Pride of America Cabins
All cabins on Pride of America are furnished with modern touches, cherry wood finishing, a flat-screen television, radio, phone, mini-refrigerator, hair dryer and safe, and all have Wi-Fi access Space is tight but workable for interior and some balcony cabins and storage space is maximized with wall cabinets, bedside tables and a fairly large closet that can fit at least two suitcases.
The beds in all rooms, with the exception of suites and studios, can be split into two separate twin beds. It is recommended that you request a split bed prior to sailing to allow housekeeping enough time to accommodate. If you are already onboard and want to split your bed, alert your cabin steward; it might take several hours to complete this request.
Bvlgari-brand toiletries are provided in suites, but in all other cabin categories you'll get Norwegian Cruise Line's lemongrass product. You will find lemongrass-scented lotion, soap, shampoo, conditioner, cotton balls and cotton tips.
Studios: Studio cabins are perfect for solo travelers because they measure about 107 square feet of living space. Each has one bed, a bathroom with a shower and a desk and chair. The interior is modern and bright with new furnishings from the 2016 dry dock. There are four studio cabins on Pride of America, each which has access to a Studio Lounge. The lounge features four armchairs and a table. It is designed for people staying in studios to hang out, although in practice it isn't used very much (there aren't any windows in the room).
Interiors: There are 224 inside staterooms, measuring 132 square feet each. Each has cherry wood finishing, a coffee maker, 17-inch flat-screen television, desk and small stool to sit on and a bathroom with a shower. Some interior cabins have bunk beds, in addition to the main bed that can be separated into two twins. Interior cabins can fit up to four people depending on configuration but because of the size they can also be a solid option for solo travelers. Note: Solos will have to pay two adult fares for this accommodation offering, as opposed to Studio rooms, which are priced for a single person.
Oceanviews: The Pride of America has 178 ocean-view staterooms (some with views obstructed by the ship's lifeboats) measuring 144 square feet. Ocean-view rooms have either a large picture window or a smaller porthole; all have a main bed that can be divided into two twins, plus a sofa bed or two pulldown bunk beds. Inside you'll find cherry wood furnishings, a desk and chair, flat-screen television, safe, mini-fridge, coffee maker, and a bathroom with a shower.
Balconies: There are 613 balcony staterooms on Pride of America, each ranging from 179 to 233 square feet. The rooms feature cherry wood finishing, a desk and chair, flat-screen television, mini-fridge, coffee maker, a safe and bathroom with a shower. A floor-to-ceiling sliding-glass door opens to a balcony with two chairs and a small table.
Obstructed View Family Suites: Pride of America has four obstructed view two-room family suites, each measuring between 330 and 356 square feet of space. The larger of the two rooms has two single beds that can be combined and two pulldown bunk beds. The smaller room is more like a den with beds to fit small children. The size of the obstructed family suites is well suited for families of five or less with small children in tow. Like the other cabins, these feature cherry wood finishing, a safe, coffee maker, plus desk and chair. The window on these suites looks out onto one of the ship's lifeboats. The obstructed-view family suites do not have a balcony.

A separate dining area features another piano, this one a baby grand, and a teak table with seating for six people. The master suite bathroom has a shower and tub, a double vanity and walk-in closet.
Passengers staying in one of Pride of America's suites are in for a treat as there are many perks only for them. The ship has seven butlers onboard; one butler is assigned to each suite. Butler service is from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. and they can take care of everything from food and beverage and packing and unpacking to shoe shines and laundry services. They also deliver daily canapes and clean in-suite coffee makers. The butlers are a huge source of information for onboard activities and services as well as island excursions and general activities.
Butlers can assist in making dinner reservations, spa appointments and excursion reservations. Additionally, suite guests are given priority check-in, invited to complimentary breakfast and lunches at Cagney's Steakhouse, as well as to an invite-only cocktail reception to meet the ship's captain.
