Interisland cruise is the best way to go for first time visitors to Hawaii who do not know what island to visit.  We saw four beautiful islands and with two days in port on two of the bigger islands, you have time to see some of the beauty.  We rented a car and did some driving which was ultimately cheaper than excursions as there were four of us traveling together.  However, in keeping a car overnight, there was no place to park near the cruise ship and so we had to turn it back in and then pay again.  This was not a pleasant experience - in Maui.

 

The Pride of America is a beautiful ship, with a wonderful crew.  The ship was easy to get around on and we did not get turned around in moving about the ship.  Shows were good, good food - no complaints.

We have cruised on other cruise lines (Carnival) and this experience on Norwegian was much better - better quality of food and more consciousness of keeping germs out of the dining areas - no one got sick - and the last cruise my family went on (6 of us) - everyone got the virus, and then the ship denied there was a problem.

Ship Tip

We ate at the buffet for all of our meals and it was great - always able to find a table and food was excellent, with good variety, and not simply a "recycling" of leftovers at next meal.

Prices in the shops on board very good - in fact jewelry was less expensive on board than on shore.

Honolulu is very industrialized and we did not get out away from the city. However, port is very clean and easy to get on board.

Did a bus tour up to crater, macadamia nut factory, orchid farm. All beautiful, especially the orchid farm. However, there was not enough time at the orchid farm on the tour.

Had to tender off the ship to port. Shops were okay, very crowded.
