March 2016 - Pride of America to Hawaii
Absolutely the best way to island hop. Although the ship had not completed their renovations before we sailed, it wasn't too much of a hassle because we were off sightseeing most of the time. The cruise line did give everyone $200 credit for the inconvenience. Of the four islands we cruised to, Hilo was my least favorite. The amount of time given at each island was perfect. Excursion offers were great - we felt more comfortable taking the excursions offered through the cruise line than off on our own.
Also, a big thank you to staff member Karen Kukura for her friendly, fast and efficient help!
