Norwegian Cruise Line’s 2,186-passenger Pride of America is the only ship based in Hawaii year-round. The ship sails round-trip from Honolulu and stops at all the major Hawaiian islands, and there is a warm and welcoming aloha spirit — including cultural ambassadors — on board.
And, following a spring 2016 dry dock, Pride of America has a much more modern look. Decor got an upgrade throughout the ship, including all new furniture, updated lighting, and flat-screen TVs in every stateroom. A new look for the main dining room and specialty restaurants, including La Cucina, will be matched with revamped dinner menus in fall 2018.
The pool deck also got a refit, with a refinished pool and new lounge chairs; and the Mandara Spa has nearly doubled in size, boasting floor-to-ceiling sea views from manicure-pedicure stations, a meditation room, and a series of new treatments and luxury salon products.
