 Pride of America

Inaugurated during the summer of 2005 after an incident where the ship actually sank during construction. The Pride of America was made from the hull of former U.S. Cruise Lines (American Hawaii Cruises and others) that went bankrupt shortly after 9/11. She is unique in design and will serve the Hawaiian Islands year around offering a 7-day, 4-island itinerary. The Pride of America is the first U.S. flagged ship in over a half of a century and features and American crew.
