Just off best cruise ever!

I am in love with Hawaii. The NCL pride of America cruise is genius. It is a great way to see the islands over a week.

That being said, the ship itself felt far short of DCL from our experiences. I didn't see that much of the ship actually as we were so busy off of it. We were generally too tired to do much at night onboard but when we tried we were disappointed. The target demographic for the entertainment was for a more senior base. The comedy was awful.

My big thing is the dining. Being suite guests we had access to the new Cagneys signature restaurant for breakfast and lunch. That was great but we did notice a drop in quality / freshness as the week went on. Dinner there was very good and surpassed Palo for me. The Italian up charge place was good as was on par with Palo. We only ate at a regular restaurant (skyline) once and the food / service was pretty good. There was a band playing and it was loud, it had a wedding / banquet feel to it. We did the exclusive Chefs Table. One seating for 12 guests during the cruise. At $89 including wine pairing it was a good value. It was 9 courses, included a couple and group photo with the chef with a signed menu (no rose though). I still liked Remy better honestly. I did like that at the end there was no bill or request for addnl tip for the chefs table experience.

It was nice having auto gratuities and we tipped a few special folks with cash who took good care of us.

They did not provide any comment cards or ask for any feedback. So weird compared to DCL.
