Aloha from Honolulu,
I've received, vie email, comments from several passengers who have confirmed that crew have been moved from the Pride Of Aloha onto the new Pride Of America. Passengers have reported to that this staffing change has been given as an excuse for reduced levels of service on the Pride Of Aloha.
I was at a luncheon last week and a woman told me that her "significant other" was in Germany with the new Pride Of America. She told me that the best employees had been sent to Germany leaving the Pride Of Aloha poorly staffed.
Plan on doing another set of interviews with exiting passengers later this month.
It should be noted that I also have interviewed passengers of other ships as they arrive here in Honolulu Harbor. But they usually have the same response. "We had a great cruise".
