The Pride of America, Norwegian Cruise Line's ship in the
Hawaiian Islands, has returned from a drydock during which the ship received
new venues, redesigned public spaces and refreshed décor.
The cruise line's president, Andy Stuart, calls the Pride
"essentially a new ship."
“This is much more than just a fresh coat of paint and
new drapes," Stuart said.
Every stateroom received new bedding, new furniture, new
flat-screen televisions and updated flooring.
New venues include the Soho Art Gallery, featuring works
of art available for purchase; the Perspectives Photo Studio; and Dolce Gelato.
The ship’s wedding chapel is in a new location on deck six with new flooring,
furniture and wall fixtures.

The Skyline main dining room got a new entrance, new
carpet design, new furniture upholstery, new window drapes and new columns
throughout the restaurant. La Cucina, Norwegian’s signature Italian restaurant,
is now an "elegant and intimate venue," Norwegian said.
The ship’s specialty restaurants East Meets West,
Cagney’s Steakhouse and Jefferson’s Bistro also received enhancements.
