Not Impressed

Sail Date: March 15, 2008

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship itself was clean and neat. The ports of call were great. The staff was rude. The food was less than quality. The entertainment was ok but not spectacular.

Pros: The ship itself was clean, the shore excursions were great!

Cons: Bad staff attitudes and rudeness. Not impressed with the food. Stateroom not cleaned or kept up everyday.

Recommends Pride of America? No.

Service and Staff
This was the most unfriendly rude bunch of staff I ever met. Especially the reception desk and cafe personel.
Food and Dining
Food was not that great and not a lot to choose from unless you went to the buffet. Service was not with a smile usually the staff was in a hurry to get you in and out.
Cabin / Stateroom
The stateroom itself was ok for two people. We did not get our room cleaned or picked up as I thought it should have been. I had to leave notes to get anything done
The entertainment was ok.
Ship Quality
Nawiliwili, Kauai
Not as good as I remembered. The fern Grotto was a disappointment because you can't go in the cave anymore.
Hilo, Hawaii
We went to Akaka falls and it was really great!
Kahului, Maui
We went to Lahaini on our own. It was fun shopping.We went to see Ulelana dinner show. overpriced for what you get
Don't Miss: Go to Bubba Gumps for lunch or dinner. Very good food and drinks.
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
One of our favorite ports. Lots to do on the beach.
Don't Miss: don't miss the beach blast. It really was a blast!
