A big disappointment

Sail Date: November 01, 2007

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This was our 3rd cruise, first on Norwegian and left a bad taste in our life. The over ship was clean but there were too many cons to have good memories. When we sailed out of Honolulu the captain hit a navagational bouy and the chain wrapped around the prop and the ship dragged that and a huge chain and a 2400 poun weight to Maui. We were delayed in Maui for 2 days and so the trip had to be cut short and we didn't get to see all we had been promised. We had booked shore excursions that had to be cancelled or cut short and when we got back to Honolulu we had booked to visit Pearl Harbor and tour the city but they put us on a bus where some of the other passengers had early flights so we didn't even get to do all of that tour. They offered us $100 credit on our shipboard account. Sure won't sail with Norwegian again.

Pros: The buffett

Cons: The unfair treatment after the captain goofed.

Recommends Pride of America? No.
