7 Night Hawaii (Honolulu Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 27, 2009
Ship: Pride of America
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 8 years ago

Great ship - a little smaller than the mega-ships. One pool. A nice private resturant if you are staying in one of the suites - well worth it! Ship is pretty modern and the layout is very efficient and pleasing.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food about as good as the usual cruise stuff. The best place was the private resturant accessible to guests in suites.

Having cruised 7 or 8 times now, I have become increasingly weary of cruise-sponsored excursions. Thier advertizing bullies you into believing that freelance shore companies are all criminals and the only safe way to go is with the cruise company. But, the cruise company packs you into enourmous groups, subjects you to the "pre-excursion shopping stop" then the "post-excursion shopping stop", then the "buy cruise merchandise pitch". You're better off in most cases doing your own research and setting up your own excusions. The one excepetion is Luau Kalamaku. Do not miss this one.

Children's Programs

Get your kids involved! It is safe and they will love it. Biggest mistake we made on previous cruises was not letting the kids go do their own thing.
