Sail through the breathtaking scenery of the Hawaiian Islands on this magical vacation. The highlight of this Hawaii cruise tour is a 7-night cruise around the Hawaiian Islands aboard Norwegian Cruise Line’s Pride of America. On this Hawaii cruise, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in many activities, or you can do absolutely nothing at all!

Maui, one of the stops on this cruise, has been voted the best island in the world, and you’ll have a chance to experience its breathtaking scenery, wonderful beaches, cascading waterfalls, and charming Hawaiian towns. The Big Island of Hawaii offers black-sand beaches, curious lava formations, the world’s most continuously active volcano, fields of coffee and macadamia nuts, and more. Visit both Hilo and Kona on the Big Island. Kauai, Hawaii’s oldest island, offers cascading waterfalls, golden beaches, tropical rainforest, and more.

On this Hawaii cruise tour, you’ll have a chance to visit and experience these islands plus enjoy three nights in Honolulu in a partial oceanview room at the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani. Globus also includes a sightseeing tour on Oahu featuring Pearl Harbor’s famous Battleship Row, home of the USS Arizona, which commemorates the crewman who lost their lives in the historic Pearl Harbor attack. So grab your camera, pack your swimsuit, and be prepared to relax, renew your spirit, and enjoy the laid-back atmosphere in paradise!

The entire day is open to independent activities. You will have the opportunity to choose from a variety of shore excursions, including Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and Rainbow Falls. Experience the 80-foot falls that cascade into a circular pool in the Wailuku River—as they hit the water below, rainbows often appear in the mist.
