Pride Of America Out Of Drydock As ‘Nearly New Ship’
Norwegian Cruise Line says its U.S.-flagged Pride of America has returned to her homeport of Honolulu as a “nearly new ship” following a 3½ week dry dock.
Pride received ship-wide enhancements, including newly designed public spaces, new venues and refreshed décor in all staterooms.
The renovation is a part of NCL’s Norwegian Edge program, a $400 million investment in several ships.
“When guests step aboard the all new Pride of America they will be amazed by the breadth of this renovation,” said NCL President & CEO Andy Stuart. “This is much more than just a fresh coat of paint and new drapes. Pride of America is now essentially a new ship, and the only one to offer this incredibly unique way to experience the Hawaiian Islands with 100 hours of time in port.”
Many of the ship’s public spaces, along with several restaurants, bars and lounges, were refreshed from top to bottom to receive contemporary décor and furniture as well as new lighting and flooring.
Every stateroom was touched by the renovation, receiving new bedding, furniture, flat screen televisions and updated flooring.
Dining enhancements include renovations to all of the existing complimentary dining venues, most notably the ship’s Skyline Main Dining Room, which received a refreshed look with new décor.
There are also new menus in all dining outlets offering more freedom and flexibility to guests with additional choices and à la carte priced items in complimentary dining rooms and specialty restaurants.
