Types of Cruises - Hawaii Cruises
CRUISE TO AND AROUND HAWAII
A cruise is the ideal way to see the Hawaiian Islands.
Bad weather on one island doesn’t mean your whole holiday is ruined, you unpack once only, everything is included, and there is no need to worry about transport from one island to the next – that usually all happens while you’re asleep.
Everything is organised for you – even the shore excursions and the preparations for them in the form of educational lectures and safety demonstrations. No need to worry if you had no time to do your homework before you came.
An Hawaiian cruise is also perfect for return visits – there is plenty still to see on a second or even third Hawaiian cruise.
Hawaiian cruises are usually no longer than one week, though some, beginning and ending in the USA, tend to be a little longer. Similar options involve repositioning to the Polynesian Islands like Tahiti. These types of cruises obviously offer a greater number of days at sea and attract a slightly different kind of cruise passenger. Holland America Line, for instance offers 15-Day Hawaii cruise vacations beginning and ending in downtown San Diego, and its 17- to 21-day cruises begin or end in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Since 2006, Hawaii has become the fastest-growing cruise destination market in the United States with more than 250,000 passengers embarking on cruises in Hawaii each year.
Norwegian Cruise Lines has a great way for you to go island-hopping in Hawaii. With nearly 100 hours of port time and a unique 7-day itinerary calling on Oahu, Maui, Kauai and the Big Island of Hawaii, this is a great way to see so much Hawaii. There’s nighttime sailing by Kilauea and cruising the Napali Coast and if you're a golfer, NCL is partnered with some of the best golf courses in Hawaii.
