CRUISE LINES 1-28-2004
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.
