Pride of America
7 Night Hawaii (Honolulu Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 09, 2012
Ship: Pride of America
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago
The ship was nice but the cabins were very small. Even with a balcony, the room seemed small and cramped.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Plenty of dining options, but service in main dining room was very slow, even when it wasn't completely full.


3 out of 5
I actually fell asleep watching the variety show with singing & dancing to Broadway show tunes. The comedian - Bud Anderson was very funny. Most shows seemed geared to the older crowd.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
I don't believe anyone went "above and beyond". The wait staff in the speciality dining rooms were very good. What I expected all wait staff to be like, but they weren't.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Cabins quite small compared to other cruise lines.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Stateroom very small even with a balcony. Staterooms larger on other cruise lines.

Pros: Being able to visit 4 Hawaiian islands

Cons: Being mislead about viewing lava from the ship one night on board. Also the manager of the main dining room was extremely rude.

Recommends Pride of America? Yes!
