Hawaii, the ever-popular Polynesian paradise of unbridled beauty is still one of the world’s top vacation destinations offering an abundance of things to do and see!
Start with two nights in a hotel near famous Waikiki Beach. An excursion to Pearl Harbor and the exhibits at the USS Arizona Memorial are included with a city tour of Honolulu. Then, set sail on Norwegian Cruise Line’s Pride of America, United States flagged and crewed and the only cruise ship allowed to sail these Hawaiian waters without touching a foreign port. Set off from Oahu and cruise the Big Island of Hawaii, Maui, and Kauai—all without having to unpack to see each island.
Daily optional excursions are offered to enhance your experience, and with two ports on the Big Island and port overnights in both Maui and Kauai, you’ll have the extra time and freedom to choose more than just one excursion on each island.
Norwegian Cruise Line’s Freestyle Cruising mentality means your time on board is less structured, giving you the flexibility to create your own dining experience, and the liberty to dress up, dress down, or have pizza delivered to your stateroom.
Sail through paradise at your own pace for a Hawaiian encounter that is perfect for you!
