MIAMI — Norwegian Cruise Line has announced the return to service of Pride of America, the only cruise ship to sail Hawaii year-round.
As the 15th ship in NCL’s fleet to return to service, Pride of America, which set sail on April 9, offers weekly seven-day, roundtrip voyages from Honolulu featuring nearly 100 hours of port time and overnights in Maui and Kauai. Weekly voyages depart Honolulu every Saturday and are available to book through December 2025.
“Being the only cruise line to sail year-round from Hawaii, we’re thrilled to be back at last,” said NCL President and Chief Executive Officer Harry Sommer. “Pride of America will once again offer thoroughly immersive itineraries and deeply authentic experiences that support business and tourism in Hawaii, while providing travellers with everything they seek from a vacation in paradise.”
NCL has two remaining ships that will be returning to service, both in early May, which will complete the company’s ‘Great Cruise Comeback.’ Its fleetwide redeployment continues in partnership with local governments and is guided by the protocols of the company’s Sail Safe Health and Safety program, which requires that all guests ages 12 and over, plus crew, must be fully vaccinated to embark on all NCL voyages for the foreseeable future. Guests who are 11 years old and under are welcome aboard unvaccinated, though it is the responsibility of the guest’s guardian to be aware of any local protocols and/or travel restrictions in place at the visiting destinations at the time of sailing.
