Total meals included:
Overnight flight to Honolulu.
Today, arrive in Honolulu on the island of Oahu for a three night stay at the Sheraton Princess Kauilani, conveniently located in the heart of Waikiki Beach. Oahu is renowned for its warm sparkling waters, vast golden sand beaches, and cultural, historical and scenic highlights. Why not feed the dolphins at the Sea Life Park or visit the Polynesian Cultural Centre? Visit Pearl Harbour, site of the dramatic Japanese air attack in 1941 that drew the USA into World War II or explore downtown Honolulu at leisure.
Spend the morning at leisure before transferring to the Pride of America for the start of your exciting seven night Hawaiian Islands cruise.
The bustling harbour is minutes away from some of the island's most scenic spots. Perhaps visit the Iao Valley State Park and the Maui Tropical Plantation, or play the world-renowned golf links at nearby Kapalua. Alternatively visit Lahaina, once a whaling centre and capital of the Hawaiian monarchy, on the shores of West Maui, with dozens of boutiques, shops, restaurants and historical sites.
Hilo is the gateway to the Volcanoes National Park, a natural wonderland and site of the vast Kilauea Crater, the world's most active volcano and home of the Hawaiian fire goddess Pele. Snow-capped Mauna Kea and Kilauea Crater tower dramatically over the island of Hawaii. In the evening, enjoy a scenic cruise past Mount Kilauea and continue overnight to Kona.
Playground of the Big Island, Kona is best known for its famous coffee plantations, but is also steeped in history and legend. Perhaps visit Kealakekua Bay, where Captain James Cook anchored, and later died, or the Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park, a famous 'Place of Refuge' and one of the most authentic and well-preserved archaeological sites in Hawaii.
In the morning of day 10, arrive in Nawiliwili on the verdant and lush island of Kauai, considered the sacred 'Garden Island' and Hawaii's oldest inhabited island. See the 10 mile long, 3,600 feet deep Waimea Canyon, known as the 'Grand Canyon of the Pacific', where a unique combination of water, sunshine, clouds and canyon walls create countless brightly coloured rainbows. Enjoy an optional visit to the Kauai National Botanical Gardens, one of the world's premiere botanical research institutions or a helicopter flight over the breathtaking Na Pali coastline with its waterfalls, canyons and secluded beaches.
After breakfast, disembark the Pride of America and transfer to the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani for a one night stay. Enjoy the day at leisure.
