Norwegian Cruise Line has altered its weekly itinerary in
Hawaii to drop two ports on the Big Island, where a volcanic eruption of the
Kilauea volcano shows no sign of flagging.
Since the volcano first erupted on May 3, Norwegian has
altered itineraries on an ad hoc basis. It has now set a new itinerary for the
Pride of America.
Until further notice, the ship will not call in Hilo and
Kona on the Big Island. The new schedule calls for the ship to depart Saturdays
from Honolulu, visit Kahului and Lahaina on Maui on Mondays and Wednesdays,
then go to Nawiliwili on Kauai on Thursdays before returning to Honolulu on
"Hawaii is an incredible destination and we are proud
to have faithfully visited its ports for the last 14 years," Norwegian
said in a statement. "We will continue to monitor the situation and hope
to return to Hilo and Kona again as soon as possible."
