Norwegian Cruise Line – Hawai’i Cruising Guide 2018 – 2021
No one lets you capture the pure spirit and soul of Hawai`i like Norwegian Cruise Line. Only Norwegian visits 4 islands in 7 days with overnight stays in Maui and Kaua`i, so you’re on an island each and every day. Which means you’ll have plenty of time to hike up a waterfall, take an optional helicopter ride over an active volcano and brush up on your hula at an authentic luau. Or uncover even more by adding a few days on land before your cruise with our O`ahu Explorer Cruisetour. And since we’re the only cruise line to sail round-trip from Honolulu year round, and to offer almost 100 hours on shore, you can holiday on your schedule. Who wouldn’t want to spend 7 days in paradise? Leaving, on the other hand, may take a lot of convincing.
