The AP has reported that NCL’s latest ship, Pride of Hawaii, has set sail
in Hawaii. The Pride of Hawaii, the largest, most expensive U.S.-flagged luxury liner launched its scheduled service of weeklong voyages around the islands this week. This vessel completes Norwegian Cruise Lines' $1.4b plan to bring three new vessels to the islands.
The new ship is the last in a series of U.S. cruise ships — joining the 1,900-passenger Pride of Aloha and the 2,100-passenger Pride of America — in Norwegian's venture to turn Hawaii into one of the world's top cruise destinations.
