Norwegian Cruise Line LuaiOverview
The Norwegian Cruise Line Pride of America is the only U.S.-flagged ship of any major cruise line.  Because of that unique distinction, it is the only major cruise ship that can offer inter-island cruises that begin and end in the beautiful state of Hawaii.  Other cruise ships offering Hawaiian cruises depart from California and typically take about four days before they arrive in Hawaii and another four days for the return trip to California.  So, unless you’ve got plenty of time to spare and you don’t mind eight days at sea plus whatever time you spend actually cruising Hawaii, that might not be the best alternative for you.  But, if you’re like many people who want to see as much of the beautiful Hawaiian islands as possible within a much shorter period of time, a cruise on the NCL Pride of America is the best (and only) way to go.

Norwegian Cruise Line GolfEvery week of the year, Norwegian Cruise Line’s Pride of America embarks on a 7-night cruise that departs from Honolulu (O’ahu) and visits the most enchanting islands in Hawaii, including Maui, Hilo, Kona and Kauai.  And, because the ship travels between the islands at night, passengers on the Pride of America can see much more of Hawaii in 7 days than Hawaiian resort guests who stay at overpriced local Hawaiian hotels and then have to continuously pack and unpack as they hop from island to island on small planes.  So, rather than dealing with the cost and stress of island hoping, your 7-night Hawaiian cruise on the Pride of America is relaxed and affordably priced.

Norwegian Cruise Line TepanyakiBuilt in 2005, the Pride of America is 80,439 tons, 921 feet long and 105 feet wide.  She holds 2,138 guests (based on double occupancy) and 946 crew members.  Despite its unique distinction as the only major U.S.-flagged cruise ship, the Pride of America is, in many other respects, similar to other ships in the Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) “Freestyle Cruising” fleet.  It has 14 options and 9 lounges plus a very wide selection of staterooms including budget-priced interior accommodations, ocean-view (with and without private balconies) and suites.  But it also has some features that won’t be found on other NCL ships (or any other cruise line’s ships), such as the largest meeting facilities at sea (one full deck) and the Tiffiny glass-domed Capitol Atrium, which affords guests a fabulous view of Hawaii’s beaches, waterfalls and volcanoes.  Another unique feature of the Pride of America is that it does not have a casino (because it cruises exclusively within the U.S. territorial waters of Hawaii).  But, that doesn’t mean you won’t find plenty to do day and night.  Theater, sports, shops, and activities abound.

So, if you are looking for the fastest and most economical way to experience the natural beauty of the Hawaiian Islands, make your reservation today on the NCL Pride of America.

Consumer Review:Good qaulity and good standard. The buffet had a big varity and was tasty. Good muscians in the shows
Consumer Review:The cruise through Hawaii is the way to go to see the islands!
Consumer Review:This ship qualifies as a 'No frills' experience. There is no casino because it is US registered and that is okay, but the entertainment was the worst we have ever seen on any cruise and this was our 10th one. There were no singers and dancers and the comedian and magician were so-so. The food in the dining room was mediocre, but the service was good and the waiters were very nice and quite entertaining. The cabin was very nice, but the shower doors banged so we had to put a washcloth between them so we could sleep. We ate in the Italian specialty restaurant and it was terrible - the food was below par and the service was terrible especially given that we paid extra for the meal. It was the last specialty restaurant that we went to. The ports of call are spectacular! The ship passed lava flowing into the ocean from Kilauea and that was awesome. The captain turned the ship around to make another pass so that everyone had a chance to see it which was going the extra mile. The luau at the Manor House was fabulous (both food and entertainment)! If you do this, pay the extra for the Manor House because you get a train ride around the grounds, are served your meal in the Manor House restaurant, and then are escorted to the bus back to the ship and do not have to wait in line with the 350 other people attending. All in all, the ship is not so great, but if you want to see multiple islands, it's a good way to do it.
