 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 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 very...read more

    Two ladies off to Hawaii! I have cruised on two NCL cruises before and am sold on Freestyle cruising. I am no longer interested in having to dress up, assigned dinner table or time or the...read more

    We were skeptical upon reading some of the reviews. We usually stay at Four Seasons Resorts, but since we did an entire family cruise(13 of us), we decided to try this one. Boy, did we have a...read more
