Oh yeah and about the pride of america, from what I heard the govt began to build the hull here in the US and then gave up plans on it, so NCL bought it and brought it to Europe where they completed it, but due to its narrow size they had to put about 15 decks on it.

2 weeks before it was finished, it began to sink at the drydock due to a bad storm. NCL's parent line, star cruises, had to give over the Spirit to take the place for the Pride of America until it could be repaired.
