History of the Ship
Norwegian Cruises introduced the Pride of America in 2005.  The hull was started by Litton-Ingalls Shipyard in Pascagoula, Miss.  After the owner American Classic Voyages filed for bankruptcy the hull was purchased by Norwegian Cruise Lines for the first of their NCL America Program.  NCL had the hull towed to Lloyd-Werft shipyard in Bremerhaven, Germany to be lengthened and finished.  She was completed in 2005.


A special exemption by the United States government allowed the largely foreign built ship to be registered in the United States.  With an American registration she could now sail the
lucrative Hawaiian market without going to a distant foreign port.

What's on Board
Pride of America is staffed by Americans.  There are 12 places to eat onboard from Aloha Cafe (buffet style service) to Cagney's Steakhouse serving your favorite cuts of beef.
