The Pride of America is a nice ship\, but does not compare to the current ships afloat today. The ship does have nice amenities (the gym is really nice\, specialty restaurants are nice\, comfortable lounges)\, but the showrooms and bars are basic. The ship is easily accessible via elevators and stairwells...making moving around the ship comfortable. The entertainment onboard is tailored to an older population (over 50 year olds will enjoy). Alcoholic beverage costs were high (as usual on cruises)...we were not aware of any packages oath than the wine 20% discount that would mitigate the costs. Also\, excursions offered by NCL are priced higher than if you purchase them locally\, but the convenience of booking ahead may be worth it.

Overall\, this is a great choice for first timers to Hawaii.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Free style dining is very convenient\, but you do lose the familiarity with your wait staff.

Some work is needed to update entertainers (comedian was bad\, DJ was okay\, singers were just good enough to be cruise ship singers).
