We are interested in booking Honeymoon on Pride of Hawaii. Would appreciate any reviews/photos of ship, food, service, etc. Looking to book a balcony room and wanted to know if they have any non-smoking rooms and balconies. We would like to be facing ocean seeing that ship is docked most of trip, does anyone know which side is facing the ocean most of time. Any tips on getting great deals?
They have non-smoking rooms, I don't know about non-smoking decks. Suggest you ask in the NCL message board. Better chance someone just got off of it in there.
As far as which side of the ship - why doesn't anyone ever document this? As I recall, In Honolulu it was port side to the ocean, in Kauai it was starboard. in Maui it was port side, In Hawaii we tendered.
If I had to guess, I would say port side, but I would rather see the shore myself. Water is water. I guess no one ever reports on this because by the time you finish your cruise you don't really think about whether or not it would have made a difference.
I am the editor, but I also speculate, ask questions and play devil's advocate. I reserve the right to change my mind.
