This ship was originally designed by American Classic Voyages. They intended her to be the first large passenger ship in half a century to be constructed in a U.S. shipyard. After the cruise company filed bankruptcy Oct 19th 2001, leaving the ship partially built at the Ingalls shipyard Mississippi, the Norwegian Cruise Line bought the unfinished ship and barged its hull to the German shipyard. A severe storm in early 2004 at Lloyd Werft's Bremerhaven shipyard resulted in Pride of America being flooded up to the third deck and sinking to the bottom of an 11-meter deep water-bed, this delaying her from entering service as intended in 2004.

Pride of America has 15 passenger decks, 2 pools, 10 bars, 8 restaurants with the largest seating 628, fitness center, 3 deck high theatre, 650 cabins with balconies, 178 cabins with ocean view, 203 inside cabins, can carry 2,146 passengers and an all American crew of 1,100.
