High 28 Low 21 Hyatt Regency Waikiki Resort
This morning, “Remember Pearl Harbour” as you set out on a historic journey — from the site of the attack on Pearl Harbour to the signing of the Japanese surrender on the USS Missouri. Travel by naval launch to the white marble-clad USS Arizona Memorial. After this poignant experience, take a city tour of Honolulu highlighting the historic Iolani Palace, the impressive state Capitol building, Kamehameha’s statue, and the moving National Cemetery of the Pacific, known as the Punchbowl. Later today, embark on a 7-night cruise aboard the Pride of America, the best way to island-hop Hawaii. From the moment you step into the Capitol Atrium, with its soaring Tiffany-glass dome and grand staircase, you’ll see that this fabulous floating resort has been designed to make your time at sea truly memorable. You will be dazzled by the entertainment in the state-of-the-art lounges and a myriad of dining options. Whilst on board, breakfast, lunch, dinner and nightly entertainment are included.
Day 3. Cruising – Maui
The entire city of Hilo is like one giant greenhouse with spectacular tropical flowers at every turn. Opt to visit the town’s well-preserved historic buildings that date back to the turn-of-the-century and showcase Hawaii’s unique architecture. Or, purchase an excursion (from the cruise line) to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, home of the active Kilauea volcano.
Day 6. Cruising – Big Island – Kona
Cruise to the other side of the Big Island to Kona for the quintessential Hawaii experience. Sunny, warm weather and crystal blue waters entice visitors to partake in a variety of surf side fun. There are lots of shops to explore or perhaps you’ll search for a black sand beach and enjoy the unique feeling of the black sand between your toes.
Day 7. Cruising – Kauai
Kauai is named after the Wiliwili trees that once lined its picturesque harbour. Many feel the “Garden Island” of Kauai is Hawaii’s most beautiful island. From the dramatic mountains of Kokee to the cool rainforest of Haena, nature takes on a starring role.
Day 8. Cruising – Kauai
The day is yours to enjoy this beautiful island at leisure. The choices are endless! You may consider purchasing an excursion (from the cruise line) to Waimea Canyon. Carved thousands of years ago by rivers and floods, this canyon is often referred to as the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific.”
Day 9. Honolulu – Disembark Cruise Ship
Your cruise ends in Honolulu. Disembark the ship and journey to Oahu’s famous North Shore. If there is such a thing as a perfect wave, you’ll likely find it here. Learn why an international community of surfers gathers at the legendary surf mecca of Haleiwa. Rich with island history, Haleiwa is now the social and artistic hub of the North Shore. Here you’ll find surfers fuelling up at the restaurants in its plantation-era buildings before hitting the famous beaches of Waimea Bay, Ehukai (Banzai Pipeline) and Sunset Beach. No trip to the North Shore is complete without making a stop to savour one of Hawaii’s favourite treats — shaved ice. Celebrate the end of a wonderful trip at a farewell dinner this evening.
