7 Night Hawaii (Honolulu Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 09, 2007
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The Pride of Hawaii is a beautiful, new ship with some problems. The staff is poorly trained and supervised. No one runs a "tight ship". There is much that is done sloppily. Is this because the staff knows that they will receive a certain % as a tip and so they have no incentive----OR has the staff been poorly trained. Everyone seemed friendly enough, that was not a problem. No one went beyond the limit of their particular job.

We (6) took a private taxi tour. We visited the Place of Refuge and explained it's significance to the children. Then we swam at a public beach. Had lunch at the Kona Inn-very nice.
Don't Miss: Place of Refuge

We rented a car to visit Volcano National Park. Saw the Chain of Crater road, the lava tubes and Pele's home. Left an offering for Pele. Had a snack lunch at Volcano House which was food, but not much good.
Don't Miss: Thank you Captain for showins us the lava at night-Beautiful and frightening!

The younger folk in our group took the Zipline Tour and LOVED it! We drove to Waimea Canyon for the spectacular scenery. The following AM we swam at a public beach where an endangered Monk Seal crawled up to rest on the beach.
Don't Miss: Zipline Tour and Waimea Canyon
