Pride of America joins the fleet

Norwegian Cruise Line took delivery of its newest ship Pride of America Tuesday in Germany.

The Pride of America is headed to Hawaii, where it will offer island cruises and join the NCL fleet.

The 920-feet ship can carry 2,146 people and its interior decor reflects the best of America.

The Pride of America is one of the ships that received an exemption from President George Bush to operate in Hawaii, even though it would be built abroad. The ship originally was intended for the now-bankrupt American Classic Voyages. After Bush's exemption, NCL bought the incomplete hull and took it to the shipyard of Lloyd Werft in Bremerhaven, Germany, for construction.

Last year, a gale caused extensive damage to the interior of the near-complete ship delaying its arrival in the islands by nearly a year.

Here is a gallery of pics that shows construction of the ship.
