Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) announced the return to service of Pride of America, which it says is the only cruise ship to sail Hawaii year-round. The ship set sail on 09APR 2022 and is available to book through DEC 2025.
NCL’s Pride of America, which is the fifteenth ship in its fleet to return to service, sails weekly seven-day, roundtrip voyages from Honolulu every Saturday, providing guests nearly 100 hours of port time and the ability to explore four islands in a week’s span, according to the cruise line. The itinerary includes overnights in Maui and Kauai for time on land and sights of the Nāpali Coast.
NCL has two remaining ships that will be returning to service, both in early MAY, which will complete the company’s "Great Cruise Comeback."
"Being the only cruise line to sail year-round from Hawai’i, we’re thrilled to be back at last," said Norwegian Cruise Line 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 Hawai’i, while providing travelers with everything they seek from a vacation in paradise."
The cruise line highlights that all guests ages twelve and over, as well as all crew, must be fully vaccinated to embark on all NCL voyages for the "foreseeable future." Guests who are eleven years of age and under are welcome aboard unvaccinated and the guest’s guardian is recommended to be aware of any local protocols and/or travel restrictions in place at the visiting destinations at the time of sailing.
