Beautiful islands on an ok ship
Pride of America Cruise Review to Hawaii
I would definitely recommend this cruise to anyone who wants a good overview of what the islands have to offer. Good selection of excursions for seeing lots of amazing and beautiful sights. The ship itself was ok, but not outstanding. I guess that's what you can expect when there's no real competition allowed for other cruise lines to offer a similar trip. Cabin was smaller and more crowded than other cruise lines we've been on, though it was clean and the cabin steward was great. The food was only a step above mediocre but we loved all the fresh, juicy pineapple and other fresh tropical fruits available that we just don't seem to find on the mainland.

Cabin / Stateroom
If you can afford it, I would recommend upgrading from window cabin to balcony. It seems that those were considerably larger and the balconies I saw in my exploring the ship were as nearly large as our outside window cabin. The Cadillac Grill is a pretty good lunch place. Not quite so crowded.
