Many of Pride of America’s public spaces, along with several of the ships’ restaurants as well as bars and lounges, were refreshed from top to bottom to receive a modern updated look with new contemporary décor and furniture as well as new lighting and flooring. Every stateroom was touched by this renovation, receiving new bedding, new furniture, new flat screen televisions and updated flooring. Pride of America guests will now be able to enjoy not only refreshed spaces but also new modern venues including the Soho Art Gallery, the new Perspectives Photo Studio and Dolce Gelato. Those looking to tie-the-knot while in any of the ship’s enchanting ports-of-call can do so in the ship’s wedding chapel, now in a new location on deck six with new flooring, furniture and wall fixtures. 

The ship’s pool deck underwent a complete refurbishment to create an upscale feel onboard with a refinished pool, new loungers and Jacuzzis. Guests looking to enjoy some quiet time can now do so in the completely transformed Conservatory, library and card rooms. Relaxation will take center stage at The Mandara Spa, which is being expanded and revitalized. Dining enhancements include extensive renovations to all of the existing complimentary dining venues, most notably the ship’s Skyline Main Dining Room. La Cucina, Norwegian’s signature Italian restaurant has been transformed into an elegant and intimate venue where guests can enjoy fine Italian fare. The ship’s specialty restaurants East Meets West, Cagney’s Steakhouse and Jefferson’s Bistro also received enhancements.
