7 Night Hawaii (Honolulu Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 02, 2013
Ship: Pride of America
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple

The best part of this cruise is the fact that the ship stops in Maui and Kaui overnite so you actually have 2 days in each port and not have to rush back to the ship. Also loved going by the volcano at night and the coastline of Kaui in the day time. The food was ok, some of it actually very good. The steaks in the main dining room were poor with no real taste. Service was good. We had heard that since the cruise was based in U.S. the staff weren't attentive which we didnt find to be true. They were slightly understaffed becuase the ship was trying to prevent the spread of a stomach virus (which my wife got anyway) so all buffets were plastic wrapped and no passagner could touch any food. It was all handed to you by waitstaff. The ship needed some updating and it is going in for refitting shortly. The shows were also medicore but we weren't there for shows, the real treat were the Hawaiian Islands.All in all it was a good time for us and I would recommend it.
