While the most of the Pride of Aloha cruise reviews were positive at sites such as Cruisereviews.com, Cruisecritic.com, and Cruisemates.com, there were some concerns â€“ mainly about the staff which is 99 percent American. Miami Beach 411 (miamibeach411.com) had this to say, â€œNorwegian Cruise Lines ran into trouble with the debut of Pride of Aloha for two reasons. One was that the ship’s unique American-flagged status meant that 99 percent of its employees must come from the U.S. The U.S. has not been a player in the onboard staffing of cruise ships; in America, there’s not the same culture or tradition of cruise work.â€? Subsequently, most of the negative Pride of Aloha cruise reviews also detailed problems the passenger had with an â€œunresponsive,â€? â€œunpleasant,â€? and â€œunhappyâ€? staff.
