The Original Mardi Gras: The First Carnival Cruise Ship

Carnival Cruise Line expects to launch its newest member of the Carnival Family: Mardi Gras. Let's look back at the original!

Norwegian Cruise Line has decided to suspend some ports in Hawaii due to the Kilauea Volcano which is active and causing major disruption across the Big Island.

Since the Hawaii Volcano first erupted and started pushing out lava cruise lines started keeping a close eye on developments. With no end in sight and to keep cruise passengers away from any danger including a risk to the air quality, Norwegian Cruise Line has decided to suspend some ports of call for the Pride of America cruise ship.

The NCL ship is based in Hawaii year round but now she won’t be calling in Hilo and Kano on the Big Island. The 7-night itinerary the ship usually sails has been altered as follows:

  • Saturday (Arrive 7:00): Honolulu, Oahu
  • Sunday (Depart 17:00): Honolulu, Oahu
  • Monday (Arrive 8:00): Kahului, Maui
  • Tuesday (Depart 18:00): Kahului, Maui
  • Wednesday (Arrive 8:00, Depart 18:00): Lahaina, Maui
  • Thursday (Arrive 8:00): Nawiliwili, Kauai
  • Friday (Depart 14:00): Nawiliwili, Kauai
  • Saturday (Arrive 7:00): Honolulu, Oahu

Before the itinerary change Pride of America was calling in Hilo on Tuesdays each week but now the ship will depart Kahului instead. A visit to Kona was on Wednesdays each week but now a call in Lahaina will take place instead.

On Twitter Norwegian Cruise Line has stated that the situation in Hawaii is being monitored and hopefully a return to the two ports can happen soon. Before your cruise vacation in Hawaii, it is advised to first check with the cruise line as there could be further itinerary changes from Princess Cruises, Crystal Cruises and Oceania Cruises.
