Departs: Returns:with Norwegian Cruise Line
Day 1 : Fly to Honolulu
A traditional lei greeting welcomes us to tropical paradise! Then we check-in to our hotel for two nights. Rooms feature private balconies and an ideal location close to the white sand beach with views of Diamond Head.
Day 2 : Pearl Harbor
After breakfast, we journey to the most moving site on Oahu, Pearl Harbor. On December 7, 1941, the Japanese attacked the Navy’s Pacific Fleet here, catapulting the U.S. into World War II. We stop by the visitor center to view the exhibits that recall that pivotal day. Then, embark on a Navy launch to the USS Arizona Memorial, which spans the sunken battleship. After a Welcome Lunch along the waterfront, enjoy a narrated panoramic tour of Honolulu’s major sights. Enjoy the remainder of the day at your leisure. B,l

After a free morning, we transfer to the only U.S.-flagged cruise ship, Norwegian Cruise Line’s Pride of America to begin our seven-night cruise. Enjoy all the benefits of NCL’s Freestyle Cruising, including the freedom to dine whenever and wherever you’d like. The on-board native ambassadors will teach you about their culture, providing a genuine Hawaii experience. D

Back on board, we cruise around the Big Island to Kona. B,L,D
