guess I had my expectations set much higher from a competitor, one price and all meals included.
