Thanks for the awesome review. I can't wait to finish it.

I might get to this later, but, were you allowed to take food off with you? I'm hoping to buy non perishables on Maui day 1 to take with us on day 2. We'll still have to stop somewhere for sodas or water as I'm not paying NCL for those.

Thank you so much for the cruise review. 3 weeks until we start our Hawaii Adventure. Few days in Maui pre-cruise and then join the Pride of America. Should be a great cruise. Lots of fun and adventure planned.

Amazing review. I was invited to the christening of the POA in 2005 in New York. Some day I hope to cruise on the PRIDE OF AMERICA. First large passenger vessel flying the U S flag since the 50s.
I presented a model that I made of the POA and SS UNITED STATES to the captain back in June 2005.
The models have been at the shore excursion desk since.
I feel the ship is a tribute to the US. It was so cool that day to see our flag raised aling with the national anthem.
