Known as the "Valley Isle," this majestic island has three main peaks more than a mile high, thousands of breathtakingly beautiful waterfalls and pools, 120 miles of shoreline and more than 80 golden beaches. Highlights include Iao Valley, Haleakala Crater and Lahaina, a traditional old whaling town, full of character, shops and restaurants.

Day 4

Kahului, Maui (Overnight–6:00 PM)

After the overnight stay in Maui, you may wish to make the journey to the town of Hana. Drive along the gorgeous winding coastal roads as you experience the natural wonder of Maui! For beach lovers, visit the fabulous golden sand beaches of Kaanapali, where between the months of December and April each year you are almost guaranteed to see whales, without even leaving the beach.

Day 5

Hilo, Hawaii (7:00 AM–5:30 PM)

Brimming with Hawaiian tradition, Hilo takes you back to an earlier island culture. The town will charm you with its quaint buildings and unique shopping. Hilo is the flower capital of Hawaii, and gardens and blossoms are everywhere. This is truly a special stop on your cruise – take the opportunity to visit Volcanoes National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Here you will see a real, smoking and steaming volcano as you look out across the Kilauea Caldera. Thurston's Lava Tube is another rare experience, where else will you get to walk through a tunnel formed by molten rock?

Day 6

Welcome to Kona! Spend your day exploring the "Gold Coast" in a wide variety of ways – riding in a horse-drawn carriage, skimming the seas in a glass bottom boat, snorkeling below the waves.

Day 7

Nawiliwili, Kauai (8:00 AM–Overnight)

This verdant little isle exudes peace and tranquility. Nature has been good to Kauai, creating craters, mountains, rivers, canyons and glorious stretches of palm-fringed beaches.

The Island's spectacular scenery including canyons, cliffs and waterfalls, makes it a firm favorite to take a helicopter flight-seeing tour of a lifetime!

Day 8

Nawiliwili, Kauai and the Na Pali Coast (Overnight–2:00 PM)

It's no wonder that an impressive list of Hollywood productions have used this emerald island as a setting.

And to close this day of historic insight and reflection, there will be a drive through the military Cemetery of the Pacific, situated in the Punchbowl Crater.

Also included on Oahu is our full day island tour where we’ll take you away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki and show you more of this diverse landscape where some highlights will include the famous surfing beaches of the North Shore, the village of Haleiwa and the Dole Pineapple Plantation.

All your inter-island flights on Hawaiian Airlines are included and next stop after Oahu is the island of Kauai where you’ll witness stunning landscapes with every turn.  Have your camera ready to capture Opaekaa Falls; the Wailua River, during a leisurely boat cruise and the romantic Fern Grotto. The hanging ferns and tropical foliage will leave you speechless and you may even catch a glimpse of a wedding taking place.

The “Valley Isle,” known as Maui, is your next island to explore. We’ll take you to the quaint town old whaling town of Lahaina that will spoil you with art galleries and unique shops, a true delight to stroll around. You’ll stay in the resort of Kaanapali, which during the months of December to April is one of the best places in the world to spot migrating humpback whales, right from the beachfront.
