Pride of America Overview

Launched in 2005, the Pride of America cruise ship belongs to the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet and sails from Honolulu all year round. She is currently the only American-registered cruise ship operating from this port.

The Pride of America specs

A comfortable, mid-sized vessel, the Pride of America weighs 80,439 tonnes and measures 930.3 feet in length. She has the capacity for 2,186 guests and 917 crew members. Her cruising speed is 22.2 knots.

Inside the Pride of America

As the name suggests, Pride of America is a celebration of everything - you guessed it - American. Keep an eye out for American memorabilia on board, including a statue of Abraham Lincoln in the Liberty Dining Room.

Thanks to a bright colour palette, the ship's interior decor is warm, welcoming and slightly playful. Rooms are decorated in a range of colours, such as fuchsia, lime, orange and yellow. This creates a positive, upbeat, holiday atmosphere - this is the type of ship where every element of the design encourages you to have fun and enjoy your vacation.

Pride of America itineraries and shore excursions

The Pride of America schedule is more or less the same all year round, offering seven day round-trips from Honolulu. As you would expect, many of the shore excursions revolve around water sports such as swimming, snorkelling and diving. Outdoor activities are also popular, with ziplining, bike rides and rainforest treks other popular options.

Rest assured, there are also excursions available for less sporty types, such as a glass bottom boat tour or a scenic helicopter ride. No matter which you shore tour you choose, be prepared to be blown away by beautiful views of the stunning Hawaiian landscape.

Cabins on board the Pride of America

Guests can choose from four categories of standard cabins; balcony, oceanview, interior and studio. The studio option is compact at 107 square feet, and best suited to singles or couples who don't plan on spending much time in their rooms (to be fair, it is easy not to, with so many activities and relaxing bars and lounges on board). At the other end of the standard accommodation spectrum are the balcony cabins, measuring 233 square feet with a 95 square foot balcony.

Those looking for a touch more space and luxury can choose from a selection of suites. These range from 356 square feet to an impressive 1,382 square feet with a 490 square foot balcony, and everything in between. Guests who stay in Owner, Deluxe Family or Deluxe Penthouse suites enjoy butler service, complimentary champagne on arrival, priority boarding and other additional perks.

Entertainment on board the Pride of America cruise ship

The Pride of America by day

Where to begin? The Pride of America has an impressive range of activities to choose from. The ship is the ultimate playground for fitness enthusiasts, with basketball and volleyball courts, a golf driving net, a jogging & walking track and a state-of-the-art fitness centre.

Those looking for a more relaxed holiday will find solace at the Mandara Spa or at one of the two pools. The South Beach Pool and hot tubs tend to be a good spot for socialising, while the Oasis Pool is quiet and secluded.

The enrichment programme is excellent and focuses largely on the fascinating Hawaiian culture. Local Hawaiian Ambassadors are on board to lead lectures about the island's environment and history. The Kuku Cultural Centre is like a small museum, with artwork and informative displays about the local culture. Other enrichment activities include dance classes, pool games, outdoor chess, art auctions and trivia.

The Pride of America by night

There's nothing more tropical than enjoying a colourful cocktail with a stunning sea view, and fortunately there are plenty of places to do this on board the Pride of America. Both the Aloha Lanai Bar and the Ocean Drive Bar are excellent spots to enjoy a drink outdoors while making the most of the warm, tropical weather - the perfect way to start an evening.

As the night goes on, the Hollywood Theater and the Mardi Gras Cabaret & Nightclub are the two most popular spots for live entertainment. Broadway and Vegas style shows are on at the Hollywood Theater, while the Mardi Gras is home to a variety of entertainment and has an upbeat, festival vibe. The latter is a family-friendly venue until 11pm, after which it transforms into a late-night dance spot.

Other excellent areas to spend the evening include the Napa Wine Bar, featuring an impressive selection of delicious wines, and Pink's Champagne Bar, a great place to celebrate a special occasion. There is a total of 11 bars and lounges on board, so you are guaranteed to find a watering hole to suit your tastes.

The Pride of America for families

Families are made to feel incredibly welcome on board the Pride of America. The designated youth areas are well-equipped with the latest activities and games, from treasure hunts for the little ones to dance parties for the teenagers.

Children are organised into age-specific groups: Turtles for 3 to 5 year olds, Seals for 6 to 9 year olds and Dolphins for 10 to 12 year olds. Teenagers have their own area and group, called the Entourage Teen Club, which features a bar, jukebox and dance floor.

While in-cabin babysitting is not available, group babysitting runs from 10.30pm to 1.30am each night for a reasonable hourly rate.

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!

La Cucina
Enjoy the flavors of the Tuscan countryside at tables with room for old friends and new. Dine on classic dishes where you can taste the freshness of every tomato used to make an exquisitely delicious sauce. Try a twist on a classic like lobster fettuccine, or keep it purist with a osso bucco. Just when you think you’re out, they’ll pull you back in with a toasty espresso and some macadamia nut ice cream. Delizioso! Deck 11
