Pride of Hawaii

7 Night Hawaii (Honolulu Roundtrip)

Sail date: January 08, 2007

Ship: Pride of Hawaii

Cabin type: Balcony

Traveled as: Couple

Reviewed: 15 years ago

Review summary

The ship was new and the staff was friendly. The service, however was poor, except for the specialty restaurants. One day our room was not even cleaned. The first night in the Alizar dining room, we had 7 people waiting on us in a very haphazard fashion. Often it seemed as if the staff was overwhelmed. Despite this, we enjoyed the ports and the specialty restaurants. If you do go on this ship, be prepared for long waits for dining at night. Many people were complaining. The embarkation and disembarkstion were smooth. The shows included one illutionist who was on for 3 nights, one broadway show and two talent shows; the crew and passengers. For the money paid, I felt it was only a so-so cruise. This was my 29th cruise on nine different lines
