The 2,124-passenger vessel will go in for 14 days worth of renovations on 23 March 2013 in Honolulu, Hawaii.
“As the only large US-flagged cruise ship, Pride of America offers a unique and extraordinary vacation to four of Hawai`i’s most popular islands,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s chief executive officer. “We want to ensure that we are continuing to enhance the guest experience on this one-of-a-kind vessel. Therefore, we are making a major investment – over US$30 million – in enhancing this ship with beautiful new suites, studios for solo travellers, new restaurants and more.”
The work will include the addition of 24 suites, four studio stateroom, four inside staterooms and the line’s signature Brazilian steakhouse Moderno Churrascaria. There will also be wireless internet throughout the ship, new carpeting, flat screen TVs in all staterooms, updated décor, updated gym, new signage, gift shop, art gallery amongst other work.
The new rooms will go on sale in October, ready for September 2013 sailing.
