Flagged in the USA, the Norwegian Pride of America is the only ship to sail solely within the USA and in this case around the tropical islands of Hawaii. Your cruise starts and ends in Honolulu – there’s no need to spend days at sea reaching Hawaii.

The Pride of America, as its name indicates, pays tribute to Americana. The Great Seal on the lobby floor and the design therein brings to mind the Capitol building and the heart of the USA. Throughout the ship, you will see memorabilia highlighting the both history of the US and that of Hawaii, which is exhibited in the on board Kuku cultural center. Activities on the ship have a strong Hawaii focus and include events like lei making, hula dancing instructions and more.

Your balcony is the perfect spot to view the outstanding scenery as the Pride of America sails around the gorgeous islands, each different from the previous.


Remember that Norwegian is all about Freestyle. No need to rush back to the ship for an assigned dining time. Eat when you want and with whom you want.
