Norwegian Debuts New Suites Aboard Pride of America

Norwegian Cruise Line unveiled 32 new staterooms this week on the ship’s Hawaii-based vessel, Pride of America. The final elements in a $30-million project that began in March, the addition of the new luxurious suites, studios for solo travelers and inside staterooms offers guests a new way to experience a spectacular inter-island cruise in Hawaii.

The 24 new suites on Deck 13 are outfitted with custom furnishings, fabrics, carpets and bathrooms. Two of the 24 suites are Owner’s Suites. These 566-square-foot suites, sleeping up to four guests, have a large bedroom, separate living area and a state of the art bathroom with custom mosaic tiles.

The remaining suites are Penthouse Suites – including two Deluxe Penthouse Suites with Large Balcony – ranging from 363 to 459 square feet, most sleeping up to six guests. The two Owner’s Suites will have connecting doors to the adjacent Penthouse Suites, sleeping up to 10 guests when combined, the perfect option for families or groups who wish to travel in luxury together.

Guests will also have access to butlers and concierge services, as well as multiple exclusive amenities such as Tranquility mattresses from the Bliss Collection by Norwegian, Lavazza Espresso Makers, Elemis bath products, private dining for breakfast and lunch and more.

Guests wishing to travel solo in Hawaii can now do so in one of four new Studio staterooms on board Pride of America. Designed and priced for the solo traveler, these staterooms have a full-size bed, along with a separate bathroom area. Four new inside staterooms were also added to the area on Deck 13.

Pride of America entered a 14-day dry dock on March 23, 2013 in Honolulu, Hawaii. The 2,186-passenger ship received renovations including the addition of Moderno Churrascaria, the line’s Brazilian-style steakhouse, and Cagney’s, the line’s traditional 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 more.
