Number of Cruises: 30+
Cruise Line: Norwegian
Ship: Pride of Aloha
Sailing Date: February 13th, 2005
First of all ignore all previous bad reviews as the ship has sorted out all prevouis problems.
I traveled with a group of 120 and we did not have one complaint the whole trip.
For all people who have not cruised the Hawaiian Islands before this is the best way to do it. you are in a port everyday and at two ports you overnight.
This is totally different to any cruise you will take and this is what you must take into consideration.
You are in port for over 90 hrs which is more then any cruise i know for 7 days . So treats the Pride as your floating bedroom you are only really there to sleep and eat, i know it is not the best ship hasn't got the biggest cabins but if your staying in your cabin your missing the Magnificent Hawaiian Islands.
I heard people complaining that they missed the buffet because they were ashore and they would have to wait a hour for the buffet to re start all i can say to those people is missing one meal is not going to kill and if you can't get enough to eat on any ship then you should spend your holidays at home eating .
I played golf allot in Hawaii and the Courses are Magnificent NCL have good deals for the Golf but of Course the courses are not cheap you are playing some of the best courses in the World so expect to Play , They rent Callaway's on board and if you have your own clubs they will store them for you and have them ready at pier side thus freeing space up in your cabin
For the cruise snobs out there the Pride of America (June 2005) and Pride of Hawaii (2006) both brand new and built for Hawaii wait to book on them
