Day 1 : Fly to Honolulu

The moment we step off the plane we will feel the aloha spirit that draws so many travelers to this lush island paradise. Enjoy a traditional flower lei greeting. Then, we check-in to the beautiful Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort & Spa for three nights. Each room features a private balcony.

Day 2 : Pearl Harbor

We begin our city tour with the most moving site on Oahu, Pearl Harbor. At the visitor center, we view the galleries and exhibits that recall December 7, 1941, the day that catapulted the U.S. into World War II. A documentary film precedes our Navy launch out to the USS Arizona Memorial to observe the sunken battleship. E Komo Mai (welcome) new friends over a Mai Tai during lunch at Gordon Biersch Brewery. Situated on the Honolulu Harbor waterfront, we can enjoy views of passing ships while we dine.
