Find the Best Cruises in Hawaii

Hawaiian Cruises

Travelers who want to experience all four Hawaiian Islands in one visit, will enjoy the opportunity to explore paradise on a Hawaiian cruise. The most popular ports of call in Hawaii include Kahului, Kona, Honolulu, Nawiliwili and Hilo. From the mainland, you can take a cruise from Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco or Vancouver. Other Hawaiian cruises depart from Honolulu. With a Hawaiian cruise vacation, you can see the best sights on all islands without having to transport your luggage between hotels.

Cruises departing from the mainland will involve days at sea during which travelers have the opportunity to enjoy amenities aboard the cruise liner.

There are tons of great sights and excursions to enjoy in Hawaii. Each island has its own unique flavor and experiences to share. Different cruise packages offer different excursions, but here is a list of some of the top adventures to consider:

  • Helicopter rides with aerial views of the islands
  • Zip lining through paradise
  • Golfing on beautiful courses set among natural tropical wonders
  • Surfing
  • Off-road adventures to explore north Kohala
  • Scuba diving
  • Snorkeling
  • Lava fields and Lava Tree State Park
  • Whale watching
  • Pearl Harbor
  • Coffee plantation tours
  • Chocolate plantation tours

In addition to these activities, every cruise guest should be sure to attend a luau during a Hawaiian cruise. You’ll experience the native and culture of Hawaii, with entertainment and dancing late into the evening.

The point of departure for your Hawaiian cruise will depend on a few different factors. First, the cruise line with which you wish to travel will narrow your departure options. For example, Disney Cruises and Royal Caribbean often depart from Vancouver while Norwegian and Carnival have several cruises that set out from Honolulu. Carnival also departs regularly from Los Angeles.

Your point of departure may depend on the number of days you wish to be at sea. Departure from the mainland will result in a longer cruise with more days spent on the cruise ship while those departing from Honolulu will spend a higher percentage of their Hawaiian cruise in port and on excursions. Cruises departing from locations in Hawaii also tend to be shorter.

A Hawaiian cruise vacation has something for everyone to enjoy. The four tropical islands team with life and lush vegetation. Outdoor enthusiasts can participate in casual sports or more extreme options. Less physically demanding options are available as well. History buffs will enjoy exploring the rich history of Hawaii at temples, the birthplaces of ancient kings and important World War II sites. Whether you depart from the mainland or enjoy a shorter cruise departing from Honolulu, you and your entire family will find something to delight you as you visit these four breathtaking islands.
