Hawaiian 7 day
Never cruised on NCL. We are thinking about booking the 7 day Hawaiian for next summer.
Reading reviews we have been seeing some pretty bad comments on this cruise as far as service. Can anyone confirm or deny this?
Not interested in NCL as a whole, just the Pride of America and the Hawaiian cruise.

Thanks in advance.

When NCL started the Hawaii itineraries there were in deed a lot of complaints. The reason is because the ships are registered in the U.S. and therefore have to have American crew. The American crew are not used to working the long hours like on other cruises. Service was bad. NCL also had three ships in the market with a lot of turnover of the American crew. They now only have one ship and things have gotten much better. This cruise is more about the destination and not the cruise itself. If you go knowing things may be different than your other cruises then you should have a good cruise.

That is kinda what I was thinking. We are very close to pulling the trigger on a Hawaiian cruise for next year.
Thanks for the help

Just my 2 cents worth. Me and my wife took this same cruise in July of 2009 and loved everything about, ship , food ,service. But we are not the high end type, we enjoy our self's doing just about anything.With that being said we loved it and are planning our return cruise back to the Pride of America next year. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
