    Waikiki is the perfect place to relax

    Cruise itinerary Day 1


    After a night of cruising, today you will dock in Kahului, Maui. A surplus of natural splendor and the genuine hospitality of its people have helped to make Maui Hawaii's second most popular island. Explore the fascinating history of the town of Lahaina, plant yourself on a pristine beach, or play one of the world's most beautiful golf courses.

    Cruise itinerary Days 2 to 4

    Your cruise also offers a range of onshore excursions for you to take, such as Authentic Taste of Maui, a culinary tour designed to introduce you to a range of authentic Hawaiian dishes and beverages; Molokini Crater & Turtle Snorkel tour; a comprehensive tour of Maui’s West, taking you to Iao Valley, Maui Tropical Plantation and the Maui Ocean Centre; and much more.


    Another day in beautiful Maui! Take the opportunity to soak up experiences you might’ve missed yesterday with another onshore tour, or explore at your own leisure, kicking back on one of its many golden sand beaches. In the evening, board your cruise ship and set your sights on the port city of Hilo.


    The entire city of Hilo is like one giant greenhouse with spectacular tropical flowers at every turn. With a full day to explore, you have the opportunity to visit the town's well-preserved historic buildings, which date back to the turn of the century and showcase Hawaii's unique architecture.

    Just 48 kilometers away, the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is the home of the active Kilauea Volcano. You can visit this visually stunning countryside, with its lava fields from past eruptions and extraordinary black-sand beach composed of lava fragments, on an onshore tour.

    Other activities you can participate in today include a comprehensive city tour, a waterfall and crater hiking tour, a ziplining adventure, and much more.


    After a night of cruising, you will arrive in beautiful Kona. With sunny, warm weather and crystal blue waters, Kona offers the quintessential Hawaii experience.

    Cruise itinerary Days 5 to 7

    While here, we recommend you partake in a variety of surfside fun. Snorkel amongst a kaleidoscope of tropical marine life, take a surfing lesson or a kayaking trip, head out to deeper waters for some deep-sea fishing, and much more. The cruise line offers a variety of onshore tours and activities to help you make the most of your day.


    Leaving the mainland, you’re off to visit one of Hawaii’s smaller islands. Named after the Wiliwili trees, which once lined its picturesque harbour, this lovely port of Kaua’i is your gateway to what many believe to be Hawaii's most beautiful island. On "The Garden Island," nature is truly the star, from the dramatic mountains of Kokee to the cool rainforests of Haena.

    Enjoy a traditional Hawaiian Luau

    With overnight accommodation in Nawiliwili, you have the perfect opportunity to watch an extravagant luau while you dine on a delicious Hawaiian feast.

    Cruise the stunning Napali Coast

    In the afternoon, enjoy a scenic cruising experience through the Napali Coast. Spanning 27 kilometers along Kauai's North Shore, the Napali Coast is a sacred place defined by extraordinary natural beauty. The emerald-hued cliffs with razor-sharp ridges tower above the Pacific Ocean, revealing beautiful beaches and waterfalls that plummet to the lush valley floor.

    As this is your last full cruising day, take the opportunity to enjoy any onboard experiences you might’ve missed.


    The big, blue Pacific and stunning Koolau mountains serve as a dramatic setting for Hawaii's largest city, welcoming you back into Honolulu. Disembarking your cruise ship, say goodbye to any new found friends and make your way to airport for your flight home with your private airport transfer.

    After such an unforgettable getaway, we’re sure you’ll be back. Until then you have the memories and photos you took along the way.
