The views expressed in this review will be presented in as honest a fashion as possible. Some of them may not all be positive, but they will all be accurate from my perspective. None will be presented with malice. I know that others who have taken this trip, maybe the same trip, will have had different experiences and I would love to read about theirs also.
Travelers – Me, DH and our dear friends who will be referenced in this review as DFH and DFW. We are mid-40s to mid-50s and have taken many trips together. We all travel really well together because we all want to see, do and experience as much as possible and we are all up for most any adventure. We are all interested in anything historical, but we all also appreciate a fun time at a Senors Frogs. We are not the types to sleep late and dawdle over coffee when there are things to see and do. But we all can enjoy a nice sea day, or quiet time on the beach. And best of all we are able to find the fun in just about everything we do. This trip was in celebration of DF’s 25th wedding anniversary. I am the chief planner for our trips and I tend to make very detailed and packed itineraries, but I am never opposed to revising them if the situation warrants.
Date – Oct 8 -17, 2010
Ship – NCL’s Pride of America, sailing on Oct 9
Staterooms 4557 & 4555 – Inside deck 4
Booking info – After researching all the options I booked the trip through the local branch of a well know travel club. I was very happy with the cost. Booking through them I was able to get the cruise, 1 pre-cruise night in Waikiki, transfers from the airport to the hotel (we didn’t use those), an airport lei greeting, and transport from Waikiki to the pier for several hundred dollars less than I could find the cruise alone through any other agency or through NCL directly.
Photos – I will post as many photos as I can in the review and at the end of each day’s review include a link to my Picasa web albums so those who wish to can see all of the photos. There are a lot! And these are just mine, they don’t even include the photos BFs took. When viewing the web albums, you will not see captions on every photo, but I am trying to at least put a caption on the first photo of each new location. So when you see a caption, you will know that the at least until the next caption the following photos will all be from that location.
So here we go…..Day One coming up….
