NCL Announces Launch Itineraries for Pride of America

July 28, 2004
Norwegian Cruise Line announced today that Pride of America will launch on July 23, 2005. The 81,000-ton, 2,126-passenger vessel will start off by sailing seven-night Hawaiian roundtrips from Honolulu. Those cruises will call at Hilo and Kona, on the big island of Hawaii, and will spend two days apiece in Kahului, Maui and Nawiliwili, Kauai.

The ship will also offer three- and four-day cruise options. The three-day version begins in Honolulu on Saturdays and include one day in Hilo and two days in Maui before disembarking those passengers on Tuesdays. Four-day cruisers will embark in Maui on Tuesdays, visit Kona and Kauai, and return to Honolulu on Saturday.

In addition, Pride of Aloha will permit folks to use Maui as an embarkation/disembarkation option, offering a seven-day roundtrip from Maui along with the current seven-day roundtrip from Honolulu. Pride of Aloha's new Maui to Maui cruises will begin on June 4, 2005, in conjunction with the ship's Honolulu to Honolulu itinerary. Guests sailing from Maui to Maui will embark and disembark on Saturdays; those sailing from Honolulu to Honolulu will embark and disembark on Sundays.
