  3. Pride of America
My cousin and I had a wonderful girls vacation on the Pride of America! They only thing that could have made our trip a little better was less rain, but the crew had no control over that! The Napoli Coastline was beautiful and I would have liked another highlight or two more like that while on the ship. The food was wonderful & accesssability to food was available nearly 24/7! They ran out of a few food items, and service was a bit slow at the Liberty restaurant, but it wasn’t a huge deal. I celebrated a birthday on the ship. I think they were uploaded to sing and bring me a cake, but they forgot. I didn’t really need it anyway and may have enjoyed a drink more than more dessert (which was readily available on the ship). They also offered me $50 off a spa treatment, but you still had to pay another $100 or so for a service. Would have been nice to just get a little free service, like nails done or hair do or something, but I guess everyone needs to make a living;). We went to a bunch of great entertaining shows and also learned how to make several different types of leis! I was also impressed with security coming off and onto the ship, although getting off the ship the last day was a bit hectic (long lines to get off and confusion as to if we took our own bags off or tagged them). The gentlemen taking care of our rooms were also fantastic and always had our room looking great! Hawaii is a beautiful part of the United States and the Pride of America was a great way to see several of Hawai’s many islands.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Hilo
    Thought maybe we’d hear more about and see more volcanoes. But it was still a great tour. Had to wait kind of a long time last when they said we needed to be there to start the tour. But the bonus was that they left with the first group of people and then some of our people didn’t show up, so we had a nice small group. The tour guide was super nice and had an umbrella, ponchs, and walking sticks for us to use and gave us water and granola bars. A traditional Hawaiian lunch would have been a nice addition to this tour, but it was fairly inexpensive to eat at Muana Loa Macademia nut planatation also. I lied stopping at rainbow falls (despite the torrential rain) and also stopping at the Muana Loa factory. A good tour overall, better if it hadn’t rained, but we all know the tour company had no control over that!

  • Kona
    Visited Kona coffee company and painted church. Also toured more of the city. And then got on a catamaran and went out to see Captain Cook landing (and place of death), where cannon balls hit the sides of the volcanoes and saw whales and dolphins! It was an amazing day!!
