 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.

    This is my 4th cruise overall, my 2nd experience with NCL, but my first time on Pride of America. For the most part, I was pleased and surprised, since I had read some not so good more

    Enjoyed the experience but Christmas is too busy - probably would enjoy a smaller ship at another time of year Overall the food was good bearing in mind there were 2600 people on board more

    Good shoulder season price ($650 balcony) encouraged us to book the Pride. This was probably the most exhausting cruise, since we were in Port every day, and up and off the ship by 8a to get more

    This ship doesn't deserve to be called Pride of America. What a dismal experience! The food was "food court" at the best of times. Most staff were very friendly, however, except for one more

    The staff was really nice. We had to wait 2 hrs. for our cabin to be ready. At 5pm still no luggage and my husband found them at the opposite end of our hall just sitting there! The cabin more

    Best trip ever because of the beautiful islands! We rented cars and did our own excursions which saved us a lot of money. The cruise line excursions are extremely expensive. Book more

    Once you get out of the cement jungle of Honolulu you really appreciate what Hawaii really is. Cruising is a very beautiful and effective way to sample the true life, culture and beauty more

    We were skeptical having cruised once before with NCL. When you think that things couldn't be worse the Pride of America made NCL's Jewel into a real Jewel. The staff was rude, one waiter more
