The 24 new suites on Deck 13 will be outfitted with premium custom furnishings, fabrics, carpets and ultra-luxurious bathrooms. Two of the 24 suites will be Deluxe Owners Suites. These 566 sq ft suites, sleeping up to four guests, will feature a large bedroom, separate living area and a state of the art bathroom featuring custom mosaic tiles.
The remaining suites will be Family Suites ranging from 363 to 416 sq ft, most sleeping up to six guests. The two Deluxe Owners Suites will have connecting doors to the adjacent Family Suites, sleeping up to 10 guests when combined, the perfect option for families or groups who wish to travel in luxury together.
Two of the Family Balcony Suites will be ADA compliant to accommodate guests with disabilities. One of the many highlights of the suites will be their expansive balconies, ranging from 245 sq ft for Family Suites to 410 sq ft for the Deluxe Owners Suites, giving Pride of America’s suite guests the largest balconies in the fleet, perfect for taking in the Hawai`ian scenery.
Guests will enjoy pampering from dedicated butlers and concierge, plus an array of 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 will be able to do so in one of four new Studio staterooms. Designed and priced for the solo traveller, these staterooms will feature a full-size bed, along with a separate bathroom area. Four new inside staterooms will also be added to the area on Deck 13.
All of the new suites and staterooms will go on sale in October 2012 for sailings beginning 7 September, 2013.
Additional refurbishments include:
Pride of America will return to her seven-night Hawaii itinerary departing from Honolulu when she returns to service in early April 2013. Ports of call include an overnight in Kahului, Maui; Hilo, Hawai`i; Kona, Hawai`i; an overnight in Nãwiliwili, Kaua`i; and an afternoon cruise past the breathtaking Nãpali Coast.
“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 $30 million – in enhancing this ship with beautiful new suites, studios for solo travellers, new restaurants and more.”
