Great way to see Hawaii; by elemus20

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Good way to travel to different islands in Hawaii. Not the best cruise experience because no gambling and lack of drink package (haiwaiian law), also service/food was just ok. Didn’t docpaid for dinner but main dining room food was lack luster. Would recommend to anyone looking for an easy way to travel Hawaii but not for solely cruise experience

Birthdays and Beaches by ecthebear

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

We had an unbelievable experience, but it was your staff that made it that way, in comparison to your ship and ports. You need to consider renovating the ship, fairness in beverage and excursion pricing, and the 20% gratuity on everything. We want to tip the workers, but you charge us too much for everything, so the best part of the cruise, the workers, are uncertainly compensated by us. Also, 36 hours on the Big Island. Pick a port but we didn't have time to explore like Kauai or Maui. E

Very pleased with Pride of America ship and crew. Loved our large balcony cabin and Carmen, our steward. Beautiful sites all along the trip, especially seeing the volcano from our balcony and awesome rainbows while viewing the Na Pali coast.

All-in-all an enjoyable vacation. I recommend. We arrived two days prior to the cruise and stayed in Waikiki. Hilton Hawaiian Village is a nice part of the beach area.

Due to missing 2 ports, it was an "okay" cruise. Excursions are expensive.

Mediocre NCL Cruise by akiser4

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

We were not even informed at check-in that the ship was not departing until Sunday. NCL should have done a much better job communicating that information, They were quick to email all sorts of solicitations prior to the cruise, but failed to email the important information. I understand that NCL had no control over the volcano, but they handled it very poorly for their guests. I paid for 4 ports and only really experienced 2 ports. The port in Maui where we moored, Lahina, we had already covered with our rental car. Changing the scheduled days in Maui could have easily been a real problem. I had reservations for a rental to be picked up on Sunday and was able to get that changed to Monday, but once again that cost $85 dollars extra. I also had reservations for Mama's Fish House that had been made a month prior. Since we already had the reservations and just needed to change the date, the restaurant worked with us - they understand customer service. I paid full price, for 5 guests that is, for half a trip. The extra day in Honolulu, cost me money because we spent it off the ship - transportation, food, etc. The whole itinerary change saved NCL a ton of money (food, fuel, port charges, etc.) and cost the guests dearly. The prices of everything onboard were so overpriced that NCL could have easily offerered each guest $200 onboard credit. This would have cost NCL very little and been a gesture welcomed by the guests. The shore excursions endorsed by the ship were average at best for the prices charged. The availability, for the number of guests onboard, of excursion choices was very limited with only 2 ports. The excursions that we took on our own were much better. I could not recommend NCL shore offerings to future guests. NCL tried hard on the little things and really blew it on the bigger, more important things.

Very disappointing in the quality of this cruise for the price we spent + plus the lack of communication re: port changes by Queenie0417

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

We were not notified of the last minute port changes until we checked in. All of the first 5 days of ports changed, therefore canceled the excursions that were originally booked. Then when on board, the excursion desk did not have the new ports excursions set up (nor did they have a sign telling us) so we waited for 45 mins only to find out we had to come back the next day and they were not clear on time, so literally had to stalk the desk to figure out when they were available. When they were available, all excursions were sold out. The food was mediocre and the service in the buffet was horrendous. Cabin steward was awesome!

This cruise was better than the same one we did 12 years ago. The staff was more professional and the food was better. Our only complaint was a consistent bad odor in the room that the staff tried to take care.

We should have been offered a partial refund due to the fact that we had 2 ports removed from our itinery and they were not replaced. VERY disappointing!! Not sure ee will ever cruise NCL again.

The best laid plans... by SarahHarris

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Booking process excellent. Kimberly Lindsay is a gem...Itinerary changes were no one's fault, but very disappointing. Spent way too much time in two few ports, Food mediocre. Menus in main dining rooms boring. Crew amazing! Great service! Shows, with the exception of Fred Bevell, Toby Beau and Divas 3( all great, and we live in the land of great, Las Vegas), nothing special...

Hawaii Cruise by Jim1008

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

My previous three cruise experiences was on Disney and NCL does not come close to meeting them. Only reason we tried them was their itinerary. Did not want to spend for days cruising to Hawaii. They want to charge you for everything in addition to their cruise price (which is not cheap). The food in the main dining rooms is just OK, nothing outstanding. They want you to spend the extra money and buy meal packages to their specialty restaurants. We tried their Asian restaurant and they had four choices and one was a vegetarian selection. Appetizers were good. Their attention to their public areas (restrooms) is lacking and very noticeable. We will not use NCL again.

On Pride in Hawaii by stwells2001

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was our 18th cruise (fourth on NCL). They really have it down to a science getting people on & off. In all of our previous cruises, this one wins! There was NO crowding, NO confusion, No jamming people on decks and in stairwells to get off for port calls or disembarkation. Very impressive. The comedian and the comic-magician were hysterically funny. Of the minor "irks", I had bought 250 minutes of Wi-Fi, arrived on Sat. but couldn't see the person needed to show me how to use it until Mon. , so I lost minutes. The food was varied and the usual fare on ships. The Cadillac Diner was good. Several others we met agreed with us that we had cabin stewards but didn't see them for several days. They kept the rooms clean somehow. Take as many shore excursions as you can. We would have liked an area with music for older couples' dancing and not the loud stuff late at night. There is so much to see, and so much variety. You'll sure need rest before & after!

Very Disappointed by calawyer

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

Our cabin was suppose to have 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, but, instead had 1 bedroom and 1 bath. This was a huge setback and really hard to get past. The trip was in celebration of my mother's 80th birthday and we were traveling as 3 adults and 1 child. Ever effort had been made to confirm the layout of the cabin with both our BJ agent and NCL agent. We have taken a cruise with NCL every year since 2013 and the accommodations have always been 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. NCL's response to its mistake was to disappointing, as well. NCL basically said, hope that there were things that you enjoyed about the trip and next time check with our agent....which we did, so we know that doesn't guarantee anything. We will not longer be cruising with NCL.

What a great way to see Hawaii! by rileyswa

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This is not a party cruise. This is not a teenager or lots of family/kids cruise. It was in February, we are in our 50's and we were "young" onboard, but it was a terrific cruise all around and it was really a pleasure. We plan to bring "grandma!" back next year to sail with us and it was such a pleasure to have a calm, peaceful relaxing pool area (secret: We NEVER had to fight for a deck chair!) area to enjoy daily. Will definitely be back again. Like the crew/staff are well paid, well, tipped, well taken care of as this is an American registry ship. NCL Should be PROUD of it's Pride of America!
