Take a Fabulous Island Getaway Cruise

Hawaii is a great place to take a cruise. There is so much to do. You can sit on the beach or go sight seeing. You can check out the museums at Pearl Harbor. The food in Hawaii is great. You will go to sleep at night at one place and wake up the next morning at another all rested and ready for another day of adventure.

Hawaii is a year around cruise destination and the cruises can last from seven to 15 days.  The most popular cruises are between the Hawaiian Islands with boarding and disembarkation at a Hawaii port.

When you go on a Hawaiian cruise, you only have to unpack once. The ports that are usually visited are Honolulu, Oahu; Lihue, Kauai; Hilo, Kailua Kona; Big Island and Kahaluu or Lahania; Maui.

While you are on the cruise ship, you will have entertainment, food and snacks.  Many of the cruise ships have supervised activities for children and teens.  The cruise ship usually travels at night between islands.

Some Hawaiian cruises start in  California, Ensenada and Vancouver.  Some itineraries include French Polynesia ports such as Papeet, Bora Bora and Moorea.

Many people go to Hawaii and stick to the sand and sun and they are missing some beautiful sites.  The beaches of Kauai are white, the Big Island is black and in Maui, they are gold.

The six islands have eight national parks.  There is Waimea Canyon in Kauai, which is 3,500 feet deep and is known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific.  The Big Island has the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park where you can see one of the world’s most active volcanoes.  There are many historical sites in Hawaii and  there are four museums at Pearl Harbor for you to visit.

You will find fine dining all over Hawaii especially on Waikiki, Lahania and on the Kohala Coast on the Big Island.  In Maui, you can take the farm tours.  You can visit the small town of Holualoa and sample real Kona coffee.

After all the activities on land have been exhausted, it is time to come back to the cobalt blue ocean.  There is no better place to try surfing than on the waves of Hawaii.  You can also scuba dive or snorkel to see the wildlife and reefs.

One of the best things about taking a Hawaii cruise is that you will find that you have plenty of time to visit each port of call.  The islands are close enough to each other that the ships are able to arrive very early in the morning and not leave until the evening.  This will give you plenty of time in each port.  When you have this much time you will find out you can enjoy the islands better.  You will have enough time to take some great shore excursions.  Hawaii is very visitor friendly.  It is an easy place to get around on your own.

The Regent Hawaii cruise and Crystal Hawaii Cruise offer great luxury cruises to and thru the Hawaiian Islands.  These luxury cruise lines allow you to sail from port to port in luxury and comfort.

Sailing from the port of Honolulu and waking up in Hilo or any other port of call is magical when you are visiting the Hawaiian Islands.  The mountains of Hawaii were all formed from violent volcanic eruptions.  There are several  very active volcanoes that you may be able to visit when you are on shore.

There are many different types of shore excursions when you visit the islands including the Pearl Harbor Memorial.  There are Glider rides on the north shore of Oahu.  There is golfing on excellent golf courses and a lot more.  Any time you spend in Hawaii is a wonderful time.  Hawaii is a place you will enjoy it so much you will want to go back.
