7 Night Hawaii (Honolulu Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 05, 2013
Ship: Pride of America
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 7675
Traveled As: Couple

This is a great ship to sail around the Islands! The ship crew and executive staff are very accomodating and friendly. We had an inside stateroom that was very comfortable, especially the bed for a good nights sleep. The food in the main dinng rooms could use some more variety, especially dinner. The buffets for morning breakfasts were very diverse with many choices. Drinks were reasonable and if you wanted a little stronger, you were accomodated. The itenerary was good, with plenty of time to see the main attractions each island had to offer. Shuttles were available to take you into town, tour, or a rental car; free of charge. If you have never been to Hawaii before, and you want to see a bit of each island, this is the cruise to take. Hopefully there won't be another government shutdown, as this disappointed some cruisers if they wanted to see things like Pearl Harbor, and any of the state parks.

The bed was especially comfortable.

Ship Tip

If you like good late night entertainment, then hit the Piano Bar and listen to some great music with dancing. Also, I think they have one of the best bartenders there.

You may want to consider arriving a day or two early to really appreciate Honolulu.

Do the road to Hana if you have the time.
