ABOUT PRIDE OF AMERICA

 

Inaugurated in 2005, Pride of America is the first US-flagged  cruise ship in nearly fifty years.

Pride of America  was designed to pay homage to the spirit of the  United States , with patriotic artwork on the hull and American-themed public spaces.

She is currently the only American registered major cruise ship serving the Hawaiian market from Honolulu, sailing to Kahului (Maui), Hilo (Hawaii), Kona (Hawaii), Nawiliwili (Kauai).

Because she is flagged in the United States, Pride of America is required to carry a US crew. There are 935 crew employed on Pride of America.
