Pride of Aloha

The original post had the wrong date of our sailing. We sailed August 13-20th., 2006
Where do I begin!!! What started out as a "Dream" vacation, turned into the vacation fomr "H---"!! This was the WORSE cruise I have been on. There were 11 in our group and 1 toddler.
Cabin was the size of a shoebox, when we paid for a larger one. 3 adults and a toddler shared the cabin and we could not be in the cabin at the same time due to the size. Took 4 calls to housekeeping to get "pack-n-play" for the baby. Room had not been cleaned before we boarded and we called 3 times to housekeeping before they came to clean it.
Service on boared was terrible. Food lines very long at the buffets, restaurants took 2 hours to get served and then the food was cold. The Crossing restaurant was the only decent one on board.
Entertainment was very limited and only lasted about 30 minutes. Nothing to do all day on board. Totally bored if no excursions were planned for the day.
Crew very slow and inexperienced. I sat one day on the pool deck for over 5 hrs. and not one person came up to me to see if I would want something to drink. This happened more than once.
Hardly had any clean linens, room was never vacuumed the entire cruise.
The $10 per day,per person, service charge is a joke, when no service is provided.
I could go on and on, but there isn't enought room to type everything. This was the worse cruise ever!!!! Anyone going on the pride of Aloha, re-consider. We will never, never cruise on NCL again!!!
