Four Island Cruise
Can’t make up your mind which of the Hawaiian islands to visit? See them all on this wonderful 4-island Hawaii cruise!
NCL’s 4* Pride of America departs Honolulu every Saturday evening on a 7 night, full board voyage throughout the Hawaiian islands. Choose from a variety of Staterooms: Inside, Outside, Outside with Balcony or Suite. With 14 different restaurants (you dine “Freestyle” which means you choose when and where you want to eat each day), 9 bars and lounges, library, spa & fitness centre, 2 swimming pools, 4 hot tubs, a kid’s club and excellent family accommodation, you might not want to disembark at any of the islands! But Aloha Holidays strongly recommends that you do as there are several great optional excursions on offer in each location.
Day 1 (Thur): Arrive Honolulu in the late evening and transfer to your hotel.
Day 2 (Fri): Time to explore Honolulu and perhaps take in a tour to Pearl Harbor and visit the USS Arizona Memorial.
Day 3 (Sat): Board Pride of America no later than 5pm. Depart Honolulu at 7pm
Day 4 (Sun): Arrive Maui at 8am. Enjoy optional excursions such as the Road to Hana, snorkelling in Molokini or visiting the Haleakala Crater. Overnight in port.
Day 5 (Mon): Depart Maui at 6pm.
Day 6 (Tue): Arrive Hilo, Hawaii’s Big Island at 8am. Optional excursions include a visit to Volcanoes National Park. Depart at 6pm. You might see the glow of lava flowing into the sea as you journey along the coast this evening!
Day 7 (Wed): Arrive Kona, Hawaii’s Big Island at 7am. Try one of the other excursions on offer or meander round the charming town. Depart at 6pm.
Day 8 (Thur): Arrive Kauai at 8am. Why not visit the Waimea Canyon, known as the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific”, on an organised tour today? Overnight in port.
Day 9 (Fri): Depart Kauai at 2pm.
Day 10 (Sat): Arrive Honolulu at 7am. Evening flight home.
Our 9 night package is based on a 7 night full board voyage with two people sharing an Outside Stateroom and it includes 2 extra nights (room only) before the cruise in a 3* hotel with Partial Ocean View in Honolulu. The package includes:
- Your choice of hotel or self-catering apartment accommodation for 2 nights in Hawaii.
- 7 night full board cruise in cabin category of your choice including Government taxes and port fees (where applicable) and Premium All Inclusive package to include wi-fi, gratuities, drinks, etc (T&Cs apply).
- Full information pack to include maps, information on transfers, places to visit, tours to consider, etc.
- Car hire may be arranged on request but is not recommended for stays in Honolulu.
- Airport transfers in Hawaii can also be arranged.
As Aloha Holidays uses scheduled airlines, daily departures are available year round. The cruise ship departs & arrives in Honolulu every Saturday.
Please bear in mind that the cheapest fares do not necessarily make for the best itineraries. You could end up with long layovers in connecting airports. Aloha Holidays will always do its best to ensure your flight itinerary makes best use of your budget, your holiday time and your preferences (e.g. fewest flight segments, fastest route, best value).
Low Season 2018: allow €2300 per person (cruise & land package only)
High Season 2018: allow €3200 per person (cruise & land package only)
These guideline prices are based on staying in a 3* hotel with a Partial Ocean View room in Honolulu for 2 nights pre-cruise and 7 nights full board cruise in a Outside Stateroom. Better views, higher category hotels and different Stateroom category will change the price.
The hotel guide prices include local taxes and are based on room only accommodation. They do not include daily resort fees which are paid locally to the hotel (estimate $25-35 per room per day as a rough guide).
Return flights from Ireland to Hawaii are extra. As a guide allow from approx €1150 – €1900 pp depending on the season. This price includes 1 checked bag per person. It does not include stopping off in mainland USA on the way to/from Hawaii, which would add to the cost of the flight.
We have taken mid-priced estimated air fares (not the very cheapest) and included known taxes to give you a ballpark budget figure. They are probably a bit on the high side but there could easily be cheaper fares available or special hotel offers, particularly if you book in advance. Upgrading to Business Class is a great honeymoon option, particularly if you travel during low season when it may only cost a few hundred per person extra.
All packages offered subject to availability at time of booking. Prices correct at time of print (Feb 2018). E&OE.
During your Hawaiian cruise, there are a range of optional excursions and tour available on each island visited. These may be booked on board. You can change your Stateroom category, change your hotel category in Honolulu, add extra nights in Honolulu before and/or after your cruise or even head back to one of the outer islands for a few days after your cruise. We are happy to build this into your tailor-made itinerary, however changes to the cost will apply.
If visiting another island, as a rough guide, allow an extra €250 per person for the each inter-island return air fare (including taxes) but remember you will have to pay at the check-in desk for your bags (estimate $25-$30 per checked bag) on each flight segment. If you decide to stop off for a few nights in mainland USA on your way to/from Hawaii the airfare will increase and you will have to pay for your checked bags locally at the check-in desk for each internal flight segment in the USA (i.e. Los Angeles to Hawaii). Allow approximately $25-$30 per checked bag per flight segment.
