7 Night Hawaii (Honolulu Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 30, 2007
Ship: Pride of Hawaii
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ship itself was impressive, large, and had a variety of things to offer. We enjoyed our trip overall, but we did not honestly enjoy the "freestyle" type of cruising. This type of structure mininizes a traveller's chances of socializing on a continual basis with a group of other travellers during the dining time, and we found that people often were hesitant to sit beside others in the buffet style restaurant and if they did, the conversation was minimal and often interrupted by others coming and going. Every other person who had a conversation about the ship with us while we were on our cruise said they felt the same way about freestyle in comparision to the traditional way of cruising. It does have it's benefits in not being tied to a certain time for eating, but the frustration with making bookings and the associated costs in the nicer restaurants and the lack of socialization outweighed that benefit.

We snorkeled off a catamaran, which was a fun trip but as I understand it after the fact there was better sites on other islands.

We rented a car and drove to the canyon and then up the northern coast. This island was in our opinion the most beautiful, and just had a different feel to it when driving around - the communities seemed better taken care of and more picturesque
Don't Miss: the canyon

The Road to Hana was spectacular. We rented a car and drove all about. Driving to the volcano summit was great to do and the view was incredible.
