Overpriced odinary cruiser

Sail Date: April 18, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was ordinary. The cruise, itself, aside from going to Hilo on a Sunday when museums were closed, was about as good as it could have been. We do lots of things during cruises, including gaming. It is one of those times when we do things that we ordinarily do not do. Though it could have been stated elsewhere and missed by us, it was not apparent until we received our cruise documents that there was no gaming on board.

Pros: Tasty food

Cons: Nickel and diming

Recommends Pride of America? No.

Hilo, Hawaii
I really cannot rate this port very well. Not known for its abundant things to do, we docked on Sunday when what there was to do was all closed.
Don't Miss: We had already been therebut Volanoes Park is a must.
Kahului, Maui
Little town with not a whole lot to do. For a golfer, probably a great place to try the links.
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
We had already spent some time in Kona before the cruise, so we only did the Atlantis submarine when we visited.
Don't Miss: Driving aropund and seeing the stark landscape.
Nawiliwili, Kauai
Grand Canyon and Waimea River cruise were nice. Facilities for the river cruise are a little worn, but made up for by the hosts.
Don't Miss: Grand Canyon.
