Pride of America to dock in Pearl shipyard

ADVERTISING

Norwegian Cruise Line’s Pride of America will enter Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard’s dry dock 4 on Friday for a required certification, the Ship Repair Association of Hawaii said.

The 920-foot cruise ship has regularly docked in past years in the shipyard’s largest dry dock for regulatory certifications and periodic maintenance.

But late last year it appeared that scheduling conflicts might force the work to be done outside of Hawaii, the association said.

Repair contractor Pacific Shipyards International, the Navy shipyard and NCL formed a public-private partnership that “worked through the challenges and created a schedule to support the dry docking for the Pride of America” Friday through Sunday, the association said in a release.

The trade association and “voice” of the ship repair industry in Hawaii said it is an “economic win for Hawaii.”

NCL said Pride of America, which holds 2,186 people, is the only cruise sailing four Hawaiian islands in seven days year-round.
