The 32 new cabins represent the finishing touches for NCL’s $30 million enhancement project that started in March this year.
Guests booking holidays onboard Pride of America can now be able to choose to stop in one of the new 24 fully refurbished suites, one of the further 4 refurbished inside rooms or one of the four new solo rooms.
The 32 new cabins are elegantly designed and feature a range of warm, earthy tones and subtle pops of colour. They’re noticeably different to the other cabins on Pride, which you’ll find are decorated with brighter, more vibrant colours and adorned with abstract print patterns. Passengers choosing to stay in the new suites will be able to enjoy expansive balconies: up to 1,200 square feet! These balconies are currently the largest on any ship in Norwegian’s fleet.
Below, you can see a taster of the new cabins (centre), plus a look at two of the new venues that were added/refurbished during the ship’s dry dock:
The four new solo cabins are sure to be a hit with travellers too, and no doubt they’ll be quickly booked up by single travellers; this type of room is currently soaring in popularity. Norwegian Cruise Line first introduced solo cabins onboard their ships Norwegian Epic and Norwegian Breakaway. Single travellers prefer solo rooms as they can avoid the dreaded double occupancy rate they’d ordinarily pay to travel alone.
About The Refurbishment:
Pride of America entered dry dock back in March 2013. During this time, the ship was renovated and given two new steakhouses (one Brazilian-themed, the other more traditional), ship-wide WiFi, new carpeting throughout, flat-screen TVs in all cabins, refreshed decor and upgrades to the fitness centre.
About Pride of America:
This wonderful 2,000+ passenger ship made her debut back in 2004. She was named “Pride of America” in recognition of being the first U.S. flagged passenger cruise ship for over half a century.
The ship really is the Pride of America too: it’s staffed entirely by an all-American crew and it it has plenty of US-themed eateries and bars that holidaymakers will love to experience! Visit the Cadillac Diner for some 1950s American-inspired food, such as traditional burgers, or visit the Aloha Cafe for some freestyle buffet dining. The Liberty Main Dining Room is a wonderful treat for tourists too: enjoy panoramic ocean views while soaking up the American-history in the room. You’ll also find a range of other cuisines onboard, so there’s literally something for everybody!
Pride of America is stationed in Honolulu, from where she makes roundtrip tours of Hawaii throughout the year.
