Recommends Pride of America? Yes!

Ship Quality
Ship about the right size since you are in port each day. Not too big or small. You can get around fairly easy although getting to the dining rooms can be a bit confusing if you happen to be on the wrong side of the ship.
Food and Dining
Aloha cafe had a good variety. You can usually find something tasty. Plenty of fruit and salads and a good variety of different daily dishes plus sandwiches, pizza, burgers, hot dogs, fries and onion rings. Food was ok in the dining rooms and no reservation is necessary for 4 or less. Some dishes were better than others. Desserts were not always up to my expectation, though. Cadillac Diner was a good choice for burgers, wings, spinach and artichoke dip, potato skins, fish and chips, brownie Sundies, etc. There is a charge for shakes, though. Little Italy was the only specialty restaurant we tried but it has some awesome pizza, fried calmari, salads, parmesan chicken, shrimp risotto, pasta, etc. Their bread is good to dip in a little olive oil, balsamic vinegar and pepper too.
Cabin / Stateroom
Overall clean. Snug at times but comfortable. Had a fridge that was pre-stocked with items for sale but we asked that all be removed, then we had room to chill our own water. Our ocean view room was appointed with a small fridge, blow dryer and a safe.
Evening entertainment we attended was enjoyable.
Service and Staff
In general, all the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. Our cabin attendant was the best!
