Every Wednesday, the cruise ship Pride Of America drops anchor off Kailua Kona and ferries people ashore to explore the offerings of the town and of the Big Island.
What I like most about the ship is how the name is reflected in the paintwork – all red, white, and blue, and stars and stripes. Indeed this ship was built in the U.S.A. and sails under an American flag. And even though the name of the company that operates the ship is Norwegian Cruise Line, it’s now an American company. Best not to mention that Norwegian Cruise Line’s parent company is based in Bermuda, and not because it’s warm and sunny there.
