Not so good
Pride of America Cruise Review to Hawaii
Sail Date: January 17, 2015
Ship: Pride of America
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 3 years ago
Ports of call were great, but the ship was greatly understaffed. Tables in buffet were not cleared promptly. Half and half containers near coffee urn were frequently empty. Spills were not cleaned promptly. No staff around to help.
We had little to no contact with room steward.
In the restaurant we ordered medium to well done steaks - they were raw in parts - not even rare. Very limited menue in restaurants.
In the smoking area ashtrays were seldom emptied, If you wanted a drink, you had to go to bar and get it yourself. They did have a coffee set up in the early am (a nice touch), but the coffee was cold to warm - no where near hot.
Our last excursion which was to take us to the airport was horrible. The longest amount of time off the bus (one hour) brought us to the Dole Plantation - a massive souvenir tourist trap. We were dumped at the airport 6 hours before flight time. For 129 dollars a person (we had a party of four) this was a complete waste.
