Are you ready? Get set… Let’s go to paradise!

Hawaiian Cruises

Let’s start with THE essential must-do trip to get the most out of Hawaii. A 7-night cruise to the beautiful island paradise onboard Norwegian Cruise Lines’ Pride of America. Perfect!

Norwegian Cruises is the only cruise line that homeports in Hawaii, ensuring convenient, year-round departures every Saturday – and that creates several possibilities for you to cruise at any time of the year.  With an itinerary that has been hailed as the best for over 12 years in a row, you know you’re definitely on the right ship and headed towards a perfect holiday.

Your seven days of paradise lets you lose yourself in lush rainforests and splash under magnificent waterfalls of Maui and Kauai. Let the soaring cliffs of the Napali Coast take your breath away. Cruise by the Big Island’s Kilauea Volcano – the spectacular light shows of the most active volcano in the world. Adventure awaits you around every corner, and we haven’t even mentioned Pride of America’s onboard features! Comfortable cabins compliment the recently updated interiors of this Hawaiian Adventurer. Broadway-style entertainment, pools and spas, exceptional dining, kids club and more are waiting for you to climb onboard.

From Hawaii to Canada & Alaska including Rocky Mountaineer Rail Road and an Alaska Cruise

A magical cruise onboard Celebrity Cruises Celebrity Eclipse on a Transpacific cruise from tropical Honolulu to scenic Vancouver. (Or why not sail all the way from Sydney and take in Tahiti and Bora Bora along the way – sounds magic! Check out From Sydney to Hawaii below)

This is your perfect opportunity to relax, take in the sea breezes and truly cruise the oceans. No distractions, just you and the sea, and a floating hotel ready to satisfy every whim. Start your adventure with a Hawaiian cruise throughout the islands to really get to know Hawaii, or get onboard and cruise to your heart’s content.

Think about how far you have come, and revel in the knowledge that Canada, the magnificent Rocky Mountains and Alaska’s superb fjords and wildlife await just over the horizon. After you’ve been sun-kissed and relaxed from your cruise, take a ride on the iconic Rocky Mountaineer rail line and retrace the route of explorers and pioneers of 19th century Canada. Showcasing vast green fields and verdant forests, majestic canyons, glacial turquoise rivers, and the imposing stature of snow-capped mountain ranges, it’s another memory waiting to happen.

Take it even further with a beautiful Alaskan cruise from Vancouver (after all, you will be right there!), where you can discover a world of sparkling glaciers, playful seals, lumbering bears, and breaching humpback whales – a true change of pace from the warm tropical Hawaiian Islands – it’s your own fire and ice package all rolled into one!

From Sydney to Hawaii including New Zealand & Tahiti

This package is easy! You depart from Sydney on a Transpacific cruise across the Pacific and International Dateline onboard Royal Caribbean International’s Radiance of The Seas.

Imagine breathtaking sunrises and sunsets over the sea, tropical exotic ports, touch base in New Zealand, cross the International Dateline at Papeete in French Polynesia, and lose yourself in gorgeous Tahiti and Bora Bora (arguably THE most beautiful places in the world) where you can admire majestic waterfall valleys – and you’re only halfway there! A few more days enjoying the sea and you’ll find yourself in Honolulu. Head for Waikiki, go shopping in world famous Ala Moana, discover the serene landscapes, thundering waterfalls or travel back in time to learn about Pearl Harbor and the Pineapple plantations.

Enjoying yourself? Thinking it’s time to extend your stay with an essential Hawaii Cruise or a few extra days away enjoying Waikiki Beach, the local fresh fish and a great hotel where you can really get down to island time? Pick up the phone and give us a call today.

New York City with an Hawaii Stopover

Vacation Rewards® offers easy flights to New York City, where you can dine and shop in style as you take in the iconic sights of the city such as the Statue of Liberty, enjoy a Broadway play in Midtown Manhattan, take a stroll around Central Park, or visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art at the Upper East Side. Lovin’ that city vibe!

What about a taste of paradise before you go to take on the big city? Or maybe better, on the way home from the beautiful skyline vistas of the Big Apple. It makes absolute sense. A Hawaiian stopover creates the perfect combination of beaches and iconic cityscapes for a surprising holiday to the US of A!

Los Angeles with Hawaii Extension

Heading out to LA-LA-Land? For beautiful city landscapes with a sunnier disposition, you can’t go wrong with Los Angeles, California. You have Disneyland (the ultimate kids and adult adventure), Universal Studios, Hollywood sign and the Walk of Fame, Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive… and we are just getting started. Vibrant neighbourhoods meet golden beaches and flower-carpeted hillsides, creating the perfect mix of nature and eclectic cityscapes. This is where dreamers become Hollywood superstars!

LA is also a place where culinary worlds collide. The best tacos can be found just next door to the most authentic Korean dishes you’ll find in the west. Fancy a drink? Dirty martinis and craft brews will let you paint the town red, white and blue – woohoo!

Wanna take your US adventure to the MAX? We are talking Hawaiian extension people! Check out world-famous Waikiki Beach, grab yourself some fun in the sun, slow down to island time with a cocktail and tropical ukulele songs… and don’t forget your hula lessons. Or head over to Maui for volcanoes, spectacular waterfalls and whale watching, stunning sunset photos against the volcanic fire of Kona, marvel at the beauty of Kauai’s Na Pali Coast and more.

A package holiday with everything taken care of? Yes please – we can tell you more.

Design your own Package Holiday

What we love about Hawaii, apart from the warm sun and undeniably gorgeous islands, is the deep culture and rich history travelers experience by visiting Pearl Harbor, taking pictures of the scenic Diamond Head, shopping along the famous beachfront neighbourhoods in Waikiki and interacting with the locals. Plus, if you’re going all the way to the USA or Canada, you owe it to yourself to stopover in Hawaii for the ultimate adventure of a lifetime!
