Way above expectations
Pride of America Cruise Review to Hawaii
Great way to see four major islands. Only recommendation I would make is not to do it in the winter rainy season, and the rainfall this week was well above average. Excursions good. Solo traveler studio cabin was outstanding, although the highly touted lounge for the group's use is nonexistent. Service across the board was unbelievably good. Special kudos to my cabin steward, Jonathan. Wide variety of activities on board. Hawaii ambassador programs particularly excellent. Food in Aloha buffet was varied, abundant and tasty. Liberty, food and service disappointing. Cadillac Diner, everything was too salty but the dreamsicle milkshakes were great. Did not try specialty/fee based restaurants.

Stick to the buffet for food. Of all the activities, the piano bar was the only one I walked out of. Singles meetings should at least start somewhere besides the smoking bar. Solo travelers studios are fantastic.
