Lori, I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our GolfAhoy 10 Day VIP Deluxe Circle Hawaii Golf Cruise on the Pride of America.
This was a splurge for me, as I typically do not upgrade to a Suite. This was a once-in-a-lifetime trip. The Suite upgrade was well worth it!
All our accommodations were superb. Our room at the Turtle Bay Golf & Spa Resort had both an ocean and pool view. We loved watching the surfers and the sunsets each evening. Interestingly, there was a yoga convention of some sort while we were there, and all the yoga people enjoying themselves added another fun dimension to our time there.
Our Suite on the ship was perfect – as was Devin, our butler. He could not have been more helpful or delightful to deal with.
Our concierge, Thomas, was also very knowledgeable and helpful. We enjoyed our specialty dining evenings immensely – the food was so good! We actually added a fourth specialty dining night because we enjoyed it so much. We would have added a fifth night, but could not get into any of the restaurants because we waited too long to request a reservation.
The Pearl Harbor tour is something not to be missed. I am so glad we went there. The post-cruise Marriott Waikiki stay was also very nice –the balcony facing the ocean allowed us to enjoy the beauty even more.
What really made this trip easy and enjoyable was the attention to detail you put into it up front. Having the info on where we should be, who we should look for and what to expect up front made everything so much easier. No hassles at all. All drivers were on time, courteous, very friendly and helpful, and very knowledgeable about the area. The golf courses were incredible. Each one got better and better! The ocean views made it hard to decide whether to play golf or watch the ocean! I would recommend this trip to anyone who is considering it.
A suggestion that would have improved a fabulous experience, even more, would be to find a way to get golf clubs off the ship to the ground transportation and then back again. This was a challenge each day.
Lori, thank you so much for all your work on our behalf to make this such a memorable vacation experience. I really do appreciate it!!
