August 2016 - Pride of America to Hawaii
If you would like to see more islands in Hawaii vacation for 7-10 days, the cruise ship is perhaps the best choice. That's why I picked the Pride of America this time. I was totally happy with the time I spent on cruise. We experienced the impact of hurricane Lester on August 29, 2016 and thus the original plan to visit Kona on big island was cancelled and route was also changed. It passed the Molokai and gave us a breathtaking view for the beauty of Molokai island, and the Napali valley on Kauai island during our one day at sea. I saw almost all I would like to see on the each of stopped islands and have no complains at all. If any improvement, I would suggest to let each one know cleaning hand (by using alcohol spray) before entering the dinning room each time (it seems not always strictly implemented). I would like to know the stateroom clean up time; it seems a little too late for the evening clean time in particular. I would recommend others to take the Pride of America if they have a chance. Thank you!
