Norwegian Cruise Line
Pride of America
December 10, 2005
First in Hawaii, 4 in Mexico. The Islands were great, however, we did not really know what the "freestyle" cruise was about. Freestyle means you can eat when ever the restaurants are open, no prearranged times. We encountered long wait lines and poor service.
Most all of the service people are 20 something american kids. For the most part, thier minds are a million miles away and do not have the urgency other Cruise lines have for top notch service. The food was poor to acceptable. No tips for the servers, POA added $20.00 a day to your bill for this, but you still tipped the room stewart and service people. The ship was o.k., but not constanty clean. Buffet smelled bad. Would not recommend to anyone. All people we ran into thought the same thing. Eat out at the Islands, forget the Ship food.
