Review summary

I have been on many cruises and the Pride of America Hawaii cruise was a good idea in theory but ended up being quite disappointing.

The boat did not offer anything special, the food was fine (exactly the same menu as our Alaska sailing), it was a very small boat also which made it very turbulent on the water.

I also booked a 2 room suite. And even after talking with multiple agents and NCL directly all assured me it was 2 bedrooms.

This was a stressing point to me because I was traveling with an infant and we needed a separate room.

But come to find out it is a large room divided into 2 by a privacy curtain. Hardly the same thing and definitely not what I was assured.


Also there are no liquor packages sold on this cruise. We were told due to it still be in the US territory they were not allowed to offer those packages.


So overall, if you want to see Hawaii I would recommend seeing it the old fashion way: little island hops and resort stays. You will be more comfortable.
