7 Night Hawaii (Honolulu Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 25, 2015
Ship: Pride of America
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 10057
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Overall, a mediocre experience which agreed for the most part with what I expected.  Poor quality food, mandatory tips ("service charges") and poor excursions.  We also had to wait over four hours before we could get inside our stateroom.  The destinations were nice, however, but that had little to do with the ship and line itself.  It would be nice if a better cruise line (Princess, or in my dreams - Regeant) did Hawai'i as well.

Did only a few, but they weren't too great.

Some shows are good, most are crappy nostalgia.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
They do work hard, but they don't have what they should to do their job excellently

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
A ship only ten years old that seems much older and in worse shape than the Marco Polo after 37 years.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Never seemed to be clean

Ship Tip

The library is always quiet and rarely occupied, although someone was pitching a pyramid scheme ("for Jesus") one night. I hope no one swallowed the bait.

I've been here before, it's pretty dumpy given all the hype.
