Delivery of Norwegian Cruise Line's Pride of America - the new ship that was to kick off interisland Hawaii cruises under a U.S. flag - will be delayed several months because the ship sank to the bottom of its berth in Bremerhaven, Germany, during a storm last week. NCL instead will use its Pride of Aloha, the former Norwegian Sky, for the Pride of America's published itinerary of seven-day interisland Hawaii cruises, until the new ship is operational.
