Escape to the Paradisal Islands of Hawaii This Winter!

As the only cruise line that offers to take you around all four islands of Hawaii in seven days, Norwegian Cruise Line will ensure you get the most out of this magical place. Relax at sea in between adventurous days exploring a different tropical island. What are you waiting for – answer your calling to warm air, remarkable scenery, and undeniable relaxation!

Stroll Through Rich Culture and Deep History

Join the O’ahu Explorer Cruisetour aboard the Pride of America ship for an all-around incredible experience.  Let the island pull you into an adventurous time capsule to explore its extensive history. Step into World War II history and visit Pearl Harbor’s USS Arizona Memorial, or walk in General MacArthur’s footsteps on the Surrender Deck of the battleship USS Missouri. Also prepare to immerse yourself into the rich, preserved culture of Hawaii at the Polynesian Cultural Center and Kualoa Ranch to experience the traditions of some of Hawaii’s original inhabitants. Don’t forget about Kona either! Kona is a historic city that is known for their beautiful ancient temples, rich macadamia nuts, and aromatic coffees.  Be sure to stop at a Kona coffee house to replenish your energy with a flavorful brew that will awaken your senses. When your mind is filled with awe and appreciation for Hawaii’s history, take a step back into modern day and visit the Waikiki strip to check out the shops just steps away from Waikiki beach!

Endless On-Shore Outdoor Adventures

Feel one with wildlife and snorkel with magical sea turtles and more than 250 different species of fish at the Molokini Crater.  The Molokini Crater is a small island just off the Maui coast and is one of the top ten snorkel sites in the world!  Once you’ve been swooned by tropical fishes and you’re back on dry land, step foot onto the massive Haleakalā volcano that last erupted in 1790, and hike to the summit for a spectacular 360° view of the island. Prefer a bird’s eye view? Take a Circle of Fire helicopter ride to see current volcanic activity that can’t be experienced from below. If you’re seeking an even greater adrenaline rush, hop on a 24-foot Zodiac raft and go zipping along the coast of Kona as you pass spinner dolphins, pilot whales, sea turtles, and manta rays! And of course, you can’t end your trip without seeing some of Hawaii’s famous hypnotizing waterfalls. The town of Hilo is the home of the unbelievable Akaka Falls which is a towering 422 feet tall. Whichever direction you’re heading, there is always an adventure that awaits you in this magical place.

Experience a Sensational Lū`au

Wind back for the night as you gather with others around a traditional fire pit to enjoy a cultural extravaganza known as a lū`au.  Observe the roast pig ceremony, invigorating fire dances, and mesmerizing hulas before indulging in a delicious buffet feast full of local eats and desserts. Now imagine this taking place all under the evening sky of the magical Hawaii.
