Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Suite

We had a Deluxe 2 Bedroom Penthouse, so - our rating is a little tained towards the 'excellent' side! Separate breakfast/lunch dining was great!
Everything about this ship was great- only drawback (if I had to pick one) is the Italian Restaurant was so-so! Other than that - the service was outstanding and the ship was beautiful! This was a port intensive cruise, and not a ship intensive! So, with that being said - paradise was GREAT! Service was GREAT!!! This was my 22nd cruise (7+ days) - It's going to be hard to beat this one!!!! Wonderful Time - Great Cruise!!!!!!! Would highly recommend!



Recommends Pride of America? Yes!

Since we were on shore all day - after dinner, we were soooo tired - did not
really get a chance to see much of the entertainment. What we did see was
average to good!
Children's Programs
We celebrated my girlfriends daughters 16th birthday - She went to the teen club, but there were no teens (or even noticeable children) on the cruise!
No problem though!!!!
Ship Quality
Ship was CLEAN - French Restaurant was incredible!!!! Saw no problems, but then - did not go looking for any! Nothing came to mind that was negative!
Food and Dining
We ate in alternative restaurants all but one (1) night! However, buffet was average - tasty! The Italian alternative restaurant was 'iffy' - could have been better!
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a Deluxe two (2) bedroom penthouse - what can I say - AMAZING!!! The service was TOP NOTCH!!!!
Service and Staff
My experience with the crew was 'EXCELLENT'!!!! No Problems at all!!!!!!
Kahului, Maui
Beaches were GREAT!
Hilo, Hawaii
Mt. Manau Kea (spelling) was the BEST EXCURSION I have ever been on! Really! This is a MUST!!!!
Don't Miss: Mt. Manau Kea (spelling)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
Loved the town- went to Turtle beach to swim, but they posted a shark warning as we got there. NO swimming!!!! Oh, well!
Nawiliwili, Kauai
Excellent everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
