Pride of America Cruise Review to Hawaii
Sail Date: November 17, 2007
Ship: Pride of America
Cabin Type: Balcony

Review SummaryThis is a different cruise.
If you like a very relaxed atmosphere, this is it. There is not the constant pressure to buy drinks; in fact, I was only asked if I wanted drinks while I was sitting in the performance venues.
The entertainment was marginal, and there was not very much entertainment offered.
There was little variance in the food. The buffet was mostly the same every day.
We had a noise problem with our room and they moved us to another room the next day... very responsive.
The predominantly US crew did not appear to work as hard to make the cruise enjoyable... they were not overly friendly.
Our room was clean, but the public areas were not.
