7 Night Hawaii (Honolulu Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 27, 2011
Ship: Pride of America
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 6 years ago

I loved the free style cruising. We knew this would be a different type of cruise than to the Carribean for example. We were on tours all day and knew we would be exhausted when we got back to the ship - free style meant we did not have to get dressed for dinner which suited us fine and utilized the aloha cafe most evenings. The selection there was great and varied so we were very happy. Salad bar was excellent, soups were really good too and we had prime rib and asian and italian - could not think of a reason we wanted to do the dining room. Comedian show was hysterical.

we did Kona by land and sea - by land part was ok but the by sea part was fun - and we were joined by at least 20 dolphins along the way - and the live entertainment was great

we did Eco-safari and I have to say the rainforest zoo was a disappointment and the nut factory was not much either and you can get the same nuts almost anywhere you stop but the geo-thermal pool was great
5 out of 5
we did the road to hana - it was long but well worth it - lots of waterfalls and scenery and our guide was very good we also did we did best of Maui and Ocean center - the ocean center was the best part the tunnel you can walk thru while sharks and rays swim over your head was very cool

Pros: We had a fabulous penthouse suite

Cons: wish food was hotter but when you have that many people to feed I guess its difficult

Recommends Pride of America? Yes!
