Hawaii Cruise March 2015

Sail Date: March 14, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The Pride of America is over ten years old but is well maintained.  We had a balcony stateroom and the room and balcony is one of the smallest staterooms we've experienced in our many cruises with other cruise lines.  We had the ultimate dining package  and booked restaurants in the program for five nights.  The food quality in Cagney's Steakhouse, El Moderno and Jefferson's was very good.  We did not like the East Meets West Restaurant or the Teppanyaki as  the food was very salty. We at most breakfasts at  the Skyline and the food was good.  Dinner at the Skyline was average.  The one thing we experienced in all the restaurants and buffet was the food was warm, not hot.  Pride of America must improve in this area!  We booked two tours with the ship and they were well organized.  We did research and explored most days on our own.  The cruise was a good way to see the islands and save time flying to each island.

Food and Dining
The food was warm, not hot.
Service and Staff
Our room steward was great!
Cabin / Stateroom The cabin was clean but very small. The balcony barely held two chairs and a small table.
Hilo, Hawaii
We visited the Volcanoes National Park. Great tour and awesome views of the crater, steam vents and lava tube
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
Nawiliwili, Kauai


Avoid the buffet as the food quality was average and the food temperature was only warm.
