Construction Begins on NCL's Pride of Hawaii
Even as Norwegian Cruise Line is gearing up for the much anticipated summer debut of Pride of America, its first custom-designed-for-Hawaii cruise ship, there's also progress on another front.

In a covered building dock at Papenburg, Germany-based Meyer Werft, the first of what will be 67 steel blocks -- marking the construction launch of Pride of Hawaii -- was laid into place on the keelblocks. This was not a small task -- each block weighs some 450 tons, is 20 meters (66 ft.) long, 25 meters (82 ft.) wide and 9 meters (30 ft.) high.

The 92,000-ton, 2,376-passenger Pride of Hawaii, a sister ship to NCL's Norwegian Jewel (which itself is still under construction), is slated for launch in summer 2006.
