7N Hawaii 4 Island Cruise Tour
Day 1 (SAT) Honolulu, Oahu (Embarkation 7:00 pm)
Arrive in Honolulu
City sightseeing and lunch
Embark the journey
Welcome cocktails & Briefing for a chance to meet your fellow participants
Many other ships call here as well. Oahu is the third-largest island in the chain but it’s the most populated. Home to Honolulu, it’s a blend of old-world Hawaii melding with influences as diverse as those from Japan and Portugal. Perhaps that’s why Oahu is often referred to as The Gathering Place.
Be sure to head to Waikiki, Pearl Harbor (visiting the USS Arizona Memorial is especially poignant whether you’re from a military family or not), Diamond Head, Hanauma Bay, and the North Shore. A lot of visitors check out the Polynesian Cultural Center while families enjoy Sea Life Park Hawaii and Wet’n’Wild waterpark. If you want to learn to surf, you can do so on Waikiki Beach.
Note that you likely won’t get a feel for all Hawaii has to offer if you only stay on Waikiki, so promise yourself to get out of Waikiki and explore more of Oahu too.
Day 2 (SUN) Kahului, Maui (8:00 am arrival / ) - 7 May (MON) (/6:00 pm departure)
here are so many reasons to visit Maui but it’s absolutely the best place in the Hawaiian Islands to view humpback whales from November through May. For whale-watching tours, head to Lahaina—which used to be a whaling town, but is now dedicated to preserving the humpbacks habitat along the Auau Channel between Maui and Molokai. The dock at Lahaina is also the departure point for a variety of catamaran snorkeling trips to Molokini as well as dolphin and whale-watching tours. Some cruise lines call on Lahaina while others visit Kahului near the airport.
Maui is Hawaii’s second-largest island and it looks sort of like a butterfly from above. That’s because a volcanic “doublet” formed the island with two shield volcanoes overlapping with an isthmus between them. The hippie town of Hana is situated along the infamously difficult to drive, one-lane Hana Highway in the east. Major tourist destinations are found in the south (Kihei, Wailea, and Makena) and along the West Coast (Lahaina, Ka’anapali, Napili, Kahana, and Kapalua).
The West Maui Mountains are a backdrop from many resorts in the west and mount Haleakala is more centrally located. It rises 10,000 feet above sea level and is a popular tourist destination at sunrise and sunset. Stop at one of Maui’s up-country ranches after your tour of Haleakala.
There are approximately 30 beaches ringing the island, making it a popular destination for swimming, snorkeling, and windsurfing (especially at Kahana Beach Park). You can find a variety of beach types here, from gold sand to pink, green, red, and black.
Norwegian’s Pride of America overnights on Maui so you have plenty of time to drive the gorgeous Road to Hana and enjoy an evening luau. Try the Feast at Lele or the more family-friendly Old Lahaina Luau
Day 4 (TUE) Hilo, Big Island (8:00 am arrival / 6:00 pm departure)
The largest of all the islands, Hawaii Island continues to grow in size as lava flows into the sea. Beyond the volcano, there's so much to experience here, from cowboy country, luxury resorts to eco-adventures. The eruption of Kilauea Volcano began in 1983 and continues today, making Hawaii Volcanoes National Park a hot spot for visitors.
While visiting Hawaii Island, you can also experience some of the most beautiful and challenging golf courses, sacred cultural and historical sites including the birthplace of Hawaii's first king, Kamehameha I, and the first missionary church in the state.
In fact, the Big Island is larger than all of the other Hawaiian Islands combined and consists of five volcanoes: the extinct Kohala; Mauna Kea, which is dormant; and three active volcanoes—Hualalai, Kilauea, and Mauna Loa. When measured from the mountain’s base at the sea floor to its highest peak, Mauna Loa is the tallest mountain on the planet and you can visit it and Kilauea when you head to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
There are two ports you may visit on the Big Island: Kona on the West Coast and Hilo on the East Coast.
The East Coast of the island is home to lush tropical rainforests, majestic waterfalls, and volcanoes. Once in Hilo, visit Rainbow Falls for cascades and plunge pools, Akatsuka Gardens for beautiful orchids, and Volcanoes National Park. The park is fascinating since you have the opportunity to see Halemaumau Crater and Thurston Lava Tube. Another interesting site is Lava Tree State Park. It was a rainforest at one time when lava flowed across it, burning the trees that are now eerie moss-covered skeletons.
Day 5 (WED) Kona, Big Island (7:00 am arrival / 5:30 pm departure)
The West Coast is known for its almost lunar landscape and luxury resorts with golden sand beaches stretching from Kailua-Kona north to Waimea. Expect to visit Kealakekua Bay, St. Benedict’s painted church, Puuhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park, and Anaehoomalu Bay for the beach. Grown in the rich volcanic soil, Kona coffee, (and Kona coffee tours) is exclusively Hawaii Island. And the coffee is unmatchable. Chocolate are crafted here and many visitors—especially those with children in tow—visit the Original Hawaiian Chocolate Factory. You can enjoy plenty of watersports and, if you’d like to spy sea turtles, just enjoy the beach and you’re likely to see a few swimming right off shore.
Day 6 (THU) Nawiliwili, Kauai (10:00 am arrival / )
Kauai is known as the Garden Isle and—at 6 million years old—it’s the oldest main island in the Hawaiian archipelago. It’s located northwest of Oahu and is Hawaii’s fourth-largest island. The port city here is called Nawiliwili. Kauai is perhaps the most rustic of all the major islands in the group. The fertile valleys are a beautiful contrast against the volcanic mountains and there are plenty of photo-worthy waterfalls to visit. Waimea Canyon, part of Waimea Canyon State Park, is known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. The Waimea River carved out the massive canyon and it truly is an awe-inspiring site as is the rugged Napali Coast on the island’s North Shore. The coastline is only accessible via boat or the Kalalau Trail that starts at Kee Beach. It’s a terrific place to hike or kayak.
Seventy percent of the island is inaccessible by foot, but it's still a hiker's and sightseer's paradise. The sheer beauty of Kauai is unsurpassed and adventure and exploration are the keys to enjoying this island to its fullest.
Day 7 (FRI) Nawiliwili (/ 2:00 pm departure)
