Disappointment in Paradise

Sail Date: April 02, 2007

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Room Type: Balcony

This was a new, bright, clean ship that was the appropriate size for the islands. However, the majority of the staff needed major attitude adjustments and pride in their positions.

Pros: Excursions offered

Cons: Service..especially in restaurants. Food was mediocre

Recommends Pride of Hawaii (RETIRED) 545? No.

Food and Dining
Service in all restaurants was just horrific. Waiters/waitresses made you feel as though you were bothering them. Long wait time for food to be served. Difficult to get into restaurants. Cover charge restaurants were too many and not worth it.
Service and Staff
Our cabin steward, Ben, was the BEST personality and crew member we encountered on the entire trip. His work ethic and caring attitude were fabulous.
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
Catamaran snorkel/dolphin sail is a must-do.
