If you want a great cruise, with traditional cruising experiences, do not take the Pride of America to Hawaii. Except for being upgraded to a wonderful suite, the ship/crew/food were a disappointment. There are a lot of omissions in the brochure, such as availability of dining areas, tipping, on board activities, entertainment and before/after sailing excursions.
This was my 7th cruise, first on NCL, and I would not recommend it to my friends or family.
Hawaii was beautiful, but I would tell my people, if they have the time/money to choose another line for their trip.
