With its sheer natural beauty, warm hospitality, seemingly endless activities and attractions, it’s no wonder almost nine million travelers visit Hawaii each year. Capture the pure spirit and soul of Hawaii with Norwegian Cruise Lines.
Only Norwegian visits four islands in seven days with overnight stays in Maui and Kaua’i, so you’re on an island each day. Norwegian Cruise Line offers a no-hassle, stress-free experience in Hawaii with a multi-award-winning itinerary incorporating four beautiful Hawaiian Islands—Oahu, Maui, Hawaii, and Kauai—onboard Pride of America. Here are five reasons we think you should experience Hawaii by cruise.
1. You’ll sail the Hawaiian Islands from the get-go
Norwegian is the only cruise line that sails round-trip from Honolulu year-round. This means you’ll start your cruise in Hawaii from day one. It also means you can vacation when it best fits your schedule—Spring break? Winter holiday? Summer excursion? You can discover beautiful Hawaii anytime. Being able to spend more time in port will give you the chance to experience Hawaii like a local, including both sunrises and sunsets in Maui and Kauai!
2. Save time and money
A one-way island-hopping flight will cost about $100 per person. But with a cruise, your inter-island transportation is already included. And while island hopping sounds like fun, it’s no fun wasting precious vacation time trying to book flights, followed by standing around airports waiting to take those flights. Also, eating land-based meals in Hawaii is expensive, but you can enjoy free restaurants onboard the ship.
3. You only need to unpack once
Chances are if you’re a first-time visitor to Hawaii or even if you’re a repeat guest, you’re going to do some island hopping. This could mean packing and re-packing several times throughout your trip. On a cruise, you only must do it once while you go from island to island.
4. Maximized island time.
With the most time in Hawaiian ports over any other cruise line—almost 100 hours—you’ll have the plenty of time to do what you want like hike up a waterfall, take a helicopter ride over an active volcano and brush up on your hula at an authentic luau. You can even book your Norwegian Cruise Line shore excursions before you leave home—there are 84 to choose from—which provides peace of mind in knowing you’ll be getting top-rated tours.
5. You’ll always have an ocean view.
Which, can’t be said about all hotel rooms. Even if you’ve booked a hip Studio Inside stateroom for just yourself or a Family Inside cabin for four, you’ll always have an ocean view when the ship is docked at the pier.
