NCL America welcomes the largest U.S. Flagged ship ever built, Pride of Hawaii, to its fleet in April. Pride of Hawaii will join Pride of Aloha and Pride of America in offering seven-day, interisland cruises. In an ongoing effort to deliver an authentic Hawaiian experience, NCL America has also announced a partnership with several more Hawaii-based companies.

The line’s newest partners include Maui-based Roselani Ice Cream, Kona Brewing Company, Hawaii Taro Company, Pacific Biodiesel and Aloha Recycling.

The new relationships will enable NCL America’s guests to enjoy quality ice cream made with homegrown ingredients such as Kona coffee and Macadamia nuts; Hawaii’s finest handcrafted ales and lagers from the state’s largest brewery; and delicious, meatless Taro burgers made from the indigenous Hawaiian plant.

NCL America has also chosen to work with Hawaii-based companies to recycle materials used onboard. Through Pacific Biodiesel, NCL America is recycling its used cooking oils to make a renewable, environmentally friendly fuel and the brand is also recycling its plastics with Aloha Recycling.

NCL America already has relationships within the Hawaii farming community to offer Maui-grown tomatoes, Maui Brand Natural Cane Sugar from Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Company (HC&S) and Hawaiian Gold pineapple from the Maui Land & Pineapple Company on board all of its Hawaii-based vessels. NCL America also plans to buy home-grown broccoli, romaine lettuce, cabbage, squash and green beans from the Maui Farmers Cooperative Exchange.

NCL America owns Polynesian Adventure Tours which provides tour and transfer services for passengers. The brand also works with various shore-side travel and service providers to book accommodations, tours and activities for its guests. Some of the line’s current partners include Maui Divers, Hilo Hattie, Arnott Tours and Kapohokine Adventures.
