Built in 2005, the majestic Pride of America was the first new American-flagged cruise ship built in almost fifty years. The only cruise ship of her kind - in operation or otherwise - the Pride of America is a truly wonderful ship, built to give passengers a true sense of the American dream through the crew, decor, and entertainment. With a capacity of over 2,100 passengers and a working crew of over 900, she is exactly the kind of cruise ship one hopes to encounter on the cruise they’ve been dreaming of for so long: beautiful, unique, and full of little luxurious touches to make your trip special.
As the only cruise ship which sails a round-trip route from Honolulu throughout the year, the Pride of America is specifically outfitted to ensure that every single passenger feels the spirit of Aloha move them for their entire time on board. Norwegian Cruise Lines has gone all out with this beautiful ship and its services, with Hawaiian ambassadors to introduce you to the islands’ native heritage and plenty of balconies (more than any other Hawaiian cruise ship) from which to watch the dramatic landscape drifting by. If you’re lucky, you might even catch sight of a migrating Humpback whale! The Pride of America is by far the best and most exciting way to experience the Hawaiian Islands; thousands of delighted passengers agree with us, and we know you will too. Aloha, e komo mai!
The Pride of America will blow you away with its nineteen separate dining choices, plus ten bars and lounges just waiting for you to sit back, relax, and have a drink. Nine of the dining options are included in the cost of your cruise, including some of the most delicious dining areas you’ll find on any cruise ship running.
The Liberty Main Dining Room will take you back to America’s colonial era with its decor, but the food is modern magnificence itself. The Skyline Main Dining Room, on the other hand, has the Art Deco feel of Manhattan in the 1930s. Elsewhere on the Pride of America you’ll find a wide range of options to suit every craving: the mouth-watering Japanese cuisine of Teppanyaki, the Americana of the Cadillac Diner, the authentic Brazilian steakhouse Moderno Churrascaria, plus Asian fusion, pizza, Italian, and perfect meals straight off the grill. Come on board and you’ll never have to wonder where to eat!
With plenty of shore excursions onto the Hawaiian islands, you’ll rarely find yourself with nothing to do while you’re in port, but you’ll also find yourself eager to get back to the Pride of America and take in the on-board entertainment and activities.
Everything you’d expect on a cruise ship of this caliber is available, making it easy to sit back and relax no matter what you feel like doing. Luxurious hot tubs, cool and refreshing pools, and plenty of fitness opportunities (including the Santa Fe fitness centre, basketball/volleyball/tennis courts, and a walking/jogging track) will keep you feeling your best, while specialized clubs for teens and children, plus quiet oases for the adults make sure that everyone has a place away from the hustle and bustle.
However, make sure to check out what’s special here as well: the Santa Fe spa will rejuvenate you after long hours in the sun, the art galleries are a stunning place for a stroll, and the Hollywood Theatre will delight you with Vegas and Broadway-style shows.
