Norwegian Cruise Line announced this morning that their US based ship, Pride of America, will enter dry dock in March 2013 for a major overhaul.
Pride of America enters a 14-day dry dock on March 23, 2013 in Honolulu, Hawaii. The 2,124-passenger ship will receive major renovations including the addition of 24 ultra-luxurious suites, four Studio staterooms and four inside staterooms; Moderno Churrascaria, the line’s signature Brazilian-style steakhouse; ship wide wireless internet connectivity; new carpeting throughout; flat screen televisions in all staterooms; updated décor; upgrades to the fitness center; new directional signage; renovations to the gift shop, photo gallery and art gallery; and much more.
“As the only large US-flagged cruise ship, Pride of America offers a unique and extraordinary vacation to four of Hawai`i’s most popular islands,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s chief executive officer. “We want to ensure that we are continuing to enhance the guest experience on this one-of-a-kind vessel. Therefore, we are making a major investment – over $30 million – in enhancing this ship with beautiful new suites, studios for solo travelers, new restaurants and more.”
Norwegian Cruise Line’s 2,124-guest Pride of America sails year-round in Hawaii and will open bookings for the new suites on October 1, 2012. Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Destiny will enter dry dock about the same time, transforming into Carnival Sunshine.
