Inaugurated in 2005, Pride of America is the first US-flagged cruise ship in nearly fifty years.
Pride of America was designed to pay homage to the spirit of the United States, with patriotic artwork on the hull and American-themed public spaces. She is currently the only American registered major cruise ship serving the Hawaiian market from Honolulu and sails to Kahului (Maui), Hilo (Hawaii), Kona (Hawaii), Nawiliwili (Kauai). 
Because Pride of America is flagged in the United States, the ship is required to carry a U.S. crew. There are 935 crew employed on board Pride of America in a variety of Deck, Engine and Hotel positions.
