Ship: Pride of America

Orientation facts about shore excursions were mispresented, for example we were told that there were no rent cars available or have any other means of getting to sites (such as balck lava beaches) except by overpriced ship sponsored excursions.

ship relied on shore excursions for day time entertainment.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
We were under the impression that any alcohol brought on board might be confiscated but returned at the end of the cruise. We were not given that option. It was just confiscated (perhaps for the use of the crew?)
