7 Night Hawaii (Honolulu Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 23, 2016
Ship: Pride of America
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 9626
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

We have been on numerous (over 25) cruises and although we enjoyed the Itinerary, we were very disappointed in the ship.  The rooms were very small with very little closet space.  The couches were so worn they looked dirty and we did not want to sit on it.  The towels had holes in them.  The carpet was worn.  For what we paid for this trip I truly expected more. We went to the specialty restaurants and they were all good except the Italian restaurant.    Food needed to be sent back twice - cold and dried out.  They did comp us for this meal but we were celebrating our 45th Wedding Anniversary so you can imagine our disappointment.   

This is our first NCL Cruise - I think it will be our last.

Food and Dining

The food in the main dining room was cold and repetitive. Nothing special even for the Captains Dinner.

The ship was very tired. The cabins needed to be updated as the couches looked dirty and worn and so did the towels and carpet. Rooms were very small compared to others that we have stayed in.

Ship Tip

The Italian Specialty dining room was a big disappointment. Cold and dried out both times we sent it back. They did end up not charging us, but we were celebrating our 45th Wedding Anniversary and we were looking forward to a great meal. Never happened.
