This vibrant ship provides guests a collection of amenities with more than 15 restaurants and exciting nightly entertainment - a perfect combination to discover paradise and sail in luxurious style.

Next is Hilo and Kona, Hawaii, with the opportunity to snorkel along the “Gold Coast.” Then Nawiliwili, Kauai, that embraces the spectacular canyons, cliffs and waterfalls the “Garden Island” is well-known for.

Kahului, Maui (8:00 AM–Overnight)

Maui is the second largest of the Hawaiian Islands and you will have almost 2 full days to explore! Known as the "Valley Isle," this majestic island has two 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.

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.
