Maiden Voyage-A Beautiful Experience

Sail Date: August 01, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was gorgeous, very clean and beautiful decorated. The staff was friendly and helpful. Since it was the maiden voyage (May 2006) from San Francisco to Hawaii, it was a longer than usual trip and we got to know some of the staff very well. The cultural presentations were marvelous,and it was obvious how much love for their native land these people have.

Pros: The Native Hawaiian Cultural Shows

Cons: A Few Grumpy Passengers (some people aren't happy no matter what!)

Recommends Pride of Hawaii (RETIRED)? Yes!

We found no end of fun things to do, although we were happy just enjoying the scenery.
Ship Quality
Great in every way!
Food and Dining
From gourmet dining to everyday meals-plenty of choices
(the deserts were unbelievable!)
Cabin / Stateroom
Fantastic balcony view! We could have spent the whole cruise on the balcony!
Service and Staff
One member of the entertainment staff, Gary, introduced himself the first night and we asked his advice on activities and dining. We ran into him several times while onboard and he remembered us and was always friendly and helpful. Another member of the excursion staff was a Hawaiian native who gave us his honest opinion about which trips were the most for the money. In fact, on one of his days off he went on the same excursion as us, which he had recommended.
